How bout just try learning for yourself? Pick up a book in borders or check out the net for free lessons. Nothing is better than learning things out for yourself, so that you can learn at your own pace and time...and free too... So yeah, that's how i learnt...dun see why you can't either...
did I not sound nice...??
If I did then I am sorry, sometimes my fingers work faster than my brain.
Thanks catchlights for pointing that out.
Some of the courses are really basic and only can give you guidelines,
the real learning comes when you actively decide to go out and shoot.
Compare your shots with others and learn from your mistakes.
or better still learn from the mistakes of others.
