36 lessons in photography
I've put up a Flickr set with 36 photos that I've selected, and written a small paragraph or two under each photo explaining what's going on, or a lesson I learned, or just how that photo happened. I hope to expand it as time goes on, and I invite critique and questions.

This is really neat! I've been wanting to get into photography for a while, and your photos and commentary are really interesting and informative. Thanks!

This is great. Even just having the words to understand what you're doing [even if I don't understand them all] can lead to better Googling. I reallylove knowing how people do this sort of thing.

What words didn't you understand? maybe I can rework that part to be clearer.

Well just ideas like using filters and masking and whatnot. I only sort of know what they are, but now that I know what the words are I can look them up.

For the beginners among us, it'd also be really nice to know what your camera settings were. As in, why that particular film speed? Why that aperture?

On each Flickr page, if you click on the camera model in the upper right hand side, it should give you all the related EXIF data, which should tell you what you need to know, except in the case of slides or black-and-white negatives I either scanned of copied with a copier rig.
