New To Photography

Hi all. I've been lurking here as a visitor for quite a while and enjoying the posts and banter. Now I've obtained a used EM1 I'm hoping to put some of the things learned here to practical use. For the time being, my posts will probably be more in the Lounge than anywhere else till I get used to clicking the shutter

Welcome .. I suggest you don't stick to the Lounge (off topic) drop a few pictures into Foto Fair (friendly comments invited) and we can all help with pointers if needed or just support things we like

Regards
Andy

A warm welcome from me too. Any questions ask away and the sooner you start clicking that shutter the more you'll learn.
