I finally got my first DSLR camera. I started small with the Cannon Rebel xs 1000D. Any tips or suggestions??!! I have been mostly doing trial and error, and shooting in manual (I only got it late monday night).

Thanks in advance!! :D

I would recommend taking a class through your local parks and rec or something similar. I finally did that this fall, after having my camera for 2 1/2 years. I learned so much that I was kicking myself for not doing it sooner.

The class really helped me understand how to use my camera better and I can say that my pictures have improved dramatically, esp my focus.

The rest comes w/practice. Practice, practice, practice!
