And it’s time for another review of interesting things around the photography blogs around.

And interesting they are:

Q&A – What happens inside your camera when you change the ISO? – Useful if you want to know more in detail how your camera works.

How to critique your own photographs – Learning how to critique your own photos is essential to improve. If a photographer is waiting for the feedback of other people only, his own critical sense will never develop.

A Photo Editor – Stock Photo Agencies – and speaking of stock photography, here is a BIG list of agencies.

    INteresting read on what happens when you change the ISO setting, many digital photogrpahers could achieve most of what they want to achieve by changing ISO rather than messing around with many other settings.
