Learning to Draw from a Photograph

"Pen and Ink Drawing Demonstration by Mike Budden"
Drawing and Sketching: Art Instruction For Beginners (March 6, 2008)

"How to draw: Using a photograph.

HB Pencil.
Putty Rubber.
Layout paper.
Acid free cartridge paper.
Viewfinder grid.
Magnifying glass.
Rotring Isograph pens; .1mm, .25mm and .35mm.
Black India ink.
A piece of lint free cloth - to wipe your pens on.
Tissues, for resting your hand upon - fingers leave greasy marks on the paper and the ink won’t take kindly to it.

"Gillott Mapping pens can also be used (dip pens) for fine detail work."

Looks like a pretty good how-2, and one that's appropriate for beginners. Provided the beginner knows what Rotring Isograph pens and Gillott Mapping pens are.

Of course these days, a quick search, like Google's Rotring Isograph pens, lets people learn new terms pretty easily.
