Personally i'm an amateur when it comes to photography, but I have noticed that there are a lot of skilled photographers here, so I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread about how you wonderful photographers go about taking amazing pictures. Like what settings and camera you use, your favourite time of day for taking pictures and any other special equipment you use, and any helpful tips you'd like to share with the aspiring photographer.
I have a fujifilm finepix S1600, 12 mega pixel 15x optical zoom (nothing too expensive as i'm just a poor student haha).
Most pictures I have taken are on "auto" shooting mode, i've tried playing with the settings but i'm just not grasping it.
Here's a few of my favourite pictures (non horsey) I have taken with it:
