After a mate from the football recommended joining the Talk Photography Forum, I decided to join in their 'Photo 52' project; Each week one of the organisers pulls a theme from the hat and participants post their take on the theme.
I thought it seemed like a pretty straightforward way to learn more about photography and so far it's definitely working.
