    Would it be possible for all the basics to be put on here, for new comers to photography to help them understand Focal Lengths / F stops, Shutter speed and ISO etc

    There are excellent outlines of ‘The Basics’ here:

    http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/learn-photography-concepts.htm

    The guy who runs the site, Sean McHugh, is very knowledgeable and gives clear, well-illustrated explanations.

    The very first section, “Basics: How your camera works” covers pretty much everything a beginner might want to know about, and has clear explanations and diagrams. The particular topics you mention about the ‘exposure triangle’ (aperture, shutter speed, ISO) are covered in the section on “Understanding Camera Exposure: Aperture, ISO & Shutter Speed“.

    Do you think this material will cover what’s needed, Paul?

    There is a great book by Brian Peterson called Understanding Exposure. I recommend this highly.
