I've just joined to see if I can learn a bit and start getting the best out of my new camera. I have a canon 400D with std lens. I bought a nifty 50 F1.8 and a sigma 70-200. I'm really enjoying taking pics and every now and then I fluke a good one.

Lately I've just been concentrating on the depth of field and framing the picture correctly and so on. Now I'm starting to look at the shutter speed and white balance and all the other stuff. I'm learning slowly cos I'm studying for a degree whilst working full time and raising 3 kids! I just don't have the spare time I'd like.

I'm on here primarily to search for "how to" tutorials (if there are any that are good, please link me) and such but I'll also enter a competition or two. You never know, I might win a book on photography .

All the best,

sean

Welcome to Pixalo Sean

You have got yourself a decent kit, and with three kids you should not want for subject material.

I also think you are right to just concerntrate on one or two aspects at a time. as you get more proficient, you can combine them.
