Hello everyone!

Hello everyone!

I own an Olympus 590UZ point and shoot camera for about a year so I would not even call my self an amateur photographer :)
I know that the chances of my pictures being approved are veeeeery slim but I enjoy it way too much to be discouraged by that.
I`m now trying to assemble a home made light tent so I could try and do some of those fancy white background photos :D
I`m also trying to learn about image editing so I could bring out the best from my images.
I like to browse the pictures because it gives me ideas and I get to see a lot of amazing pictures.

Hello Bashferi1. Welcome. I am in the same boat as you. I have noticed in the last couple of months that as long as you utilize the highest resolution on the camera and upload unique images, you should be fine. Do not be discouraged by the amount of photos that get rejected. Good luck to you!

welcome here! I finally got 2 images approved and it is pretty exciting to finally get a start! I am sure you will get your first couple soon too. And yes, its a LOT of rejection, but keep taking pictures!

Hi Bashfery1, best luck with your first uploads.

With a point and shoot allways use the lowest ISO possible and avoid very contrasty images, you will see its possible to approve them this way.

Whenever its possible, buy a DSLR, the simpler models are quite cheap and will help you learn and explore more you photographic opportunities, one option is the Canon Rebel line, check it on a local store.

Welcome to DT.
Like Afagundes said, buy DLSR. It is better, faster......and dont forget tripod.
