    hi fellow canon user. welcome to clubsnap

    perhaps you can go to various place of interests to shoot else you can actually volunteer to photograph your school events.

    cheers!

    Try everything - landscapes, abstract, macro, world of nature, portraits etc.

    Eventually you'll end up with something that you like.

    Kit lens is good enough. My suggestion is to just go on a walk about trip with another photographer buddy and shoot to your heart's content.

    After awhile you'll find yourself shooting one area more than others like landscapes or macro.

    From there on, you can start investing in specialised lenses like 100mm macro, 17-40mm etc.

    Happy shooting

    Hey, welcome to ClubSnap =)

    You've got a great DSLR to start with, keep snapping away at everything =)

    Just take a weekend off and walk around your house, your school, or go to a garden / park / zoo and snap pics of things you find interesting.

    After a few months, you'll probably start to see a trend in your shooting subjects. That's when you probably should decide if a new lens would help you, and go for it =)

    But always remember-- it's the photographer, not the camera, that makes great photographs!!

    Have a great stay here at CS.

    Cheers~

    Hi,

    Welcome to this hobby.

    Perhaps you can try shooting still life and abstract, since most of the things in your house can be your subject.
    Let's get rolling :)

    hi canon user from a nikon user. just shoot and take photos. it's digital so you can learn as you go.

    first advise, shoot to please yourself. nevermind the critics.

    hi! u got some nice pics in your shoots keep shooting and enjoying this great hobby!

    just a note... take note of the white balance when it comes to shooting humans as subjects.
    A picture tells a thousand words... make yours speak a million!

    It may be referring to the pics you took of my sister.

    why not try shooting ordinary everyday subjects in unusual perpectives / composition / lighting? u r only limited by your imagination and creativity!

    hey, welcome canonian.
    for a start, i always try shooting still objects or at least not erratically moving objects
    So for me, portrait or landscape first, and you can get nice images with kit lens also.

    Bringing your DSLR everywhere you go (whenever you get that chance) is always a good idea. Street and candids is the most pleasurable form of photography (to me personally). Just enjoy the thrill of taking what you see. The results can be quite surprising.
