    I got given a DSLR over Christmas, so I hope to join in this thread properly again. I mostly want to take photos around my home town, so up on the hills mostly for now, as well as Railway photography. Im really out of practice and rusty, but I hope I can get back into it.
    here's some of my older stuff back when I was still in College.

    It's always been one of my life goals, loved it so much I'm trying to work out where I can tighten the budget so I can afford the club fees and join.

    Some fantastic pictures in here (I'm a sucker for landscape/night photography). Will hopefully be able to upload some of my own at some point, but DSLR is in the shop for maintenance (they are taking forever!), but hopefully soon!

    Hopefully you'll see more from me in a few months or so - I've just purchased my very first DSLR Camera. (It was a second-hand set but it looks to be in very good condition. It's a Nikon D5100 with 18-55MM VR Lens Kit, still boxed & including all original accessories (I want to get a zoom lens at some point but this will do for now whilst I get used to it). Also included in the package was:- 2 8GB memory cards, a spare lithium-iron battery pack, several filters (don't have the list to hand right now but I do know one is for stopping reflections from glass and another is a blue filter), external manual flash, and a Nikon manual extension tube (for macro photos))

    Sounds like a good place to get started
    The filter you mentioned is probably a circular polarizer great for interesting reflections and on the sky try rotating it at an angle from the sun. I use one all the time.
    One note of caution is th a you may need another or a larger memory card l have 4 32. 8 and two 2s and have filled most on one air show. Admittedly I do shoot in RAW it's better for processing and if you want to head down this route I would recommend a programme called Rawtherepee. It free

    Thanks for the information :) (And I see Rawtherepee is Mac compatible, perfect! Cheers!)

    I do have a 64GB micro-sd card with adaptor *somewhere* but I seem to have misplaced it right now. This package just happened to have extra memory cards with it and hey you can never have too many of those because as you say it's easy to fill up (in my case it was with video on my old camera but that one didn't do RAW (it also only did 720p so I'm sure this 1080p camera will use up even more video space as well as the images being larger if I use the RAW format)).

    I have the filters to hand now so these are the ones I currently have:-

    - Graduated Blue Filter (52mm)
    - HMC Filter (52mm)
    - Circular Polarizing Filter (52mm)
    - Grey Filter Vario (52mm)
    - Ultra-Violet Filter (52mm)
