    I'm going to be on a train for a while and I'm not sure if I will have internet access while I am on amtrak. Either way I would like something to read and why not read some things about photography since I'm new to it. Anyone know of some good websites I can go to and download the articles so I can read them offline? I just purchased a package with a rebel xt if that would change your websites.

    Not sure about online articles but check your library and see if you can find a book called Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson.

    It's one of the best books to read if your new to photography.

    I bought Understanding Exposure. Good book.

    If you don't wanna buy books...
    strobist.com has lots of cool stuff.
    lighting-essentials.com has some cool stuff as well.

    I dono...there's probably lots more out there...but I can't think of them off the top of my head.

    I'm leaving tomorrow mourning for NYC at 6:40am. I won't have time to pick up books and unfortunately the books that are in the house are from the 70s and may be out dated.

    Anyone know how to completely download a whole website to work offline? I know how to do single pages and I know there is a way to download who websites but I don't know how.

    read the old books about photography. It's not like we don't still take pictures of people, places, and things ;)
