    so i got my 20d last week, but it wasnt until today that i got my first lense, i went with a sigma 24-70 2.8. it was already starting to get dim when i got home from work so i only could get a couple shots outside, and then some of my cat because....well, i couldnt think of anything else to shoot. this is my first dslr, i just started getting hooked on photography. i got it to take action shots of motocross and dirtbikes mainly, but i also take some exotic vacations that i felt justified getting this camera.

    i am reading the manual and searching online, trying to learn as much as possible. i know nothing about all the features yet, but im learning as i go....

    thanks. im trying to do something different with each photo, like the 6th one looks bad\plain, but i was experimenting with keeping an object in focus, that is not centered in a\the pic. hopefully i can really do some shooting this weekend. im looking forward to it.

    I have a 30D, the EOS series are seriously good cameras! Anyway you're starting to get the hang of it, I am a relative newbie too. Reading the manual, or downloading it from the Canon website (www.canonusa.com) will help or just start playing around. Try exposure settings, aperture, white balance, color settings, etc. I've had my 30D for just over a month and once i figure out some of the basic settings I've really been able to take some nice pictures. Good luck!
