If you're like me, you love to capture life moments in pictures, and after seeing how great others pics were turning out with the new SLR cameras, you wanted one too. They are what the professionals use - and now we can all get great pictures too, right?
Well, photography, as I've learned over the past year with my Rebel, is definitely a learned art. It's trial and error, good subjects, great backdrops, ever better angles and a little editing as well.
Although I'd love to take a class in digital photography, I just haven't been able to devote the time, so I've managed to teach myself some tricks through online research, tips from fellow photographers and some of the great magazines that are out there dedicated to SLR photography.
At the request of several other new Rebel owners, who shall remain nameless until they decide to come forward, I volunteered to put together some of the things I've learned over the past year, with follow-up photo contests for each new tip. Then we can all vote on which photo you like best, why, and maybe we'll even get some guest posts from some professionals who are willing to give us the official word on how to get great pics. I will put a disclaimer out there that I am not a professional, nor do I think I'm all that when it comes to photography, but I do think I've learned a lot that I'd love to share!
What do you think? Who's in? And if you're willing to be a guest poster on photography tips, contact me via e-mail and we'd love to have you!
