    No Filter. Does anyone know a good website where I can learn more about photography. All my shots are mostly luck, but I want to turn that luck into skill.

    what they're going to teach you is basic stuff you'll get from many art books. Learning about composition, leading lines, zones etc...

    You'll learn that the more direct the flash in a subject's face, the younger they look. You'll learn about flash fills, depth of field, and that 1/60 shutter speed will freeze most motion in a 50mm lens, and that shutter speed must be faster the longer the focal length.

    Here's the ugly truth about learning photography:

    You learn by doing. Find a subject and decide how you want to present that subject... then ask specific questions on how to achieve your goal.

    You'll learn faster.

    Excellent! As chase said, very surreal.

    One tip to keep in mind when shooting into the sun... If you shoot with the aperature wide open, the sun will be completely round. As you stop it down, it will start to look more like a star.

    Amazing photo, very nicely done.

    I stumbled upon this website http://www.photosig.com

    Contains lots of beautiful photos but there's a fee to become a member. You can still browse some of the pictures and read the forum even if you're not a paying member.

    Which is better? I think round would be better right, but mine is more like a star.
