    Default Newbie here looking for help

    Hi, i'm interested in car photography (panning shots, motion blurring) and i want to buy a DSLR to take photos and experiment. can any seniors here recommend something thats good to start out with and how to adjust the camera settings to suit the type of images i want? im also working on a budget so try to factor that in as well

    1. you need a tripod for motion blur
    2. any camera that have shutter priority mode
    3. you may need a monopod for panning

    lastly read the user manual of the camera that you buy
    go to the library and borrow some books

    don't expect to get good results on your first take, it takes practice to get it right
    question yourself on what went wrong and how do i correct it.
    join photo outings and learn from other like minded people

    lastly enjoy yourself while shooting

    then go to the "lastly" tips ortega just gave first. I suggest reading up on the photography for newbies guide in the sticky as well. hope this helps.
