  • Usually men get the women gifts when they messed up something.

  • Cool. :)

    Need photography classes?

    Gulf Photo Plus holds some major photography classes annually. But meh, it's not really *that* worth it unless you're also planning to network with other serious photog enthusiasts.

    I suggest you teach yourself. It's really simple, but not easy. XD has a neat intro to photography. I think you'll find it very useful. You can also browse Digital Photography School's archives for their tutorials. Have fun learning. :)

  • KJ - the Mrs & I don't reasons to get each other gifts :)

    i-maginate - i am! I think my wife is regreting getting me a camera. i am carrying it everyhwere.

    Danny - thanks for the leads mate.. I know about Gulf photo plus and their exhibitions as well. Heard they are really good. But like you said.. the web is loaded with stuff.. I also bought a couple of photography magazines. They are packed with tips and ideas.

  • I'd spend money on lenses instead of classes; depends what photography you're planning on doing, on that camera with the stock lens (I believe 18-55mm or similar) and using the green square mode (a.k.a. auto) you can't really ever go wrong.

    If you want to take some nice portraits/landscapes etc then it's best to pick up some more lenses.

  • I agree with Sam, plus practice makes perfect.

    Get out there, experiment with all the different settings - you'll soon see what is successful and what's not.

    Also RTFM - Read The F**king Manual!

    So, Mrs M is making sure that you have a good camera to record the new Mini M MkII, ay? ;-)

    Thanks for the offer of more tobacco, Mory, but our pipe is currently in storage somewhere in Melbourne! xo

  • That's a Canon EOS Digital. 1000D?

    You don't need lessons. Just let the camera take all the decisions. use P mode. You're in safe hands!!!

  • YUM! Enjoy they toy. Chase Jarvis keeps a fantastic site and blog of and around his photography work. Very generous with sharing his experiences. Tons of fun as well.
