I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction on learning the technicalities for SLR cameras. I really want to understand the ins and outs of ISO and aperture. Shutter speed feels like a no brainer. But no matter how many articles or books I read I just can't make sense of aperture.
Is there anything you know of that I can read or watch that explains aperture and ISO so even a child could get it?
How did you learn best? What is step 1 on the journey to being a good amateur/hobby photographer? (I don't plan to be a professional, I just want to enjoy my own pictures better.) What did you find was the toughest thing to learn/overcome?
I did much better with physical books than I did with the internet. The "for Dummies" series really helped and they usually have one specifically for your camera.
You tube is a great resource. There are a lot of other ones I can think of but I am not sure that they explain the basics as you would need them. I didn't have one place that I always went for answers, I went everywhere on the internet. Sometimes Wikipedia is good for definitions and basics.
