Hi, I'm a total newb (but not an idiot) and I'm looking for a reference that will provide a basic groundwork to digital photography. I'm looking at the Scott Kelby books and the "for dummies" books. How did you all get to be the great photogs you are? I know, I know, get out there and shoot and learn in the field. I plan on doing that. But I'd like a desktop reference as well. I appreciate your help. Thanks.
