What is F-stop good for? What is EV good for? What is shutter speed and aperture good for? Heck, just point and shoot, the camera does the rest.

Amazing how many people fight learning the simplest things about their hobby. Either you understand your craft, or you don't One things for sure, the people that argue and deny it tend to submit the fewest photos . . .

Also learn some history of the craft, wherever, your final destination may be. It's kinda neat to see where you came from.

BTW, I'm trying to get the senior member status wait, I'm not suppose to be a member of any club that will have me as a member. Never mind

And if anyone is fighting (friendly chat is my preference), it's about what to learn; not what is the simplest, IMHO.

1. It can be a useful tool if you can benefit from it. Outside of DPR, it plays a useful but very minor role for most photographers.

2. You can make a hobby out of it by discussing or bickering about it, reading, thinking, studying, and writing about it.

3. You can kill some time by reading very entertaining internet threads about it.

4. You can join a cult to either extol or denounce it's virtues, on DPR anyway.

5. You could write a PhD thesis about the personalities of us who post on internet threads about it.
