... I have a cannon P&S and want to upgrade to a DSLR. Befor I get in to the Which Camera Thing, have a few questions.
How should I begin with? - buy a DSLR and then learn photography basics or Learn basic and then buy camera?
Also what are the things that I must start learning??
+1 to arindandas.Pushkark, here are my thoughts.
You might as well start with buying a DSLR and learning on the job. You *will* make rookie mistakes, but who doesn't? Learn from your mistakes. Henry has some excellent tutorials here, read through them. Make sure you understand how your camera works and functions. Have an understanding of exposure, metering, shooting modes, etc. That's it, go out and shoot. Post your shots here (or somewhere else), ask for critique, and improve yourself. This was my roadmap anyway.
The most important tip I can give you: don't be trigger happy. Work out a composition in your mind first and then shoot.
Can you suggest any such site??+1 to arindandas.
Sorry I missed your post.
Photography is in two parts, Art and Science. Art is all about composition whereas science is understanding the camera and post processing.
To understand the camera you'll need to buy one to practice after reading.
To understand composition you'll need to read and implement it in your pictures. Later uploading your pictures for honest critic is the best way to learn. But look for a proper photography site for real critics.
