I have only recently bought myself a decent camera and have started to really get into my photography. I stumbled accross your site yesterday and spent the next four hours going through it. Its now bookmarked and I intend to come back daily. Thanks for your tips and advice. Regards Steve
p.s Im a Police Officer from Manchester, England and I think I may be posting much more on here soon. Thanks again.
Fabulous, Steve. I grew up in the UK and it is a pleasure to be able to help you! Questions always welcome btw.
