How do you work with Git-Flow Branches?

I'm confused about branches and new to Git. Do you create a develop, release, hotfix, etc. branch from the Remote Origin Master? Or from your checked out Working Copy? Is the develop branch the default from checking out the master to your local computer?

It is necessary to understand what Git is and how it works before you can use it successfully. git-scm.com/book/en/v2 - check out sections 1.1-1.3 and chapters 2 and 3.

Something that makes Git different from older versioning systems is that your computer is a repository, not just a working copy checked out from a central repository.
