I am happy that my daughter has begun to show an interest in photography (I gave the D300 to my kids). Here she’s out with me to “find things to shoot”. I am thrilled that she wants to accompany me out for som photographing :)
It’s common for people to get an expensive DSLR only to get dissapointed that they are unable to get the *great shots* that others have taken with the same camera (or even with a *shudder* CHEAPER camera). IMO the basics of composition is the first thing to learn.
I am not a pro, nor do I claim to be one – but I am constanly Learning and picking up tips and tricks as I go along.
My journey started with a Nikon D70 (that I wore out completely) – and when I finally got that one really nice shot it triggered something in me.
