I'm pretty much clueless when it comes to my new camera. I have NO idea what all of the terms mean. I read the manual and played around with all of the functions. I do not understand when to use the different functions and why I should use them. I am one of those annoying people who needs to know everything about something. I am not just satisfied knowing that something has the ability to perform a function. I have to know everything that goes into it. Perhaps this is the geek in me, but I can't help it!!
The other day, I had trouble sleeping. I slept for a whopping 3 hours and was wide awake. I decided to clean the basement and then play around on the net. I have been debating purchasing a book on photography. I cannot for the life of my decide which one to purchase. There are way too many choices. I figured the best thing I could do is start with the basics. I need to learn the photography terms. I found this site. It may be pretty basic and simplistic, but so am I. :) My plan is to take one letter of the alphabet a day and learn all of those terms. I figure I have to start somewhere.
Here are a couple of books I am contemplating:
Nikon D60 for Dummies- Self explanatory. I'm a dummy and feel really overwhelmed with my new camera. LOL.
The Digital Photography Book- Several blogs I have found recommend this book.
If you have any other suggestions, please don't hesitate to let me know. I'm open to anything.
