Hi everyone! I'm new here at the forum, and I'm also a beginning photographer. I'm a Freshman in college, and I just completed a semester long course in Digital Photography (On my way to a Graphic Design major). The course was very enlightening and a lot of fun, but I'm a little disappointed, as well. We spent a lot of time learning to do color correction and those sorts of things with Photoshop, which, after seeing the difference it makes, is very helpful. However, we didn't spend as much time as we had hoped on the photography aspect. We basically learned the basics of composition (Leading lines, Rule of Thirds, etc.), and that was it. So basically, I'm looking for links, or tips, on anything else. Mainly, I want to learn a bit about my camera. I have a Sony Cyber-shot, DSC-W55. It's 7.2 megapixels, and it produced what I think are some absolutely spectacular prints, especially for a little point and shoot camera (I didn't want to drop the money on a DSLR and find out that I didn't like Photography, or didn't have an eye for it, or something similar.). I created a thread here in the General Gallery (http://thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=103329), so it would be awesome to get some more comments over there. However, like I said, I'm looking for tips and links about composition and such, and also about my camera. I'd like to learn about aperture and exposure, and whether I can even control those on manually with my camera, as, unfortunately, we didn't cover that in class. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
