Have a look at the free tutorials here: https://www.cambridgeincolour.com/

They will give you a good grounding in the basics (and you can safely ignore anyone who cries out that they are fundamentally mistaken).

That site is full of fundamental errors. That's a fact. Whether he can 'safely ignore' that fact or not depends on how much he wants to be mistaken in the future.

Sorry, Bob, but that's where we will continue to disagree. I think that it is better to get started with an easy to understand and good enough tutorial, and refine later. You don't. OK?

That's where you're wrong. I strongly agree that it's good to get started with an easy to understand and good enough tutorial and refine later.

All I said is that site is full of fundamental errors. It contains absolutely basic errors about the technical side of photography, which, for a site devoted to teaching people the technical side of photography, is unforgivable.

Ha, seems a can of worms has opened up here....

I would much rather learn things as they are than have to relearn everything at a later date because things were 'simplified' so far that they became untrue. I'd be more comfortable struggling along with something that's too advanced for me, and pushing myself, than doing that (although there are enough accurate beginners' tutorials out there that I know that won't be necessary). Cheers for the warning.
