in general.

1. get familiar with your camera, read the manual, practice going through the buttons and menus.
2. get a nice book on general photography. so you can learn how shutter speed, aperture, distance from subject impact depth of field, motion blur, etc.
3. shoot alot, then critique your own shots, go through them see what you like and don't like, pick a few of those out and post for others to give you further feedback on.
4. and yea, have fun shooting alot, did i mention that one.

Hi, Beowolf.
I had some exposure to photography before finding this forum, but since have learned much from this forum by doing lots of reading and experimenting...
Looking forward to seeing some of your photos.
