    2. once you have mastered composition, give your already good compositions some depth (experiment with A mode) by using different apertures. (DOF)

    3. And once you know what the aperture does, you would like to further enhance you very good compositions with motion (experiemnt with S mode) either motion freeze or motion blur.

    after that you will have full control of your camera and it will be time to learn light
    wah dis i totally agree wif!

    What I'd like to ask is simple. If you've got no experience whatsoever but enjoy taking photographs, what does one learn in photography while using a SLR?

    It's a little vague, I understand. So as the topic says, let me summarise:

    1. What basic skills are important in photography?
    2. In what order would you learn these skills today, if you were starting from scratch?

    Thanks all. I'm sure that I'll get usable, constructive advice from this community. Which reminds me ... I think point 0 above from my friends would be: go to clubsnap and read
    Try this website:

    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.

    2) the technical part get a book by the same author "understanding exposure".
    This book will show you the relation between ISO,aperture and shutter speed. The author calls it photographic triangle

    Have fun shooting!

    By the way, those comments/advice given by your friends... to me they are guidelines but not the MOST important.
    I am currently reading the 2nd book mentioned i.e 'Understanding Exposure'. It is indeed an excellent book, especially so for beginners who wants to learn more about the technical aspects of photography.
