    Vinnie,
    welcome to photography :)
    ask qs, post pics, learn learn learn. Few books I highly recommend are Understanding the Exposure by Brian (forgot the lastmane) and Digital Portrait Photography by Steve Sint.
    B/n the two, you should get an idea on what photography is about how to eat this soup :)

    Hi.

    The book author is Bryan Peterson - great book. I'm reading his "Learning to See Creatively." He as some short lessons on YouTube that are worth looking at.
