    Hi, welcome, hope you enjoy this forum and find it useful.

    It will be better if you can get some books form National Library about photography for beginner. After you finish a book, you will have better understating about photography.

    Hope this help.

    Don't worry. Begin reading up articles on the Net. And post any queries you have here. There are many newbies around here. ( I am one)

    Not really, but reading a book will get you a better overall view and have a systematic learning,

    Here you will get very confuse if someone giving all kind of suggestion and options, it may or may not help you in learning photography. In short, you need to filter out what are the useful information.

    A film SLR would get u started.

    Alternatively, DSLRs like Canon 300D, 350D, Nikon D50, D70s, Minolta 5D would get u started.

    Be prepared to set aside at least $1.5K

    Yup!

    Better still, just making pictures simply for the heck of it! And then find ways to improve later.

    Hmm... I wun dismiss PnS for their learning ability but make sure he gets the right one. Not one that's fully automatic with little or no room to learn.
