New website demystifies DSLR photography|

University student Marc Harrington dropped us an email this week with news of an interesting new site he created as a university project.
Marc describes Pictorio.us, currently launched in alpha form, as "an interactive guide to Digital SLR photography". The site offers quite a range of information in a very approachable format. You'll find details on such topics as ISO sensitivities, shutter speeds, depth of field and more - as well as advanced topics such as high dynamic range photography. There's also a neat section describing the parts of a typical digital SLR, and how it works as a whole. A gallery section lets you browse through example images on Flickr - either restricting them to just those from Pictorio.us or from all Flickr users.
All in all, a pretty useful site for anybody who wants a fun way to learn a little more about their digital SLR. Our congratulations to Marc on the launch!
