just got myself a half decent camera,
is there a website which i could have a read up on just to get some basics of photography and which settings should be used in certain enviroments.

This is a good one. Not sure if you have a SLR, but it could prove useful even if you haven't. :)

I would really reccomend going on a one day course. I purchased a new dslr a couple of months back and wanted to get off the auto settings and start using the camera to its full potiential. I googled a search for courses in my area and you will be surprised what you find, did a one day session for 75 there were 8 of us with 1 tutor and we spend a full day including lunch taking pictures on the various setting.Best money i have ever spend and the quality of my pictures improved immediately :)

yeah that doesnt sound like such a bad idea, as i said its only a half decent camera so may wait until ive got myself a top of the range one to make it worthwhile

Expensive cameras don't mean you'll start taking magical pictures ;-) best bet is to get out there and play, should not take long to figure out. Also good books on amazon about exsposure.

Very true, a quicker path to magical pictures is quality lenses over camera bodies, but again no substitute for technique.
