    Hi there HuA

    Mentoring on the subject of photography, people might not mind. But I think it is a basic responsibility for a camera owner to get to know the camera first by reading the manual. Learn at least how to navigate through the menus and adjust basic things like aperture, shutter speed, iso, white balance. Once again, read the manual first. Then fiddle around and do some test shots using different settings.

    Hey Hi Hua welcome to Clubsnap! You may want to try improve your composition and angles first by shooting a lot, while practicing on the settings, etc. D80 is a fairly simple system to master, goodluck.

    no problem once you're more or less versed with the camera controls, you perhaps can see what basic rules of photography to read up on, things the 1/focal length rule, sunny 16, guidelines on composition etc. once you feel comfortable enough, you might try posting on the critique thread for people to dissect your photo and when you do so, keep an open mind to the criticism and take it constructively coz at times, people can be brutally honest.

    enjoy your camera and happy snapping!
