    Wink Hello everyone

    Hi, I'm a newbie who have no experience in cameras and photography previously. I just got a KM DSLR camera and hope to start taking some nice pictures. So brothers and sisters, please help and guide me along if i need your help. Please also bear with me and extend your great patience on my 'not so intelligent questions'.

    Thanks in advance. Cheers

    First shoot as much as you can, then go library and read as much as you can. All questions are valid in my opinion but be warned that some basic questions like "what is apperture?" or "what is shutterspeed?" are in the manual and most photography books and you will be scolded left and right if you do not do your homework. Having said that, hello and welcome.

    Thank you dawgbyte77. I'll start shooting and try to look up for information before asking. Don't want to get scolded and hammered left and right. Ha....ha.

    Welcome to CS and welcome fellow Minoltian. Go to libary borrow some books and learn some basics than go out and shoot. There's no substitute for practice.

    welcome to CS.

    The hammering is only in words form. wont hurt at all, its the BBB virus here that will hurt you more. We learn and start from somewhere and CS is a good place to start. Shoot and compare to those taken by the pro here (I'm not one) and ask yourself why is there a difference. Then post and ask for comments and critics. A photo is like art, different people see it differently.

    sometimes readings.. are a bunch of words....
    so difficult to understand..

    and if explained by an ordinary everyday user.
    it will be much easier to absorb
