I just joined a photography group online called 365project and will be posting a photo a day. I felt it was a good way to get feedback from people in that group who had experience and a strong interest in photography and will hopefully learn something too.
I changed some settings on my Canon EOS to make it less light. I hope it helps. Close ups come out fine but landscapes tend to be too light - a problems lots of people find with this camera.
I am still green when it comes to using my camera and this will inspire me to try more things with it. So I will be posting my photo a day here - one day late. And any other events etc that happen to come up or catch my fancy. Hope you tag along or even join in!
