Rick's Photography Site
Useful info, reference and photo site links

 
This started with my search for some new upgraded photo equipment as I transitioned from the film to digital world. A longtime avid photographer and a computer buff, I still had a lot to learn about digital photography. Here is a collection of the resources I found and use. If you have additional, info, insights, sites or materials to share, please add them my forum, or contact me to include, or list and link to them from here. I hope you find this site useful.
