I used to use PanF, HP4, FP4,Kodachrome and Kodacolor Gold LOL

Added to some microfine B&W developer and a drop of Amfix.

Still have the kit in my loft, sadly now slowly rotting away into oblivian

Hey Bigolbear, there are no 'dumb questions', only questions you don't know the answer to and EVERY ONE OF US has got plenty of those so you just ask away as much as you like. Pixalo is full of friendly and helpful enthusiasts who will be more than happy to help whenever they can.

Welcome to the best Photography Forum on the net

Cheers,
Rob

Don't worry about asking questions

There are loads of books out there, but not in a position to recommend any. Have you tried your local library?

Re: Newbi +New cannon

Thanks for that Dabhand16,

looking at some of the fantastic photographs on here i think i need to read , or it's going to be all the equipment NO IDEA . I did get a Copy of Photo plus today which has given me a couple of pointers , but the mag seems more interested in Photo shop than in photography . I have a copy of photoshop and that i can use it's talking good photographs in the first-place I'm finding tricky .

Re: Newbi +New cannon

Rather than buying a book or four, it might be worth subscribing to a magazine. These publications usually have a variety of articles and often have tutorials on editing as well as tips on shooting.

Buy two or three to see which ones you like and take out a subscription. Most will give you a free gift if you subscribe.

I used to have Digital Photo for about 18 months before it started to become repetitive, and when I last looked they were giving a Lowepro Mini Trekker AW with an 18 month subscription. Every month this magazine had tutorials on Photoshop, shooting techniques, projects etc. and i found it quite useful.

Hi, bigolbear, try " How Digital Photography Works "by Ron White, and " Digital Photography For Dummies " by Julie Adair King ; local libraries have copies.
