YOU GUYS. I'm super excited! I've been wanting to learn photography for a long time, and finally took the jump and bought a nice camera. I don't ever plan on becoming any sort of professional - I just want to learn how to take great pictures and have some control over the kind of shots I get.
So with that said, I treated myself to a Nikon D3300 as my first step into DSLR. It's quite the upgrade from my current iPhone and old coolpix point-and-shoot. With that said, oh my good lord photography is overwhelming. Seriously. So much information.
I'm super excited to start learning this art though, and I'll keep you all updated on my progress. Feel free to send some tips my way, especially ones that helped you not feel totally in over your head in the beginning.
