Talking First step into photography!

Hey
Came across this forum really randomly, can't even remember and it was only an hour ago!

Got my first SLR a few days ago, never done any photography before besides from the usual holiday snaps on a crappy Sony/Kodak camera! Interested me for a while so I decided to go buy one when I saw the 1000D on offer. Bought myself an 8GB SDHC card so just need a bag to get me out n about!

Any recommended books for reading about photography, all the technical terms for an amateur and techniques? Looked at getting "Understanding Exposure" but its out of stock on Amazon and Waterstones online so I'm going to have a look around for it unless anyone can recommend a better book?

Anyway, here's my first few shots just playing around with the kit lens in this room, not much in this house to shoot but I'm sure I can make a photo out of anything, whether its good or not will be a different matter
I'm going to keep my Flickr updated with all the semi-decent photographs I take anyway so feel free to add me as a friend on there

Flickr: TomSinclair's Photostream
(Need to get a photo of myself on there!)

Feel free to comment on the photo's there or here when I get them posted up, always looking for constructive criticism, I don't want to get into any bad habits from day 1!

Re: First step into photography!

Thanks! Just uploaded the photo's I have in my Flickr account to here is it possible to have a Flickr album that updates when I add a new photo to Flickr, or is that the thing of dreams?

Just realised, this might be a good place to ask seeing as how its a photography forum lol Is a Canon 50mm F1.8 II Lens worth getting to play around with? Spotted one second hand in mint condition for 50 but I'm still finding out a lot about the whole subject area! Seems to be a lens that everyone loves it for bokeh.
