The Photographer's Message

These resources will help you with finding both background information and images.
*NOTE: Sending resources from databases to your Google Drive, copying and pasting articles and their individual URLs from websites into Google Docs (so you can cite them easily using Zoterobib), and organzing all your resources in one folder is a good way to keep organized.
*REMEMBER: Google docs allows you to highlight and make annotations using the highlighting tool and "add comment.".
