Re: just to say hi

Hi there - welcome

It sounds as though you have a very well brougt up bunch of children.

As to what to take pictures of - that is a very personal choice. Dabhand has a great suggestion re the kids but then again I do not like taking pictures of people.

I would suggest that you look through the various Pixalo galleries and see what appeals to you most. Then if you need more specific help on any techniques ask more questions here. Pixalonians love helping people to get better at photography.

One other thing to remember - No matter how good you may think some photographers are they all started out knowing absolutely nothing.

Re: just to say hi

Welcome Ron! Nice present indeed!
I'd start with 'what do you like'? What are your interests? Can you combine any of them with photography! I general like nature & wildlife, so that's what I tend to photograph the most!
