THERE IS HOPE!!!

when i first received my canon rebel last november, i was tickled friggin' pink!!! look at me everyone with my professional looking camera.

of course its only a professional camera if you know how to use it.

for almost a year now i have struggled with learning when to use which setting, arguing with mike b/c he tries to show me how to use it only to get tired of me yelling at him and screaming "you're wrong". i've taken out the manual only to find that i must not understand english as much as i thought b/c i don't know what the hell its talking about. i keep saying that i have got to find a course in the area and that can show me how to use this damn thing to its fullest potential.

but when you're sitting outside and you shoot some pictures that look like this, it gives me hope that maybe i'm not so lousy with this thing and that maybe i can learn how to use it to its fullest potential.





**btw...if anyone has any pointers, i would greatly appreciate em :)

Oh my gosh, I am the queen of not knowing about my camera. I keep saying that I need to take a class, but really... I hardly have time to take pictures, yet alone a class!

Camera is a language I cannot comprehend either for some reason, I grasp the concepts of aperature and shutter speed and then 10 minutes later...Poof!...gone!

Great pics!

I have the same problem. Bought a fancy camera last year and figure out when to use what setting. Read the manual. It must have been in french, because I didn't understand it.

Looked around for classes and they are several hundred dollars in my area. Too expensive!

So I bought a Digital Photography for Dummies book, and that's in french too. Or so it seems.

Good Luck!

Sorry, I meant "Bought a fancy camera last year and I can't figure out"...

That makes more sense now.
