I highly recommend "The Nikon School."  It is a one day program that travels
from city to city giving a very good overview of photographic technique.
They also give you a great reference book, pocket size, with all sorts of
tables for photographic situations -- such as night photography.  There are
ads in photo magazines, such as "Outdoor Photographer" which give schedules;
I imagine Nikon's website also has the info.

Check it out.

I have no excuse for my budding Leicaholism. I don't know how to
take pictures, but I've now acquired in rapid succession 2 new M6
TTLs (.58 and .85), 1 used M4-2 (btw from the notorious Canadian
retail shop of the notorious zoom lens episode -- they were quite
nice, I thought, and gave me an excellent price on an excellent
body), 6 Leica lenses and 1 Voigtlander lens.


No, today I had to buy a Hassleblad 501CM w/ 80 CFE. (I know this
is more gear than I'll learn how to use properly in years, but I've
always wanted to take interesting pictures and, in part, I decided to
spend some money to take my mind off losing a fortune in the stock

Anyhow, I can't find resources for Hassleblad anything like the
fantastic resources for Leica on the web. Does anybody have any
suggested links, please?

Secondly, and more or less unrelated, can anybody give me links
and/or titles of reference books or pamphlets to buy, for exposure
tables for nighttime photography? I got two shots out of a roll to
come out right the other night, by luck I think.



P.S. I may even post some snaps, if I can figure out how photonet
