Hello everyone, I am an amateur who knows very little about photography, the art and techniques involved. Could you recommend website where I can learn about style, lighting, technique, composition, etc...basically the various things that go into taking an amazing photograph.

thanks

Here's another ->very<- good one on Kodak's site, often overlooked. I think it's my personal favorite.

Indiawala -

Welcome to the "club"! I posted this this morning on another forum but thought you could use the advice:

dennis

I'm still a "newbie", probably always will be (where's the end of the learning curve?) My suggestions to those just starting out:

1. SEARCH... and SHOOT

2. Start a log of every photo taken so you have a record of what you've accomplished.

3.SHOOT & SEARCH

4. Using PE2 or PS or whatever software you have print contact sheets to go along with your log.

5. SHOOT & SEARCH

6. Get a copy of "Understanding Exposure (revised edition)" by Bryan Peterson. Probably the best 20 bucks you'll spend this week.

7. SHOOT & SEARCH

8. SEARCH.....


Dennis

"Only 3 posts but an unknown number of daily visits"

And start a notebook of all the articles from this and every other site you find interesting/knowledgable.

JMHO

Great link Rookie, thanks!

I have enjoyed reading through the articles on Megapixel.net. I think someone postedlinks before but here's a link to the main page:

http://www.megapixel.net/html/issueindex.php?lang=en

Cheers,

Jed


Edit: Sorry guys, the link did't work like I thought. When you link over (above) click articles from the left menu. It will take you to the page I intended :-)
