The primary thing i want to learn right now is all the different shooting styles and shooting angles, Does anyone know a place where i can find out more about them? Is there a place on the web for n00b filmmakers like me to get started?
Any information would help, Thank you.

Setting Up Your Shots by Jeremy Vineyard
It gives story board style examples of shots and movies where you can see the actual technique in use. It's extremely basic but easy to thumb through for a nice overview.
An older book but still a classic:
The Five C's of Cinematography by Joseph Mascelli
Covers Camera angles, Continuity, Cutting, Close-Ups, and Composition.
And HIGHLY RECOMMENDED:
Understanding Movies by Louis Giannetti
It's a Prentice Hall film school text book loaded with great info.
