I was the lucky recipient of a DSLR this Christmas - a Canon EOS Rebel T1i. Fancy-dancy.
I have long hated my little point-and-shoot piece of nonsense. The quality of the pictures was so low that I was rarely taking pictures (and was frustrated with how few were usable!). It was the second point and shoot that we had purchased in as many years.
OK - the truth people??! I am just a little bit afraid of this camera. It is intimidating. Somebody who carries this kind of camera should be able to take a decent shot.
I am looking into courses. There doesn't really seem to be much for somebody who really just wants the basic "tell me aaaaall about exposure, f-stops and the like, please". Mostly they are "make me into a creative genius" courses. Maybe I just need to read a book to start??
Was anybody else intimidated by their much desired piece of technology? How did you start? Any recommendations?
I thought about not telling you all about my new exciting Christmas gift (thus the delay in posting about it - it's February!?!). I hoped that you might think I was becoming more talented with my point and shoot. ;)
The quality of images on this blog may or may not get better! In the meanwhile, bear with me. Some of my shots will be weird.
