When you hit into technical terms you don't get, look 'em up, and if that doesn't work, ask away here
Someone once asked me, a director, where I "learned to light," or something to that effect, and I said "the subway." because I just look at people's faces and how the light moving back and forth across them changes the way they "feel," to me... though truthfully, I do more of that at coffee shops, but the anecdote stands me thinks.

I also learned by reading back issues of "American Cinematographer" magazine, going all the way back to the 1920's, and I re-read the 1970's issues several times over.
There's no shortcut: you read, go to art museums, watch movies, and shoot stuff, and repeat over and over again for the rest of your life. That's it!
