    Hey, so i decided to try out this photography thing the other day, picked up a camera (Fuji finepix s5600) and started shooting, i just couldnt stop !
    I never realised it could be so awesome!

    So here are just a couple of the hundreds of pics ive taken so far, please feel free to tell me what you think.

    I'm thinking about getting a really decent camera, but dont know much about it, but i'm looking at a cannon slr camera (model - no idea) God i wish i could afford a Nikon!

    Wow, you're off to a great start! You seem to already have a good eye for a pleasing composition. I love #1 and #5. Keep it up!

    What Ajay is saying: the world of photography seems to have only waited for you to finally arrive! You do have an eye ... and the right feeling to choose the presentable photos from the masses. That is another important thing in photography - to be able to tell the good (or better) from the bad (or worse).

    But I hope you'll only just buy yourself a Canon (camera!), not a cannon. The latter could be just too destructive in the end (and if you should choose a Nikon camera, that'd be all right by me, too!) ;) ;) ;)

    Ghost shripy :mrgreen:

    I shoot a canon SLR, I love it.

    With SLRs they can generally be found on the cheap nowadays due to the dSLR movement.

    It's the digital equivalent of an SLR

    SLR = Single Lens Reflex
    dSLR = digital Single Lens Reflex
