Hi everybody

Hi.
Iīm not only new to this forum, but to photography altogether, and since I am at it, to computers too. So please, be patient with me.
I usually draw or paint my pictures, but because I never work face to face I need good photos as models. I have reached a point where it doesnīt satisfy me anymore to draw other peopleīs pictures, and got myself a Finepix 5600 to be able to make my own model photos. But of course that was easier said than done.
I tried to upload some of my drawings as examples what kind of pictures I draw, but must say that I either failed lamentably to do so, or I simply canīt find the place where they have gone to. - I donīt know which would be more embarrassing
But well, I hope I can learn something about my camera here.
I took the camera back to the shop on several occasions, once to ask how to set the focus to make photos with nicely hazy back- and foreground. But the guy had no idea. He also couldnīt tell me how to get the clouds more defined on a brightly lit sky, or why my macro shots always turn out fuzzy.

About me: Iīm a 39years old single-mom from Germany

Re: Hi everybody

Hello Daises and welcome to the site.

First of all never get embarrassed or become afraid to ask for help here at Pixalo, thats the last thing we ant to happen and not the way we work. You will find that everyone here are willing to help you get the correct answers to any questions you may have, be that site or photography related.

This section of the forum is usually used to say hello and for our members to welcome you so since you have a few valid questions, it is probably better to start a new thread in a different section where each can be answered in detail.

As to uploading pictures so that we can all see, by registering here we have automatically given you some free space in the gallery which can be used just for that purpose. We also have a couple of guides on how to upload pictures to the gallery and also on how to show pictures from the gallery in threads here, both of these can be found at the bottom of the rules section here. Have a look at those and if you are struggling at all or still unclear please ask for help

I hope you enjoy your time at Pixalo
