Sigh - there's my ignorance carrying me only so far again.
Thanks for the note and the book suggestion, 2F/2F.
Just casting about for a solution to this problem.
Thanks again for all of the help.
I wouldn't be down on yourself about it! There is nothing wrong with ignorance; the word carries a bad connotation, but IMO it is not a bad thing in and of itself. One does not learn much without it, the way I see it. I would guess that most photographers learn from other photographers correcting their mistakes more than they learn from books. I certainly did. But a book is a good starting place to be exposed to some basics if you cannot get into some sort of local class.
