I am SUCH a REBEL.....

....OWNER!!!! Yes thats right, I finally broke down and get a Canon Rebel XSi...my jealousy of all you DSLR owners finally won out and I took the plunge! I am SO overwhelmed with all there is to learn, but already, I am excited about what I am seeing! I am forcing myself to shoot on manual (not automatic!) but its a lot to remember! So if you have any tips or any great websites, tutorials on learning to shoot with a DSLR, than I would love it if you would share!

Nicole,

Some of the best places I've found are:
Canon Digital Learning Center-http://www.usa.canon.com/dlc/controller?act=HomePageAct

Canon Digital XT Lessons---this will also apply to XS---http://www.usa.canon.com/content/rebelxt_tutorial/rebelxtlessons.htm

The GREATEST is this one, even if you only pay $19.95 for one month, you'll NEVER regret it! And, if you were a participant in the 2nd Annual Worldwide Photowalk, you get 30 days free!!! http://www.kelbytraining.com/player/index.html#154

Hope this helps and congratulations on your new "toy"!!

Blessings,
Marjohn

If you haven't already discovered this awesome site for free fonts, then you're going to be in heaven. Her name is Amanda and she takes awesome pictures, she recommends this book, Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson. I haven't read it yet, but I plan to real soon. Her website is www.kevinandamanda.com hope it helps.

Thank you so much for your wonderful freebies. You are seriously my favorite designer, I just bought a whole bunch of your stuff the other day at DSP. Thanks again!

Some of the sites I was referred to by a friend when I got my camera are:

www.dslrtips.com

www.all-things-photography.com/digital-slr.html

www.the-digital-picture.com/

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_single-lens_reflex_camera

ezinearticles.com/?Digital-SLR-Camera-Tips-For-Beginners-and-Pros&id=2033145

Good luck and don't forget the rest of the world is still out here (as my husbund always reminds me) Apparently he thinks just because he bought me a camera I shouldn't spend all my time playing on it! Lol

Congrats. I love my XSI and this place: http://digital-photography-school.com/digital-photography-tips-for-beginners. Their newsletter sums up the entire weeks of tips.

Congratulations on your new camera, and I'm SOOO glad to see you're using the manual mode. You really aren't learning anything about photography unless you do! Have a great time !!
