Some more fun ideas for a photo a day from Photojojo here ... not entirely sure I could do a self portrait a day though!
iBecks on UKScrappers (I don't think she's around much any more) posted THIS really helpful DSLR guide - great tips in here if you're just starting out with a DSLR!
The Morgue File (don't be put off by the name!) is a great resource for learning about photography. There's a whole course waiting for you right there ... mainly geared to DSLRs, but I'm sure a compact camera user would pick up some fantastic tips too!
2Peas in a Bucket ran a free 12 week photography course a few years back - aimed at beginner photographers using all types of cameras. CLICK HERE for the 2Peas Photography home page, then search '2008' and submit - the lessons are right at the bottom. There doesn't seem to be an easy way to link to these - sorry about that!
