My first DSLR.

Hello everyone. I'm pretty brand new to the whole camera thing. I started out looking for a basic point and shoot and ended up selecting a K-S2 for my first camera (technically not first camera but it is my first DSLR; my other two were have been bottom of the barrel point and shoots).

I did some photography back in elementary school as part of a project but that was almost 20 years ago.

Just want to learn all I can to take pictures of the world around me. My thing is dead animals that I find on my strolls, weird I know, but I kind of feel like they shouldn't just be left to decay and be ignored.

Anyway going through the User manual page by page to get a grasp on the basics.

Welcome to the forum. Enjoy you KS2 and do post some photos (...even if they are of dead animals, never thought dead animals can be interesting shots...) when you get the chance.

Welcome, you'll be pleased to to know that the basics of photography are preety much the same today as twenty years ago, just the medium of captures changed.
