A photographer is born

First of all, hey everyone. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

So I'm not a new deviant as such - I've had my account for years but only recently submitted any art. I've just begun learning photography (for a second time - I learnt back in school but have since forgetten) and have already taken some images that I'm proud of and want others to enjoy.

I'm using a DSLR that was bought for us as a wedding gift, along with a couple of lenses and accessories I purchased since. My favourite is a prime 50mm f/1.8 lens - you'll probably notice it used a lot in the photos I'll submit! :P

I hope that some of you find my images pleasing, and I'd greatly appreciate any comments or advice you'd like to give (please do this on the actual image rather than here so that I know which image you're discussing).

Also, if any new or experienced photographers want to get in touch, feel free! We can always use more inspiration and ideas, right?

It's still better than nothing! You should try longer exposures now that you're not relying on handheld :)

Do you use auto-focus or manual? If they're fuzzy, it's probably your focus being slightly off. :)

Auto focus,My camera doesn't do Manual :( I was hoping to get a new one, but I gave up, my parents got me a horse :O So I'll upgrade when I get everything I possibly can.

It's my most recent photo :)

I saw the photo already :) It's a good shot, shame about the focus issues.

Do you know how to focus and re-frame shots?

Hey :) I'm great - how are you?

I haven't decided yet what I like to shoot. Feel free to take a look through my gallery - it's a bit of a mixed bag so far :P
