Learning

Back before Trey was born we purchased a Canon Rebel T2i and I have been having a hard time sitting down and figuring it out, well the other day I FINALLY feel like I got some good shots with it!

Those of you that have DSLR cameras - how did you learn? Books? Classes?

I want to make sure I'm capturing all of Trey's firsts the best way possible!





p.s. I NEVER thought I'd dress Trey in all of the little Carter's outfits with Critters & such on them... HA! Boy was I wrong! This one has a turkey on the butt!

I took an online photography class that helped me soooo much! And it is not very expensive.

Your pictures look great! I practiced, practiced, practiced with my DSLR and read a lot of blogs about photography. Learning to go manual will really give you lots of creative options with your photos. I like Pioneer Woman's photo advice and I joined the Clickin' Mom's photography forum!

Your photos are really turn out nice. My friend Barb (she has to thought me how to make my camera do what I want it to do. Not shooting my Auto). She is doing an online photography class. You have 6 months to do it. So you don't have to worry about keeping up with it threw the holidays. Barb is a most awesome teacher. Here is a link to her info. It is not to late to join. It is also posted on my blog.

I am taking the class. I have the material but I have not started.

Here is the link if you are interested. I would be pleases as punch if you joined.

I have a Canon DSLR and I just have had to play around with it. I got some tips from blogs, but I maintly just learn as I go. We have had ours for 2 years now, and I just love it!

Oh I so want that outift...I keep eyeing it online, but now I think it won't ship in time. Oops. So much for procrastinating!

Keep posting about your camera, I'm in the market for one myself!

I too have the camera and I totally don't know how to work it! Everybody keeps telling me I have to start off by reading the manual... sounds thrilling, no?
