    The Camera, The Negative, The Print....

    need I say more, these 3 books are pretty much fundamental in learning a lot about photography (film) from one of the masters himself.... Ansel Adams

    The understanding exposure is also a great book for people to grasp the ideas and techniques behind camera exposure and other things that play into photographs

    "Understanding Exposure" by Bryan Peterson is a great book. Everyone should have a copy. He explains a lot of techniques very well in it.

    The challenges at DPC are a fun game, but it's not like the 'real world' of photography by any means. You could shoot an absolutely epic photo that went on the cover of Time, and it could average a 5.5 there and no one would see it, just because it wasn't eye candy and you can't fit a caption in the title space... There's more focus on post-processing than photography in a lot of challenges, and subject matter is usually what people vote on rather than technique. Actually, that part is like the real world, but still...

    The site is a great resource. Go there, read up, join, get the hot kit everyone's suggesting (XTI, Tamron 28-75, Sigma 70-300 APO, 50mm 1.8, Dynatran 828, Mini Trekker, etc...), and go for it. It might be all you ever need, and you will learn a lot.

    Photography is fun...

    Personally the thing I have the most fun photographing is lightening...on a nice humid night. You need pretty quick reflexes and a good camera to catch it, but some pictures you get from them are simply amazing.

    Read through some of the tutorials on there. Trust me, you can learn alot from that site no matter what lever of photography you are at.

    Thanks for the link - cool site.

    "The Joy of Digital Photography" is a very good book, but I think the best way to learn is to just jump in and try. I am a member at (along with a couple other TechIMO members). You can join dpchallenge for free and participate in one Open Challenge per week. It is a good way to try new techniques and get honest feedback. You can also pay $25/year for more challenges as well as a place to store pics online and sell prints.

    I hope that helps.

    Photography Resources

    Can anyone recommend some online/print resources (books) for a person (me) that is looking at getting into photography?

    I just bought a Nikon d40 digi SLR w/ a 18-55mm lens, and am wanting to make it a hobby.
