Having been hunting round flickr in a response to the crap places/beautiful places thread, I am inspired to start taking good pics (not just ones with my kids in!). I spend a lot of time walking in lovely places so I have the material to hand!
What to start with? I beleive we have a bog standard digital camera somewhere around the house but mostly we use our phones . What sort of camera is best to start with?
I have a Canon EOS that I've had a few years now. It's easy to use but also quite flexible if you want to do more than standard shots. We've taken some fab shots both close up and landscape, good entry level SLR camera
I am behind with my personal photography challenge but this has some shots which were basically point-and-shoot. My Lumix isnt an SLR but one of the ones that looks like it is and bridges the gap between the little digital cameras and the Big Boys.
mines an Lumix DMC FZ28, (pretty much point & shoot) which I've had a while now, so you might find it cheaper on e-bay etc - I've photos on my profile taken with it if you want to see what it can doo & I've won places in photo contest using it, so
I also used to love my old Olympus & got some lovely photos from it this one mine got smashed so DH bought me one from e-bay very cheaply, as they are an old model now - though think he might have had an ulterior motive - ied nick my Lumix
