    AP's new to photography....Im now a student ;)

    I admit at first I found this site to be overwhelming in the sense that it was information over load for a beginner like myself.

    However, I have now taken a few days to start taking in the format, rules and the process I need to follow to learn how to photograph better.

    I was going to post up a thread suggesting a step by step guide for people like myself to learn in the correct order. I am guilty for already playing around in manual mode on my camera when I really need to take smaller steps and take in the info better by starting at the beginning.

    That's when I stumbled on Kym's AP's new to photography' learning plan!
    (Mod edit, factual correction: NTP was Rick's brain child and he wrote most of the initial content, I wrote the LP, many of the appendicies and also moved the content to the Library when we started that; refer credits in http://www.ausphotography.net.au/for...otography_Book others have and do contribute)

    So I am now a student.

    I will start my first photographs this weekend. At the moment I am happy to admit I know nothing about photography but I have always wanted to know more about it.

    Hopefully over the next few months as I follow the learning plan you will see a big improvement.

    Assuming I am posting this in the right section, I will keep this thread up to date with my progress in case there are others out there going through the same process and are interested in following a true dummy's progress

    Hi DannyG! Welcome to AP

    First of all- don't feel guilty for playing around in Manual- usually beginners are encouraged to do this and are too frightened You're already a step ahead! The learning plan is a great place to start however, and also a lot of fun! Post up some images after the weekend and introduce us to your own personal, albeit very new, style

    Enjoy the forum!

    Whoops Thanks Kym, sorry about that error! I only joined a few days ago so along with my photography learning curve I am also learning about this great site.

    I must say I am a member of several different forums associated with some of my other interests and besides one other forum I visit regularly this one is moderated exactly how I perceive a forum should be run. I am yet to read any bickering or childish tit for tat threads on here, so well done to everyone concerned.
