This blog may seem a bit presumptuous of me and obvious, especially to those versed with photography, however I have noted a few photographic procedures and hints aimed specifically at those who are new to digital photography, along with some musings. These are not intended to be guidelines or tutorials as such and are by no means conclusive, merely some of my preferences and methods established during practice and experimentation with my camera and software. Everyone works differently and although these are some of the things I generally adhere to, I've learnt that there are no quick fixes to most things photographic, so one needs to be flexible to achieve a particular outcome. It seems to me that a lot of beginners get involved early with using all the whizz-bang software filters and effects prior to understanding the basic skills of photography. A decent camera is a hefty investment so you may as well get the best out of it. My advice, for what it's worth is to first get to know your camera well and what it's capable of, learn the art of composition, the effect of lighting intensity and direction, timing, mood, storytelling and many other things that are essential for good images. Oh, and don't be afraid to practice and experiment as much as possible.
