    Books / Guides / Reading Materials

    What articles should I read regarding photography?
    -Please read your camera manuals first. A wealth of information is within those pages. If your camera didn't come with one, head over to the manufacturer's website and search for it there.

    And of course, copies of the Digital Photographer Philippines' magazine.

    What photography books should I read?
    -Scott Kelby's Digital Photography book Volumes 1 to 3 are great references.

    Gears / Accessories

    Should I buy a Canon or a Nikon?
    -I don't think one brand is greater than the other. All brands have pros and cons. It's just a matter of preference. An advice I got from a friend: "If your friends or family shoot Canon, buy Canon. If they shoot Nikon, buy Nikon. That way, you get tips from them and can also borrow and use their gear."

    After buying a camera body with lens, what else should I invest on?
    -A sturdy tripod.

    Welcome to DPP.

    I would like to suggest that you read your camera's manual first.

    Having a thorough understanding of the capabilities and limitations of your camera will help you better in learning the tutorials, IMHO.

    Cheers!
