    Hi everyone

    I've been getting somewhat interested in photography in general lately and thought I'd look up a forum to get some help. I found an old Nikon EM as well as a few extras that I know nothing about and want to take up photography for fun.

    Assuming I know nothing about photography, can anyone give me a link for a beginner's guide or something like that?

    Thanks in advance!

    DSLR_Noob's learnnig guide for noobs that are noobier than he...... (assuming no knowledge of photography)

    What you'll need :
    -A camera(the Nikon EM is the camera)
    -1 reel of Film (unexposed)
    -2 hands(2nd hand optional, but preferred)
    -eyes(in working condition)

    Step 1:
    open the back of your camera by lifting the little little knob all the way on the top left up as high as you can.
    Step 2:
    place the film cartridge inside the camera with a little bit of film pulled out


    you probably messed up............... try again


    that's not the film cartridge that's a battery......

    you know what, you're making this difficult. It's almost like you know nothing about photography. I give up.....

    :D

    rule 1
    google is your friend... use it dont abuse it (really abuse it? hmm i dont think you can...)
    rule 2
    SEARCH tool is your friend.. USE IT
    rule 3
    people are happy to help, and those who are jerks well just ignore them
    rule 4
    learn on your own just play around if you hear a cracking noise chances are you should stop

    It appears the above posters are having a laugh for the weekend.

    Use the search options to the top right. You should be able to get the first few questions answered, then phone in again.
