I have just joined the club and started to read up on photography. In fact, I bought the 'Understanding Digital Photography' by Byan Peterson based on the recommendation by the members here. Just wanted to startup slow and steady and build my basic foundation.
I was really amazed by the pics taken by some of the members; seemed not only the events, people etc are captured, the 'mood' and 'feeling' are in the pics as well. The pics seem to be 'communicating' with the viewers; that's exactly the 'thing' to made me shout 'wow' and which inspired me to learn the skill.
So far, I owned no system yet; jus a basic Panasonic FX8. As time go by, hoping to pick up the skill here.
