View Full Version : New to Photography

I am new to photography, even though I am 59 years of age. My passion for growing flowers and vegetables and entering them into competitions has lead me into photography. I wanted to take shots of my garden and also close ups of plants and insects. I am very much a beginner and still learning how to use my DSLR.http://://www.whatdigitalcamera.com/gallery/files/3/7/0/8/giant_leaves1.jpg

Welcome to the best hobby one can imagine. My father was a keen photographer and I was given a Box Brownie when I was little. I have not looked back and, although I am not going to make any serious photographers lose any sleep, I get the greatest of pleasure from being creative. I have been a cabinet maker and the world's worst guitar player and now write full time but photography keeps me excited. Your garden will give you a great supply of subjects. Make sure you can shoot macro.
