Basically here is my question. I am pursuing photography/art for my career. I have a good foundation I feel and am doing well so far with it but my main hold up is I dont really understand the terms/features and being that I am not in college I havent really have any opportunities to take a course on it. Most of the fellow photogrpahers I know use cannon and I use Nikon so it doesnt really work to ask them becaue they dont understand my camera and I dont understan theirs. I am not so good at reading things and understanding them so much as seeing them done and understanding on a much higher level. I come in this board a lot and i try to make sense of things and it just goes right over my head. So my question is where did you learn these things and which settings to use etc. I ordered a book today and I am hoping that will help but I really feel like I am going to need something more concrete. Any help would be appreciated. thanks.
