    Hello everyone, I am new here and new to photography.

    This seems like the place to be and from what I have read and seen its the only place to be for inspiration and advice.

    I have posted some photos in the gallery it was my first go with colour.
    But I really will be getting in to B&W I have played around for about the last 2 years, only understanding little but enough to make the odd good mistake.

    But I feel I am now getting a better understanding of things and hope with the help here I should be able to grow.

    Kind Regards
    Paul

    Welcome Paul, from the south-west coast of British Columbia, Canada.

    I like your photos. Would we be correct in guessing that you are from Barcelona?

    Thanks for subscribing.

    Welcome, Paul. This is indeed a great place for beginners. Ask all your questions and don't be shy. It is quite rare here for anyone to take it out on a beginner just for asking a question. The breadth of knowledge in this community is amazing.

    Paul - welcome from just outside NYC. (Actually I'm an exiled Brit - just don't mention it around July 4!!) There's a wealth of info to pick up searching the threads, and a whole bunch willing to share their knowledge for the asking.
    Enjoy.
