Newbie from Salford - Hi!

Hi there

Just recently bought a mini 2 to give me a completely different perspective of photography.

I live in Salford, 48 year young, single dad and complete novice to the hobby. even though ive always wanted to buy a drone and look into the photography side as well as filming aspect. I finally took the plunge and bought a 2nd hand mini2 which i’m looking forward to enjoy it and reading and watching as much as i can, If anyone is near me in Salford and wouldn’t mind meeting up to show me the ropes and get some tips that would be very much appreciated and cant wait to learn and have fun

I’m constantly looking for tips n YouTube being my first port of call, I’m hoping this forum will provide me some more information and advice. Thanks to all in advance
