On Monday I bought a new to me camera. I decided to try to delve into the world of SLR. Since I have no clue about photography past my point and shoot camera I decided to buy used. So I am now armed with a Canon Rebel XTi. Everyone I know who owns an SLR camera does not use it for garden photography. So if there is anyone out there in the gardening world that uses a SLR camera I welcome any advice. I tend to do a lot of macro shots in the garden, and would really like to know how to get the best shots from my camera.
This is probably the simplest tutorial I've found for using an SLR camera.
Thanks Mark, It really is a very nice tutorial! I learned so much just from that page. I can finally take my camera out of auto mode!
I'll have to watch the tutorial, too! Mark and I have been using a SLR for a long time. It's just within the last year that I'm starting to learn the ins and outs of its awesome potential. We've got a great macro lens and I love shooting nature/garden shots with it. The bumble bee/flower pics from last summer still amaze me.
My advice? Have FUN with it. It's a whole new playground. :) ...and then, upload the pics to picmonkey and play around some more. Dig it! :)
