    When I was starting out I regularly bought Popular Photography and Photography Monthly. After over a year of subscription I stopped since the topics just repeats. I still browse them in case there's an article I find interesting.

    There are a lot of good photography books that teaches the basics. Best way to find the right book for you is to visit the bookstores and browse. If you find that it's easy to understand that its for you.

    Some basic stuff that you need to know
    1) How to get right exposure
    2) How to compose

    There are some books that specialize about exposure. Some about composition.

    Don't dwell too much on equipment.

    Cheers

    This is part of the fun in film photography. Experiment with different kind of films and find out which one works best for you. Of course you have to know when to use a particular ISO. Some films are good for portraits (films that give nice skin tone) and others are good for landscapes.

    Try out slide film, negative film, and b&w.

    Some of my favorites:
    Fuji Reala - ISO 100 - great for portraits
    Fujipress ISO 800 - a staple of pressphotographers (or so I heard)
    KodaK Portra VC ISO 400 - another great portrait film

    Fuji Velvia ISO 50 - the favorite of landscape photographers

    Seriously, your comments are the best thing coz it is you who want how the shoot is taken. Like others said, look for mag to see what kind of shots you like to take and learn to take them by doing more research.


    End of the day, it is pointless to spend so much to get your 35mm films scanned just to let people comment on them. Spend the money on getting books that show you the pictures, or how the pictures are taken. Or even spend the money on courses and learn the traditional way to print etc etc, so fun

    You can scan the prints if you have a scanner at home or have the shop make the CD for you when have your film processed instead of making prints. Go to a reliable lab.

    Cool Great help... Thanx... But...

    Thinking of making a portfolio, but no idea where to start from? How to make my portfolio presentable? Must I use portrait to make 1? Instead of getting those expensive albums, is there other ways to make 1?

    browse online galleries, everything and also browse more of the ones which interest you... read about composition and things like that..you'll soon get a good idea of what a "good" (~relative) picture is

    Cool Cheese... Thax...

    Pls advise on buying filters... Where they sell and roughly how much it cost? Not thinking of getting those screw-in types.
