View Full Version : Yet another newbie :)

01-18-2012, 12:35 PM

I'm very new to all this and feel a little like a poor cousin as I don't have anything like a DSLR - I recently purchased a Samsung WB700 compact, though it does have full manual controls as well as smart-point-and-shoot functions. But I hope that I can still learn some techniques and hints/tips and produce some pictures that aren't too awful!

I live in Somerset in the UK. I have dabbled now and then with photos and then given up because they were blurred/rubbish etc. But I have decided that if I don't try then I will never improve and at least it won't cost me £millions in wasted film development now that it's (mostly) digital.

Looking forward to learning lots on here and (possibly) posting some of my not-totally-horrendous pictures at some point.

So Hi!

Welcome to the forum! Don't worry about which camera you are using... my first digital camera was a 2 megapixel Kodak point and shoot. I have printed photos from that camera on my wall to this day. The photographer is the key...gear just makes it easier to do what you want.
