    Hi,

    I'm a complete beginner to photography but have been wanting to try it since one of my friend showed me a pretty picture taken with a "real camera" back in 2012 (I think it was a Canon Powershot). He unfortuntely has stopped taking taking pretty pictures and gave the Powershot to his mom but thankfully his little hobby was contagious and has infected me :p

    So I currently have an XF23mm f/2 with a then BNIB X-E1 body that I got pretty cheap (the body that is). Thought that the X-E1 is still pretty much relevant and I could upgrade later when needed. So far have been using the combo for taking pictures in the street because it's the most accessible for me here in the city and here's a pic that I took last weekend:

    I hope that its lack of quality doesn't offend anyone :p

    nice casual, street shot.

    It's you "eye" and how you frame your shots that make the difference between a snapshot and a real picture...........this is a real picture.
