    You just popped the loaded question of the day. Try Ansel Adams' "The Negative".
    Thank you.

    Welcome. Take it slow and easy; give yourself the opportunity to learn from lots of mistakes.

    When it comes to books, visit your local public library. Borrow or sit there and read all they have. Take notes on techniques that interest you. In the meanwhile SHOOT whatever interess you. Keep a note pad and record as much as you remember. Compare your notes with what you've shot. If you like the results , do it some more. If unliked, dont do it again. The only book I'd recomend is the National Geographic field guide for B&W photography. Oh yeah-- Welcome from the land of the endless mountains of north central Pennsylvania.

    Welcome James from California. The most important piece of advise has already been offered by AnscoJohn. HAVE FUN! If it's not fun there's no reason to do it.
    Shoot lots of film. Film is cheap.
    By all means look at the work of others. When you see images that you (not others) find excellent, ask yourself what makes it so.
    Most of all,
    ENJOY,

    Larry

    Heya from Denver. Actually, I spend a lot of my time in Fayetteville, Arkansas. I was there in February recording with Earl Cate and a whole cast of characters.

    Hi James and welcome from Bruxelles Belgium - It's so obvious but a good start would be to read a lot. Books about the technical aspects, books about great photographers and then go out and give it a start. First take pictures of what you like most. If you're interested in sports then take pictures of that. A lot. The more the better. Seek frank opinions about your production. Don't hesitate to break the rules by a different approach. For instance, use a wideangle to shoot sports, use a telelens for landcape. I find that human interest brings good pictures.
