Starting Adventures in Photography

Well, after many years of my hubby learning, studying and having fun with photography I have decided to start doing the same.  I picked up one of his photography books this week and began reading.  I quickly learned that I should have started with the "dummies" book.  I found myself skipping over more than half of the information as I was reading because I had no idea what certain acronyms and terminology meant.

There is so much to learn and know to really create some good photographs.  Someday, when I learn a little more and start shooting, I will share it here.

Oh yea,  I got my hubby's hand-me-down camera as he just got himself a new one.  We are Canon people so I will be starting and learning on the intro EOS Canon Camera (the Rebel XT...I think ?? ha).

Amy -- The great thing about digital photography is that you can shoot, shoot, shoot and then delete all the shots you don't like. There are things to learn, like how to set the camera's aperature and things like that, but for now, really, just set the thing on Manual (that's the green square) and shoot away. As you read and learn, you'll understand it more, but much of it is learning as you go.

Good luck to you!

Me too! I'm falling in love with photography... and thank goodness it's digital. I can just play, play, play without worrying about the cost!
