Congratulations! The holidays have brought you one of the most fun gifts around; a new digital camera! Maybe it was a gift or maybe you bought it yourself. Be it a DSLR or a Point and Shoot, the excitement of unwrapping a new camera is usually followed by trying to understand all the controls, impatiently charging the battery and maybe, just maybe, reading the manual. Now that it has been a few weeks and you are hopefully getting accustomed to working your camera, let’s take a look at some great ideas from the DPS archives of what to do with your new gift.

Photography, for me, is all about having fun, experimenting and learning. While there are many great websites out there, DPS has a wealth of wonderful tips and tools for the beginning photographer. If you are new to the website in the past year or so, take a look through the archives as there are over 2000 published posts! Better yet, try the search box near the top right side of this site to find what you are looking for faster.

Enjoy your new camera and happy shooting!!
