This list is a compilation of some of the sites I have found useful over the years. Some of the resources I have used for either inspiration on some of my projects or I have frequented them to learn new techniques in the field and on post processing. This by no means is not a comprehensive list, but more a dynamic selection as I am continually scouring the Internet to perfect my craft.
