1) What kind of camera you use (most)?

Thanks!
Thanks!

1. I have a Canon Rebel XTI with a cheap Promaster 18-50 lens. I use either that or my little canon SD point and shoot.

2. I learned composition and colors from oil painting (been doing that a lot longer than photography!) and mostly just practice.. Just find something you like to take pictures of (in my case, this is cars!) and just go out and try to get the best photo you can... play with a couple settings... see if that gives you more like what you want... Find other people's photos that you really really like... and see if you cant imitate them with stuff around your house... Wouldn't hurt to snag a basic photography book either... They're full of handy tricks and things to try...

This is at the intersection of Hwy. 226, 226A, and the BRP. The motel across the road is the Skyline Motel (828-765-9394). There is another one with a restaurant a couple hundred yards from here, Mountain View Motel (828-765-4233). Just up the road is The Switzerland Inn (828-765-2153. Just a few miles from my house.

I'd probably stay at the Switzerland Inn. The others are fine, just overlooking the main road so you will probably hear more trucks going down the mountain. YMHO.
