    RIP Sue & Sam.

    I'll take some photos of you in the nude if you want.


    Have to keep my socks on though - just so I've somewhere to store my lens cap.

    Cheers for all the above, much appreciated, I will have a proper look tonight after work.

    As a side note I got the 18-55 and a 50mm 1.8 thrown in for not much more on top, i've taken quite a few shots with the 50mm and have had quite a bit of success (imo anyway) at getting some good bokeh? Shots

    A good friend of mine is a semi professional travel photographer. She regularly contributes to a French photography mag as well as having a couple of books published and this year she was a judge of a national competition.

    Take a look at her web site for a bit of inspiration:

    She's also a fantastic cook!

    As a beginner the last thing you need is books and websites. Just stick the 50mm nifty fifty on and get out and about taking shots. Aim to get yourself on full manual as soon as you can, everything you learn in between will take you to the next level as you put it. Enjoy!

    One good thing about music, when it hits you, you
    I am an amateur tog. http://www.pjdphotography.wordpress.com

    I agree with most that the best way to learn is to get out and shoot. Shutter speed and aperture relationship is key to having some control and once you master that you are away.Compositionally the rule of thirds can be a useful guide too.
    Aim to be shooting in manual asap and whilst shooting in RAW does give you a lot of post photo processing control aim to get the shot right first time and your photographic eye will develop quicker.
    Most of all try lots of different subjects and enjoy yourself.
