Just registered on the forum as I'm new to DSLR photography having previously only used compacts. I found the site after viewing some of Gordon's excellent videos whilst searching the net for tips and advice..

I seem to have spent hours reading and watching videos as I'm determined to get to grips with my 500D.. Unfortunately things aren't going to plan as although i have an understanding of the basics I've been less than impressed with my results so far...

I got up at 4:30am yesterday and headed to the beach in the hope of capturing a nice sunrise over the sea... Although the photo's looked ok on the viewer once home i quickly realised they were all rubbish once again and were quickly dispatched to the bin. :(

Like most of my previous trips out with the camera, although the results have been disappointing it hasn't been a complete waste of time as I'm at least mostly understanding what I'm doing wrong...
I guess I'll just keep plugging away and hope i get there in the end...

Anyway hope to get to know some of you on what looks like an excellent forum..
