I bought this Canon T4i kit today and am trying to learn more about photography. Can anyone recommend a good website to start learning the basics and/or a good book for beginners?

Understanding Exposure is a great book, it was a game changer for me. After you know what exposure is, the rest is recognizing what the difference is between a photo and a snap shot. Composition, subject, the creative process.

The camera really doesn't matter for that part.

Go see Mike Gallant at Callbecks back counter, he does a beginners photography course. Comments I have heard people get a lot out of it.

Hoping to take one from him in the spring if everything goes as planned.

Never hold your farts in. They travel to your brain and that's where shitty ideas come from.

I was kinda thinking you might be mixing them up. They both started the Red Sands Photography Club so I am sure people mix them up all the time.

I couldn't find anything on Holland College's website but that was something I was going to look at in the spring/summer hopefully.

Holland College decided to drop the bootcamp. I do it privately now. Fire me a note if anyone is interested; chris@spinphoto.ca

I have the same camera and I found David Bushes T4i book to be a great resource.
Amazon

Image
There is also a more simplified field guide and both books are available in ebook version from anywhere you buy ebooks for much less. I also got the ebook guide for use on my tablet.
Also I recomend the 40mm stm lens. It's great for video as the auto focus is completely inaudible. It goes on sale at amazon for $159 from time to time and can be price matched to that price at future shop.

You might want to consider the t5i though at $679 it comes with the 18-55 kit stm lens. The only real difference of merit imo between the 4i and 5i. If your 4i came with the 18-55 stm as a select few do then that's great.
If you bought this at FS then get it PMed to this price as even on sale at fs they want too much money for it. I have had no problems getting them to pm with amazon.

Mine came with the 18-55mm and 40mm lens.

Both stm? if so sounds sweet. You'll like them for video.
At any rate buy one of busch's books on the 4i you won't regret it.
There are a few pretty good you tube channels on photography as well.

The 40mm is STM. The 18-55 is an IS lens.
