    I started with an old Kodak book on photography. These old books are good for basics. Like magic numbers on f/stop and shutter speed. eg f/1.4, 2, 2.8, 4, 5.6, 8, 11, 16 (they are all in multiples of square root of 2). Speed includes 1/60, 125, 250, 500, 1000. With that as memory aids you learn how to set your camera exposure eg 1/250 to stop movement blur of people, f/11 to increase depth of field for landscape. Reading the manual from front to back can be counter productive as manufacturers often cram gimmicks that are not essential for photography such as built in editing tools for videos. Unlike the latest mobile smartphone where you quickly seek information online, learning photography is a structured process. Master the basics before pushing the limits which often require expensive purchases like lens for bokehs, high end zooms, heavy tripods and expensive flashes. They are not neccessary for your precious baby photos and you can shoot flawless baby skin with almost any camera. Many equipments ended in buy and sell.
