Photothunk's Blog Posts for Beginners
This isn't anything like a complete education. I won't tell you how to use your camera, I won't tell you how to pep up your snaps, and I won't give you three simple rules for anything. I might help point you in a direction that will make you a better photographer, however.
Good luck, and welcome!
