Photography In a sense feels like it would be simple enough for the most part.

You use the device in your hands to look at something and you press a button to capture the image you want.

That's the gist of it, but there's considerably more to it than that, especially if you want to take something that accurately represents your intentions.

For Project Educate, I'll be featuring some deviation tutorials on Photography that I like and hope that you yourself will find useful as a budding, seasoned or humbled expert photographer.

They will be broken down in the form of Technical and Creative tutorials. Some will be focused on numbers and basic ideas to compose and make a quality photo and others will be focused on what you can do with those techniques to make advanced visual creations.

For the most part, these tutorials apply to anyone that owns a camera, whether it be your compact, point and shoot or a DSLR.

An awesome bunch of tutorials you have there. Definitely should include more! There are a bunch of names floating around deviantArt that provide some wonderful links and such to lessons on photography (in journals), or even how-to's or tips on what to do.

~photo-class is an amazing, unfortunately now inactive group dedicated to teaching folks about photography. I've studied quite a few of their how-to's, before going out into the field to attempt something, and find that it's a really awesome place for any photographer to stop by.

#PhotographyChannel doesn't have too too much in the way of tutorials, but from what I saw, there was a DIY lightbox scheme that did look fairly interesting to try.

=aksdareflection has an amazing DIY studio for some smaller work, found here; [link]

*The-House-of-Mouse had an amazing little tutorial on how to brighten up dark/dreary photos really quickly that I approve of (If you don't know how to colour correct already) ; [link]

There are a veritable ton of amazing tutorials, photographers, and and strategies to go about accomplishing the same thing-- just gotta look around to find them!

I'm really glad to see a number of awesome tutorials thrown together in one place-- `cweeks especially. I am going to have a lot of fun reading the two I found on his page -- Street Photography, and Seeing.
