    hey guys, I love forums so i figured there had to be one or two floating around. I am 110% new to photography, but decided to pick up a DSLR. I got a Sony A330. I was told that a Nikon/Canon Rebel/or Sony A330 would be a good starter camera. I am confused on what everything means. Where would a good place be so that I could learn what the ISO does or how all this stuff plays into my shots??

    a great place to start is by reading this book:
    [ame=http://www.amazon.com/Understanding-Exposure-Photographs-Digital-Updated/dp/0817463003/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1275338387&sr=8-1]Amazon.com: Understanding Exposure: How to Shoot Great Photographs with a Film or Digital Camera (Updated Edition)…[/ame]

    it will teach you wonders

    well, this book is always highly recommended by everyone around here:
    http://http://www.amazon.com/Unders...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1275338344&sr=1-1

    i took a class at a community college about photography basics. they real advantage to that is having a teacher there who can answer any questions for you when they come up.
    and, of course, there's a TON of info here TPF. ask questions and remember the search feature is your friend!!! :biggrin:

    While waiting for understanding Exposure to arrive read your manual, a couple of times. Get familiar with all of the functions of your camera. You will learn when and how to use a lot of those functions later.
