    Also good if you say what make and model of the SLR is. Then maybe someone who has it can start giving more helpful comments.

    Using the camera is the easy bit, finding something to use it on is the challenging part.

    There are plenty of tutorials on the web which can help you get started. They involve a bit of reading so make some time. The following one explains basic photography in clear and simple terms, there are pictures to aid in the explanation. I suggest you start from the first tutorial. Good luck.

    My advise is go for the course first. You will have plenty of time to shoot later. At least know the basics.

    Hi welcome,

    Don't stress yourself. Just read up a bit on the basics like shutter speed, aperture and the different parts and components of the camera you are using. Enjoy the course and learn along the way. Don't worry too much.

    By the way, which camera did you get?
    Minolta. Konica Minolta. Sony

    You can also see this tutorial from Canon, it is pretty graphic and show how apertures and shutter speed can change the pictures you take. Good luck and a lot of time.
