Welcome Sam ! Your entrance was very similar to mine (after lurking for a while), and most of my gear is from the second hand market too .
Looking forward to your work, and I hope you enjoy it here as much as I do.

Welcome from me aswell Sam. What sort of boat? (I hope you are going to say a Fisher 37, my absolute favourite in a lifetime of sailing )

Of course there are a squillian YouTubes tutorials and a whole library of books to choose from but I'd suggest you have a look at the YouTube channel, "Photography Online". It started in Jan 20 and publishes an hour programme every month, entirely free, no catch. And I have no connection with them other than an impressed viewer.

I'd start at Jan 20 and work through last year, there is a host of good advice covering all sorts of photography genres. It is as good as any TV programme and is from a Photography training school on the Isle of Skye.

Looking forward to seeing your sailing photos in due course.

Brian

Not a Fisher, but my parents had a Colvic 33 which is vaguely similar.
Thanks for the link to photography online, they're brilliant! I quite like being taught in a Scottish accent.
