Very green Newbie here

Hi all,

I have been lurking for a couple of days and enjoy the forum and have learnt a fair bit already.

I am a complete novice and just learning about some very basic stuff by tinkering with the settings on my little Coolpix. As this has brought some interesting results already I have decided to get into the hobby a bit more.

The next step for me is to learn a bit more about photography in general from a technial point of view and then invest in an entry level Digital SLR.. not decided on the Nikon/Cannon debate yet although I am sure you will all be keen to give me your perspective on that one . I have always had Nikon compacts so far so you can see which way I lean already.

Any way, I hope you can put up with the occasional dumb question when I can't google a clear answers for myself.

Will stick up some of my photo's for you to have a look at. And laugh at. :lol:

Cheers,
James.

Hello James, glad you stepped out of the shadows and chose to register.

If you would like one of our free galleries then just drop EosD a private message and he will sort it for you as soon as he gets a minute.

In the mean time, welcome aboard, pull up a chair and enjoy the friendly banter. Oh and those questions...we can help there as well

Yeah, I'm here too. Mainly been lurking though.....

I heartily recommend Nikon btw, though the Canon E350D and E20D are supposed to be very very good. Got a D70 myself and love it. New Konica Minolta looks interesting too with Antishake built into the Camera body.....

Nice site BTW

Hi, another invader from Wigwam here :icon_cool

TBH i fall into the novice category and generally at best i mess around with an EOS10D. I quite like trying to take astro shots, the moon, saturn etc using a telescope but they are fairly modest.

Just a word of warning though, look after your smilies, Jampal has been know to aquire them and i see you may have some that may attract his attention :naughty:

This is the thread thats running on wigwam that contains some of our efforts

http://www.hifiwigwam.com/forum23/929.html

Cheers
