    hello world

    I am going to say something that will offend many

    start by reading your manual
    or the EOS 70D magazine guidebook if you have it

    Welcome to ClubSNAP,

    to learn about photography, you need to know the theory(knowledge), you need the operation manual to know how to use the tools, and you also need a lot of practise with hands on.

    so beside the instruction manual, do check out the outing and gathering section to join some outings, at the mean time, pick up some basic photography books from your near by National Library branches and start reading,

    That is why the magazine guide book is more useful.

    I was fortunate to be the recipient of one such magazine early in my photo journey

    Good day Martin, do look at our outing sessions and signed up for some. There are lots of great photographers there and they can help you with your questions. I learned alot from these folks and most of them are very patient and friendly.

    At the meantime, do read up your manual and if you don't have one, you can easily download a copy from the web. Many of the questions that most newbies had are explained in the manual.

    Happy shooting
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    Warm welcome, Martin. I do believe the resources suggested by many here is a good point to start. Above all, most importantly is enjoy what you shoot!

    Welcome Martin. The best way to learn is to keep shooting with your camera ��

    Keep shooting and join some outings perhaps. There's a section for it called Gatherings and Outings.
