Website of The Week: Digital Photography School

Screen shot of the Digital Photography School website
The Digital Photography School website has been on my blog roll for over a year, and has become my first ‘port of call’ whenever I want to catch up on the latest camera reviews, photography tips, or tech tips on how to get the best out of my camera. To quote from the home page of the DPS:

Welcome to Digital Photography School! Discover how to use your digital camera with our Digital Photography Tips. We are a community of photographers of all experience levels who come together to learn, share and grow in our understanding of photography.

This is a massive site, and it might take you some time to get your head around it, so my advice is to start your reading or research in that part of the site that you are particularly interested in right now. For example, if you are looking to purchase your first or new camera, start with the reviews. Of course, it helps if you have some idea of the brand or type of camera you are thinking of buying, before you start wading your way through the hundreds of camera reviews on the site.

If you already have a camera, and want to learn more about how to get the best shots out of it, head over to the Tips and Tutorials section and search there for a specific question relating to your needs.

In the Post Production area of the site you will discover and endless array of advice to help you turn your images into the best possible photographs they can be after they have been downloaded onto your computer.

There is much to discover on the Digital Photography School site, and all skill levels are catered for. It doesn’t matter if you only own a ‘point and shoot’ camera, I am confident that you will find something of interest here to help you improve your photographic skills.


Here are just a few of the hundreds of photography books that are available via Amazon.Com to help you with your photographic skills.
The Digital Photography Book The Digital Photography Book, Volume 2 BetterPhoto Basics: The Absolute Beginner's Guide to Taking Photos Like a Pro
Understanding Exposure, 3rd Edition: How to Shoot Great Photographs with Any Camera Understanding Close-Up Photography: Creative Close Encounters with Or Without a Macro Lens Understanding Shutter Speed: Creative Action and Low-Light Photography Beyond 1/125 Second


  1. DPS is really very good site for early photographers. I generally read the reviews on DPS Site.

  2. Many aspiring students who want to start a career in
    photography in general, or specifically in the film industry, will be
    interested in discovering more about the top photography schools.
