    your mileage may vary, but I just picked everything up from books and the internet and a bit of practica experimentation. Get a good grip on the basic trinity of exposure first: shutter speed, aperture and film speed. Your first stop to acquiring this knowledge should be the library..

    What SLR did you get at the end huh?

    I didn't actually learn from a book, but learn from a stack of magazines that I'd bought 2nd hand from another CSnapper... Maybe you should nip around the library and see what's available? Most books give the basics more or less!

    Try a book called "learning to see creatively". not much technical details. But points on how to improve your thinking and composition skills.

    Actually it's easy for one to take pictures at scenic places, and it's a challenge for you to make your everyday surrounding look different.

    For me, I go around anywhere convenient whenever I wanted to test my camera, be it near my workplace, or along the way to work... ... There's really no need to say go out of your way to a particular place just to test your camera. Outings are good too, so that people who are more experienced could impart invaluable knowledge to you for free!

    For outings, you may want to join Azure's outing. Think he'd one planned on this Saturday. There's also one organised by Peterpan to the zoo this sunday. If not, you can always think of places to go, start a new thread in the photoshoot forums, and see who's willing to accompany you.
