I am not sure where to begin.

I am as much a beginner in ‘photography’ as they come, and this blog is my husband’s who is currently trying to teach me how to use my camera, which he gave me after one of his upgrades.  Of course I am using the term ‘teaching’ very loosely, he is teaching me, but only as much as I will allow him to, he would be teaching me more…but, you know, husbands and wives…need I say more?  This all brings me to the reason I decided to write this article, the desire to learn photography is an extension of my drawing and painting.  I thought photography would enhance my artistic nature, well it did something more than that…it brought another whole dimension to my art and it awakened a new passion.  Now, would I say I am learning the technical aspects of photography…not so much! (And thank goodness for auto settings!) But everyone learns at their own pace and in their own way.  I am not technically savvy and I don’t care too much for the technical side of things, (or at least I didn’t think I did), but as I am beginning to see some possibility in my pictures I find myself wanting to know more about my camera and what it can do.  I seem to be outgrowing the auto settings and I am looking for something in between his level and the basic auto settings.
