Try popping to you local magazine store and take a look at Practical Photography or look here Practical Photography - December 2010 | Photo Answers (http://www.photoanswers.co.uk/Photography-Magazines/Practical-Photography-Magazine/Practical-Photography---December-2010/).

Maybe a book would be a bit better as it would take you through things, magazines will have features rather than a natural progression. I like Scott Kelby and I have a couple of his books. Amazon has a 3 volume set for around 20

Something that really helped me was looking through Flickr at photos I liked and then going out and trying to re-create the effect. If you study a photo you can usually tell how they achieved that effect, whether it was a blurred background or a certain perspective, trying to re-create it really helps you learn :yes:
