Hi everyone, welcome to the Photography tips and techniques section for beginners. This is the palce to ask general questions about camera technique and how to acheive specific effects.

Before posting though, please browse the existing subjects here and also check out our Tutorials page! Your question may have already been answered!

If your question is very specific to a particular product or manufacturer, please post in the dedicated manufacturer sections in the main forum, such as Canon, Nikon etc.

You may also find the Photography Showcase section useful for browsing photos fo specific subjects, like portraits, landscapes, action, etc.

Gordon

Gordon, I haven't received my FZ100 yet and won't receive until late September, but spending time watching your tutorial videos. Have you ever thought of marketing your "tips", especially the suggested initial settings following each video? Make it available in water proof material that could stand up to aggressive handling, while also small enough to be carried in a small/medium/large camera bag or back pocket. It would serve as a quick reference to beginners like me! If something like it is already available, I haven't found it.

Ken Rockwell has something like this, but I think Gordon's information is more accurate/field-relevant. Go for it Gordon!

I am thrilled I found this site by accident. I am such a novice with such a passion for photography, I have a feeling, I will get a lot of use from this site. I bought a Canon SX130, I like it, but want to love it. Already, tonight I plan to put some of the tips from the workshop to use. Thank you again..

Hi all.

I am new to online forums and having upgraded from a camera on my iPhone 4 to a Panasonic Lumix FZ48 bridge camera I decided that rather than point and click I'd try to use the camera to its ability. It can't be that difficult to master? Can it?
I am really enjoying taking photos and generally use it at the beach, snapping surfers. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

My favourite photo I've added (hopefully below)

Hi Surferboi,

I see you tried to post some Flickr photos here, though it didn't work. I'd like to remind you this is a PHP forum, not an HTML one, so HTML code doesn't work. To fix this, seeing that you're posting from Flickr, choose the PHP option where you copy the code to post on the internet.

Hope I helped :)
