    Film SLR - cheap and forces you to learn and think about each shot as you can't just delete them or see them in the view finder.

    no books really. Get to know the rule of thirds, and how to work your camera, the rest really can't be taught. have fun.







    get an av btw. I helped you, now help the site.
