About me

Hello everyone I guess i should start with Yes I am a NEWBIE love photos and just started taking some pics. Currently using a Hewelett Packard camera a bit dated and i know little about how to use it but I keep trying out different things.Hope to pickup a new camera soon and attend a few courses. I heard the Canon Rebel EOS would be a good choice and there are courses offered thru local community centers. If you have any suggestions on what type of classes a person should start with or a good camera to buy would love to hear your comments.
Had someone really important pass away and I was so out of it the only comfort i had was downloading pics off different sight and watch them after i organized and cleaned them. This took alot of my time and let me escape from my loss. Well now I am hooked love all kinds of pics especially any animal pics. Am picking up hints on lighting, angles and enjoying myself.
This is the first time submitting hope you all enjoy.
I thankyou all for your pics and comments hope to be with you all for awhile RON
