Welcome! Much of shooting is about reading and viewing photos. Keep shooting! :)

I think u should get a book to read up first. Else after some time u might get frustrated as u're unsure of how to get what u want.

Or u can consider signing up for some introductory courses. It helps a lot in understanding too.

Thanks for the warm welcome, lol ok i have digi cam and recently bought an entry level dslr a Canon EOS 1000D shooting with tamron 18-200 lense . . been learning myself doing test shots and also shooting . . found out that the exposure,aperture and shutter speeds are hard to manage. I will need multiple shots to end up with a acceptable one, hard to adjust but will try my best to learn. Hmm books ? I prefer people with more knowledge to share with me coz reading makes me sleepy haha =D will try to make time for outings to learn more ! :)

Exposure, aperture and shutter speed will be second nature to you if you keep shooting.

Books are a good starting point. But join outings to have others guide you as you shoot.

zzz can't post pic . . hmm i'll try to figure out =/
You cannot post the flickr link. You need to right click on your image and copy URL of the image itself.

Anyway, saw the pics. You need to read up on your basics. Esp composition.
