Or, for that matter, well-regarded online beginner's guides?
I've just recently become interested, and I'm primarily looking for what initial mistakes to avoid, technique basics, etc....
Thanks as always,
The best one I've found, because the writer made it interesting, is this:
John Shaw's Closeups in Nature.
Amphoto - an imprint of Watson-Guptill Publictions New York.
ISBN 0-8174-4052-6 (pbk.)
Picked up quite a lot from that book.
