There's a whole lot of good stuff for people like yourself to read in this thread. But if you're as green as you claim, I'd bet you'd fall asleep before you finish page 1. And count yourself lucky for living in the digital age where you can take as many photos as you want and delete those you don't like without costing you a single dime unlike film. My advice for you is to reach deep into your pocket and go buy a decent camera & start shooting. Then come back and read more to understand.
Don't bother yourself too much about techniques at this point of time. The main thing to do is have fun doing it and learn from your mistakes.
hmmm there is alot of subject my friend for you to shoot.. Its all about what you see and what of your thoughts thats where u begin to click your shutter.. Remember to have a good composition to the pictures..
Every Picture tells a story.. We all photographers are the story tellers on every details and impact.. To you, your family, friends or to the community..
read widely from books, internet, join discussion groups, meet up fellow photographers or join a group of photographers to go for photoshoot together.. exchange pointers.. plus go to shop to try out yr cam first before buying.. eg tk photo Richard , get some1 who is patient to let try out the cam n lens before making yr purchases.. dun be pressure by salesman~~ cheers..
Hi...hi, welcome to the big family. As recommended by the freindly bros here, do read up more on photography first. Now before you consider jumping into the DSLR world, do consider the things you have to invest in first. Lenses, filters, dry cabinets are necessities and they do not come cheap. Just stick to what you have first and try polishing up your photography skills and start saving before considering jumping onto teh bandwagon.
As for what to shoot, you can try street, architectures, people or even macros. Well, we can always meet up to learn from each other if you want. Just sent me a PM. I'm just a newbie learning the art of photography too.
