New Canon T3i DSLR= SWEET! [continuously updated]

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Ah, finally got my first DSLR! Man so much fun! I have ALWAYS enjoyed taking photos, but this thing takes it to a whole new level. I am very new to this, like less than a week new redface.gif, but wow, I cant believe the quality of photos this thing takes! It's a Canon T3i with the 18-55mm kit lens, and the 55-250mm Telephoto. I also ordered a few goodies with it, 32Gb SD, Ravelli Tripod, and some other misc. items. biggrin.gif

Havent really gotten use to this thing, and all the settings yet, been taking most on 'creative auto', until I can figure out what everything is. redface.gif Anyway, here are a few pics. First pic was taken with a different camera obviously. Please go easy.. These are like my first few shots haha! *I REALLY want to get into long exposure photography too!

Nice camera and a nice shot of a cool PC too. I wish I had a DSRL. I'm not a hardcore camera enthusiast by any means but I to have a interest in long exposure photography.

T3i, good choice smile.gif

I remember when I got my 30D I loved it. In fact, I'm still using it now and I love it even more than the day I got it.

For me, Program mode is my "auto mode" as it still lets me adjust a few things like WB and iso. Check out this link when you feel like you want more control but don't want to go full manual:
http://www.digital-photography-school.com/exposure-compensation-manual-shooting-without-being-in-manual?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+DigitalPhotographySchool+%28Digital+Photography+School%29

Also start shooting RAW! You will be able to save previously "ruined" shots.


Most importantly, have fun! In no time you will see great improvements in not only your photography, but your creative skills too thumb.gif
