There are some nice modern factory places in Artarmon that arent fenced off at night... go for a cruise around herbert st/reserve rd and you'll find some

Yeah.

I usually go near the harbour (on the North side, the south side has too many people wandering around). I've ducked in to some "warehouse parks" in Artarmon before as well.

best bet it to cruise around MOST good places are found by mistake, hence the reason why know one knows where they are :)

funny how you went to dslr when you are a noob :)
its very possible to take worse off photos than semi slrs and enthusiast compacts due to the boatload of features some camera can have

however when its nighttime the dslr's start to shine.

i would say read the cameras manual back to the front to know the features and manual adjustments it can do.
jump onto the heap of digital photography sites online and read up

looking good though

Nice photos at Olympic Park keungleung. Although my one swipe about that place is the security rangers that come to get you when you're on a certain side of that strip (apparently you block their cameras) and they also start turning off the blue lighted pole thingies when they notice people there....

Nice WRAITH! Love the last 2 pics.

No need to really read the manual. Just play around with the camera. I find that to be the best thing with everything. hehehehe. Just don't break it. :)

Kinda like driving manual... I didn't know how to drive manual untill I knew how a car actually worked. Regardless of how many people 'instructed' me, I could never get it... until I read on how it worked.. and drove by myself.. and played around. Same rule applyed with me and my camera :)

there are still features on a camera that a general user does not know exist or have no idea why its there.

only once you know the features are there can you then abuse them or fiddle with them.

i just bought a new mid-range everyday camera with aperture and shutter speed priority and manual adjustment but theres alot more stuff on it.
almost finished reading the manual for it then ill start playing with it.

a empty carpark with good lighting is always good
but if you have a good digicam it doesnt really matter where you take the pictures :)

Good lighting is good, but lighting and other objects being reflected by the cars paint is not good.
Car parks are the worst culprit for this.

hey keungleung - what DSLR did you buy ?
Im really seriously thinking of investing in the Canon D400 for $1399 (twin lens) as a starter but I know prac nothing of photography except push the button and focus and this camera seems a really good buy ! hheeh

How about we have a beginners meetup for us newbies for a crash course in DSLR ?

*ahem* we need a pro for guidance

Canon FTW!

Can I join ur DSLR crash course? Had my 400D for about 3 mths now, don't know much abt photography but slowly figuring out how to use the various features.

Yeahhhh well i reakon throwing yourself in the deep end is always a good thing. Your going to get better and better, and the more practise you have the better. Rather than buying a crap camera first off and learning, then loosing money, and spending more on a dslr... it's also cheaper buying a dslr from the start.

Came across this whilst browsing for stuff for my camera. Canon owners mite be interested... i haven't read it myself yet.
