Hi All, I am new here and based in the UK, just found this website and am already addicted. I just wanted to let all you beginner photographers know of a great book that has helped me amazingly in producing some fantastic shots of my kids, friends kids etc. It's called 99 Portrait Photo Ideas and its by a top UK Photographer called Annabel Williams, it took me only an hour to read and it's now my 'bible'. So many great tips :O) you can buy it online from their website, it is worth every penny. Just wanted to share that with you, because it's helped me soooooo much.
