My first recommendation would be to find someone experienced with a DSLR local to you, that you can 'buddy up' with and go out on a few relaxed shoots. All the better if it's someone from this forum.

I've found that it's a great way to learn some basic skills.

It's as simple as that. Look up Joe McNally, Karl Taylor, Mark Wallace or Gavin Hoey. All of these have uploaded some fantastic videos and 'how tos'.

Just spend a few minutes watching a video and then go and try it.

I have learned an immense amount from youtube and got some great ideas for projects.

Youtube is indeed a wealth of information.

However in my experience the best way to take better photos is to train your eye to pick out quality scenes or moments. You don't even need a camera with you to so this. I'm always appraising what I see as a photo opportunity
