I took up photography after retirement, starting with a Nikon D40. A one day course at the Nikon Centre in central London gave me a good insight into how to use a DSLR camera. I have since owned a Nikon D5500 and now am using a Nikon D7500. I like this very much as I usually shoot in manual and this model easily allows me to alter the shutter speed and aperture through the front and rear 'wheels'.
My first decent photo was actually taken with a Google Nexus tablet. The subject was my daughter and her partner sitting on an inside window ledge at the 'Top of the Rock' (Rockefeller Centre) in New York. The image was very dark but I knew there was a decent photo there so I decided to download a free editing program and had a play. It worked! I posted on a photography website based in California and had some great comments and lots of likes. I still get comments on it now. So, that convinced me that I had an eye for a good image and my photography hobby started there.
Moral: have faith in your ability. You will make mistakes, learn from them and any criticism and seek to become comfortable using your camera. Good luck to you all.
