    Hello all,

    Im Daz, a newbie to DSLR photography, currently equipped with a Canon EOS 1000d, Canon 18-55mm lens, and Canon 75-300mm lenses.

    I look forward to getting some good advice, new locations and generally improving my own skills, whilst contributing to the forum as a whole!

    G'day Daz. What are your specific interests/ skills? There are probably some here who can help you, and some whom you can help.

    Cheers,

    R.

    Thank you all! Im currently at Valley on Anglesey, and I'm just getting into the basics of photography.

    My interests lie mainly in landscapes and sunsets, however I do have an eye on aviation in places too...as long as it augments the landscape.

    So far the plan is to use trial and error when shooting to bring my skills up, and read a lot from here and books, such as Nick Liveseys Snowdonia Mountains book.

    Have a look on YouTube, Ilford. They have some excellent videos on camera controls.
    Have a think about joining a club -Llangefni, Holyhead and Beaumaris and Menai Bridge.
    Don’t know the first two, but BMBCC very friendly and welcoming.

    Get advice on your nearest photographic society/camera club......go to your local library or check out the Welsh Photographic Federation, you live in a wondeful place for a landscape photographer....have fun and enjoy!

    All of the above is great advice.

    Best way really is keep on clicking, I doubt you’ll make errors that we all haven’t.

    Your very lucky living where you do. E N J O Y

    Hi Daz - I'm from Amlwch originally , worked for a Bank in Holyhead , been living on the Isle of Skye for the past 30 years .
    You'll have plenty of opportunities for photographing a variety of subjects - [ landscape , sports , wildlife and street ] where you live - buy a few books , study the old masters [ painters and photographers ] , view lots of youtube tutorials and as others have mentioned join a camera club , before long you'll see huge improvements .
