While I’m a big advocate of digital and the convenience of doing as a means to learn, sometimes it just makes sense to read about it too. When I first started out with photography beyond the shiny green auto button, I did an absurd amount of reading. I felt compelled to read about other’s experiences using their equipment, knowing the ins and outs of the technical details and how changes in the numerous variables (aperture, shutter, metering, ambient light, temperature, etc) would impact the final image. And you know what? It helped a lot! It made the process of doing a lot more understandable because I was able to deduce why I wasn’t able to achieve the images I had envisioned.
There are millions of discussion threads out there that have answered your question a million times over. So what I’d like to do is just share some of those resources with you here in case you wanted to know more or get answers about photography. If you have questions and want my opinion, let me know! I’d be happy to share my thoughts as well. Check out the list after the jump!
