It might have been irrational for me to spend so much money when I don’t have a job, but I figured it was time to step-up my game…especially if I hope to do a bit of travel this year.
I bought myself a fancy-pants DSLR camera…a Canon Rebel XS.
I love it. It’s shiny. It comes with an additional 300 mm zoom lens. I don’t have a freaking clue what to do with any of it.
I want to get outdoors and start playing around, but I haven’t seen any sunshine in over two weeks. I want to sit in a secluded area and experiment, somewhere where I won’t look like a total dickhead.
The learning curve is steep, I realize. I need to invest in a shorter lens for landscapes, a tripod, etc. Fortunately I have access to MatadorU Travel Photography Course, which is helping me out a great deal.
Until then, what photography sites/blogs do you follow? Linlah, Brit, Cammy, Kate…you’re all pros. Help a sistah out.
