Resources for new photographers
I bought my entry-level DSLR in June of 2018. It took me several months to figure out the basics of my camera, but once I did, I began living and breathing photography. I work out of town so I spent my commutes listening to photography podcasts. On my days off, I read photography books and watched photography tutorials and put what I was learning into practice by shooting around my apartment— on my dogs, on my husband, on myself, whatever.
If you’re a new or learning photographer and you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed, I have some resources to share that helped me with my own journey. As you’ll notice, MOST of it is from the “So You Want to be a Photographer” podcast— it’s hands-down given me the most inspiration & help.

Exposure & Beginning photography
For Dummies books - If you can, find a For Dummies book for your camera. I was floundering because I didn’t understand the basics of exposure or how different dials on my camera controlled exposure. The For Dummies book don’t actually treat you like a dummy, by the way.
