Hi everyone. I am new to the forum and new to digital slr photography. I have always taken pictures with point and shoot but was finding that i wanted more control over creativity. I am learning a lot by trial and error but suffice to say that I am hooked. Taking photos has taken on new meaning for and a whole new level of enjoyment. I have had my canon rebel xt for about 4 months so it goes without saying that I have a lot to learn. I mostly enjoy taking scenic and wildlife photos. I recently got back from a weekend in Yosemite NP. My photos came out acceptable given my level of experience. I met several professional photographers who were willing to give my some pointers. I loved the instant comraderie.
