Photography for Beginners. by lewcid Photography for Beginners. by lewcid
Are you relatively new to digital photography, and want your work to look more polished?
Then this is for you!

I am going to share some tips and suggestions that helped me when I first started out, without getting into technical details.

It might take a while to load, please be patient

Please feel free to point out any corrections/additions.

Update: I presented a live tutorial on May 7th in the #photography chatroom on dAmn, that builds upon this one. You can find the log here: [link]

How about the Canon 40D? You can get it for $500 on Ebay. Or a 30D would be closer to under $400.
