Taking Photos

Im a keen photographer in the fact I like to take photos the problem I have is keeping interested enough to read the books and tutorials on my camera. Im more of a trial and error person rather than using the manual for more than holding a door open. But I was hunting around on blogs today and came across this link that I thought others would find useful. Im starting to get a bit frustrated on the lack of knowledge I have on my camera so starting to leaf through books and browse the net. Im hoping I can start to get the photos I want rather than the holiday type snaps I keep producing.. I have a nice camera I spent a lot of money on so will have to start learning to use it properly otherwise I should have just bought a £5.00 disposable.
