Hi all, So I got my first camera for Christmas this year and have been trying to learn how to use it properly. Figured I would put a few pictures to see what people think of them. This is my first SLR camera (Sony Alpha 380). I'm still not quite sure what all the settings are just yet but thankfully I have a few people I know who are experienced and are willing to sit down and show me things. Anyway -- I went out to the beach this weekend and tried out my new camera. Looking for thoughts on my pictures and input on how to make things better as I learn. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
