Best website ever when you're just starting out. And the first thing you should read is the exposure triangle and learn how to shoot in manual.
I also recommend reading "Understanding Exposure". It's a really good book. Then after that, practice, have fun and be creative. Shoot what you like, not what everyone else is doing.
When you fall you always need to make sure you land in your afterbang position for maximum steeze - Traveling Circus
