    Go for the Canon free course for all purchasers if you havent to start off. Then sign up those Canon courses like night shoots, food shoots, they are not too expensive, and it gives you the opportunity to learn about your camera, this would be a good way to keep within the budget. Then as you go along and save up, sign up at those camera workshops or courses which will cost more.

    Personally... I'd advise on the READ MORE, SHOOT more

    You'd need to read up a bit more on the basics of photography, how to meter, compose and use your camera fully.

    Next up is the practise where you can then learn more about what you've learned and put them to good use and see if you can really get the knowledge down pat.

    If not, then back to the books and find out where went wrong and learn more.

    Welcome~

    As zac08 highlighted earlier, although reading up is essential, hands-on is even more so.
    Would be good if you can find a kaki, to grow your skill together with. This method can help accelerate your learning process.

    I've got some eBooks for Canon DLSRs and General Digital photography.
    PM me if you'd like to have a copy.

    To all others:
    Let me know if you'd like to have a copy too.
    Will be glad to share.

    You might consider signing up a course at Singapore Photographic Society.
    Gotta pay, but not too expensive tho.

    Based on my past experiences, i would suggest u take the free course first and learn how to handle the camera settings 1st. Then, go for a basic photography course at places like PSS. It's cheap, affordable and give you chance to meet up with some kakis at the same level to shoot around with. Thereafter, you and your kakis will have to develop at different paces, either through shooting, reading books, taking advance and specialised courses liek travel, wedding, studio lighting or whatever.

    I wouldn't recommend skipping a basic course as the amount of $$ is low and you will be more committed and have a better structured learning environments and can meet some friends. Best, you get to pick the brains of the instructors and learn on the spot:P
