ooooooooh…

My adorable bf got me the most awesome camera for Christmas! It is a Canon Rebel T1i, and OMG it is crazy. I love it already, but it is sooooo beyond my photo-taking capabilities at the moment to use the darn thing. It took a bit of time (and I had to consult the manual) to even figure out how to zoom and turn on the flash and record video! And that’s just the basics, stuff that I would have thought would be simple things to do with no prior knowledge of how to operate the camera (um, no) – there’s also the problem of…I don’t know anything about cameras in general – aperture? What is that? Shutter speed? Huh?

So, I’m going to go study up on the the camera and basic photography (all the while taking pictures of anything that will hold still (or that won’t) – for “practice” but really just because it’s shiny and new and pretty and I like the sound it makes when the shutter does its picture-taking thing! – and I’ll be back in 8 months or so once I can finally take acceptable quality pictures with it!
