Hello there guys and gals. I am new to the forum and just wanted to introduce myself. I've been into photography for about 6 months on and off as a hobby and am wanting to get into it seriously pretty soon. Right now I am using a Panasonic dmc-fz5 and Im getting kind of frustrated with it. I cant seem to get on "film" what I have pictured in my mind on almost every shot. I don't know if this is the camera or me?! I used to be able to at least take pictures like the two or three posted here. Now all my pictures suck, to be blunt. Any advice? I know its kind of a general question...but thats the best I can describe it. Pictures now have no depth, and no character/personality. Is it time to invest in a SLR?? Comments and Criticism welcome on the pics. Let me have it...i love to learn.
