Hi, my name is Seth and I live in Michigan. I am going to college and I hope to be an architect. I first fell in love with photography about three years ago when I took two photography classes in High School. Since then, I have taken photos in my free time, although I don't get much when I am in school. Currently, I am trying to find ways of taking pictures of buildings and cities. I don't consider myself a professional, but I would like to be a photographer as a side job one day. I really want to learn more about photography, so if anyone is reading, I would gladly appreciate it if other members could recommend me some websites or books that I can look into. Also, if any of you live in Michigan, I am interested in finding a possible photography mentor. If not, I could try to be a mentor--although as I said before--at the moment I am not a VERY experienced photographer.

Welcome! This is a great place for learning and sharing!

For the non-technical side of photography you might find Michael Freeman's books useful, The Photographer's Eye and The Photographer's Mind.

For more tutorial style information have a look at Cambridge in Colour - Photography Tutorials & Learning Community and The Luminous Landscape

There is also lots of information to find here on the forums. It's just a matter of finding or starting some good threads
