    I have always enjoyed taking pictures and just recently, like the past year, have really spent some time doing it for fun. I know NOTHING about photography, in fact i'm thinking about taking a basic course. My family are my subjects, although looking at all of your photographs has inspired me to look elsewhere! I was a labor and delivery nurse and now a stay at home mom to my 3 favorite subjects. I use some kind of fuji digital camera :blulsh2: that I really have never fully read the manual for. Maybe some of you can help me know where to start.... I really love doing black and whites. I think its because I don't really like the color pics I have taken most of the time.

    So here are a few questions...and then a few pics. (noone laugh at me!)

    1. What is a good starter camera if I decide I need to upgrade? Something not outrageously priced.

    2. Are there online courses that would help me?

    3. How did you get started in the very beginning? I'm 27 so I hope to have a few years to spend learning!

    4. I take pictures of all the newborns at church to make a bulletin board, any advice on this subject specifically?

    Thanks...[​IMG]

    Thanks for looking and any advice. I realize now after looking at all your photos how unclear these seem...help me focus!

    Cute cute cute and cute.
    There is heaps of information on the net and in this forum too. I'd just spend a couple of days browsing around in here. Same for the camera question.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Your pictures are pretty good - I wouldn't say you are out of your league at all.
    Spend a while browsing the different sections then post appropriate questions on the right boards.
    We are all just here to help.
