>>2743976 Learn about composition, metering, and the basic fundamentals of photography. Having a decent understanding of it will help you tremendously (google that shit, it's all over everywhere). Don't bite off more than you can chew, otherwise you'll burn yourself out and stop taking photos.
At entry, don't worry too much about your own equipment. It's more important to understand what you have and how to use it at this point. Once you feel a bit more comfortable, then it's a good idea to start advancing and looking into upgrades.
And most importantly, actually take pictures. You'll probably want to take a picture of every little thing, which is fine for a beginner, but you should always try to improve. By reading about the fundamentals and understanding them by actually taking pictures, you'll start to understand how to take decent, better, then good photos. General rule of thumb, for everyone 100 photos you take, maybe 1 or 2 will actually be worth keeping around.
i've basically been taking travel photos with just my phone and a random point and shoot, but my friend was selling his DSLR (nikon d5200) for a pretty decent price and it was in almost perfect quality, so i decided to buy it along with a 18-55mm lens kit; so pretty standard stuff
what mode do you guys normally shoot in? obviously not auto, but do you guys always go full manual, or do you put it on Av or P to save yourselves some time?
