    Ive loved seeing all your great photos and watched you all get better and better what would you suggest is the best way to start photography. I do have a camera but its not very good so I'd be starting from zero

    remember that it's not about equipment. real talent is behind the camera. so all you really need is appreciation for the beauty of the world and your own perspective at how you see it. :)

    Flickr is a great place to look around and get inspiration. Join a few groups, comment on some people's photos that catch your eye, then post your own photos. It starts to become quite addictive, posting your shots to see what the world thinks of them.

    If you're feeling really keen join this group

    Flickr: Project 365

    Basically take 1 photo of anything you like every day for 365 days. It's quite a challenge but really gets you thinking about your camera and the shots you would like to take.

    Oh, and have fun
