Hello to All,
My name is Ormina and I live in Fife, but am originally from Glasgow. I have been scanning the forum for a couple of weeks now and was very impressed by the contents.
I have been interested in photography for many years, but mainly in the point and shoot type.That all changed last may after we asked my now brother- in -law to take our wedding photo's. He had a "big" camera and seemed to know all the "jargon". His intentions were well meant.I do feel for him. The photo'd were a bit of a disaster. Never ask a family member to take important photo's the pressure is just to much
We do not have a decent shot of the day, most pictures are blurred. Thankfully other family members were on hand to take some snap shots, some of them being very good. I decided then that I would purchase the same camera and vowed to learn to use it to it's maximum potential "fuji S9600" I have since added the beautiful G9 to my collection. I nneded a smaller camera to carry around with me.
It soon became obvious that I needed a little more than determination to take good pictures. I hope that by joining the forum I shall learn much more about the technical and visual side of photography. I am doing a home study course but I believe the input you recieve from the forum is a great advantage. I look forward to posting/learning/enjoying others photo's and in general enjoying what the forum has to offer.
