Hi all you happy snappers.I am delighted to say that my wonderful wife has just quenched my thirst for starting up photography by buying me a NIKON COOLPIX L110.It's digital and I've started snapping simple boring stuff, compared to all your stuff that is,but using the simple stuff to try and make a nice picture out of nothing might help me learn. I would just like to know how to get them on this site so I could get some advise from all you pros by the way H just looked up your thread and your pics are fantastic, I seem to be after those kind of scenic shots, I love land & sky scapes but don't think I'd be any good at portraits.All advice welcome, just getting them on the site would be a great starter, I'm new to all this.Many thanks from an admirer of all of you u-vox snappers

Duncan,

Well done on taking the plunge and getting started! If it gets hold of you, it will take over your life!!

Thanks for your comments on my shots on EV, you should also have a look at Conny's Pig's images as he has a long running thread which is filled with superb, inspirational images. He also has his own website which you should see! There are others who also post images here, so check them all out!

Suggest you read what you can and see as much of other peoples images so you can get a sense of what works for you. Finding your own personal style is an interesting journey. Most importantly, get out there and take shots, experiment with everything; time of day, seasons, and your own camera to understand what it can do for you (someone else has said this so I will rip off this pice of advice...READ THE MANUAL!!).

If you want to see lots of images...get a "Flickr" or "Photobucket" account and you will be able to post your stuff up on the web and see what others are up to.

To post on EV, I use Photobucket and then copy the "Image" code from the picture data on the site and post it in here using the "Image" button on the "Instant UBB Code" set of buttons.

Go for it!!

Bonne Chance

H laugh

Thanks H, Ash is one of the inspirations along with everyone else on this site that got me really hooked into this.My wife got me the camera for my 40th exactly 7 days ago and I haven't stopped snapping,it's so addictive.I'll try this photobucket thing and see what happens.Many thanks again H

Duncan,

It took me a while to work it out...

Try this....

In your Photobucket album, underneath the image you want to select, copy the "Direct Link" text and paste that into the box that appears when you click the "Image" button on the EV page.

Good Luck
