    Photo Technique Newsletters

    I receive several excellent free digital photography newsletters:
    1. Photojojo
    2. Digital Photography School
    They not only cover traditional photography techniques but also talk about unique things that you can do with digital photography as well as interesting things you can do with your pictures.
