Hello all. I have been getting into and out of photography in spurts for a while now. About a year ago i got the itch again and did a lot of research on a P&S camera something relatively cheap, long battery life, and a decent picture quality. I finally decided on Canon SD1100 IS (IXUS 80 IS). Its been a good camera and have been working on getting better at photography. At the time I used limited information I knew about photography to buy it. However, probably could have made a better choice. Anyway enough about that. My question is how can i get better. What are some things I can do/learn to get the most out of my P&S camera? I am looking at getting a dslr sometime in the next few months, probably christmas or later, will ask more questions on that in a couple of days as I do more research. Basically with moving to a dSLR what can I do/learn on my current camera to help me get better, get the most out of it, and move onto dSLR later. Any advice for this newb is welcome and appreciated.
