Hi Everyone! I'm new to the forum, new to photography. This seems like a great community here, and i'm glad to be a part of it! My interest in photography started 8 months ago when I got married. Meeting with our wedding photographer and seeing his work was amazing. Then going on our honeymoon, all we had was a point-and-shoot camera. We weren't too satisfied with the pictures we took, especially in the night time. Soo, recently for my birthday, I bought myself a digital slr. I dont know anything about photography beyond the point-and-shoot. I have started to do a lot of reading, and my wedding photographer has given me tips...most of which goes over my head. The best so far has been just taking the camera out and trying different things. I dont know technically what I am doing, but i've figured out that if i turn the dial one way, the shutter stays open longer, and if its too dark, I turn it one more tick, and the picture is a bit brighter. The great thing about digital is that i can keep ticking until i get the picture the way i like it. Anyway, its been a fun learning experience, and there is so much to learn. Slowly but surely. Here is a picture I took the other night. comments (good/bad) are welcome.
