I learned so much more about the fundamentals of digital cameras. This is enough for me to learn the basics — how to choose a good camera, what I should do before I take a picture, the do’s and dont’s for maintaining my camera, and so forth. And this is a very important stage before I go to the next level of learning basic photography.
