G-Day all,

Just got my camera and lens and need to learn as much as i can in under 3 weeks before I go overseas. I was going to wait another month till i go to cambo/thailand and aunty got me a ticket to bosnia just this week (bday present).

So got me self a 550d, tamron 17-50vc, tamron 10-24 and tokina fisheye 10-17. Didn't get any long zoom lens more leaning towards landscape/architecture shots.

I've been reading as much as I can but don't think i've soaked enough in. So what are some good online reading materials for night photography and panos. Also what do I look for in taking a photo of say a bridge, building, landscape....hows the best way of capturing it (am i making any sense?)

If you need to know any other specifics from my side please ask.

Cheers guys, Arnie.

Hi Arnie.. At the top of every Forum there is heaps of INFO and tips on How to.
Look them up on the Panorama and Night/Astro Forums

yeah I've checked them out and read a new other sites but just after something more indepth and haven't found it hoping someone here has some good sites.

I'm going out to brissy tonight with a mate (if all goes to plan) trying out some basic settings and working off that. If i do i'll put some pics up for Cc.

There are some great threads on AP for both panoramas and night. I would print, write them down and keep them with you....well if you are anything like me and forget some things!!
Google search is good too.
