Just starting out with DSLR. I have been lurking for a little while and especially enjoyed the Alternative Viewpoint assignment. I felt intimidated by the talent displayed in the entries, but I figure everyone started out like me. Looking forward to learning.

You figured correctly! Everyone sucks at first. :) There's an old saying that in order to get good at something you have to make 10,000 mistakes first so get out there and start making mistakes! :)

Welcome to the forum and I'm glad you are joining in the conversation. Time to post an image or two. If you are really brave throw one in the critiques section and we'll see if we can help out.

Second- Iggy is right on.

Third- look through some of my posts and you will not be intimidated :D

Fourth - the most important question to answer is: Are you having fun? (If yes, all else is a bonus)
