    Still finding my feet!

    Hi guys! Recently purchased my first DSLR (got a Canon EOS-1300D) And still finding my way with it! The fun is in learning though, excited to get out and grab some shots!

    g'day chris; don't be shy and ask the questions .... the only silly or dumb question is the one not asked

    do yourself a favour and get a couple of beginner books from the library ; better than you tube imo to get the basic understanding

    no doubt there will be some from around Dubbo... or at least a camera club to bounce your ideas off...

    look forward to seeing the world through your eyes

    Good luck with it. Don't be afraid to use Auto and think about how best to compose the shot before getting technical.

    Yep, auto is good to start with while you learn about composition.

    Do you get to the zoo much? Been there years ago as a teanager... There's sure to be lots of photo opportunities in there

    Thanks! Auto is definitely my friend at the moment! Have played with the Aperture Priority and Shutter priority modes too
