I was after something along these lines too and the above have been useful to look at but a few of the main principles that I always hear about I can't find anything on. Namely things like composition and the rule of thirds. I think having a well composed an interesting shot is far more important than white balancing for example but I can't find anything on it! Anyone got a basic principles site or book!

Try here,

http://www.silverlight.co.uk/tutoria...se/thirds.html

or here,

http://www.camerahobby.com/Ebook-Rul..._Chapter15.htm

And this one has links to other sites for basic composition.

http://www.livingroom.org.au/photolo...ition_tips.php

Or just Google "rule of thirds"

Yes, I often wonder why more people don't do it. :?

But for specific help, you can't beat this forum. I find it invaluable.

Heres a good straight forward concise one which is what I had in mind. Its amazing how quickly some of these sites delve straight into the heavy stuff.
