I have decided to learn to use my new Rebel. First, I read the manual! Shocking! I did figure out how to make the histogram go away from my photo-reviewing, because I don't know how to read it, so it's pointless for now.
But just because I read the manual doesn't mean I understood much! I know all the buttons and stuff, but I don't understand the basics of speed, lighting and all those fancy other words..... So I am signing up for a photography class online. My buddy Debberoo is going to take the Learn your Rebel class with me, but the timing of the classes is conflicting with the arrival of her new baby (the nerve!) so we might have to put it off for now. Either way, I am signing up for a class that starts on February 6th. So if you have ever wanted to take such a class, let me know, I'm looking for a buddy! (or two)
In the mean time, I had some fun on the weekend. playing with the different automatic settings, trying to figure out ligthing while playing outside in the snow, and just plain shooting until i felt I got some good pictures.
I've put them in an album for your perusal.....
