Hello! I am Katie and I just bought my first canon rebel xt today. I don't know ANY thing about photography (when say anything....I mean I know NOTHING about it!!) just the passion for it. I was hoping to get any help I can get. Here's the story.... I don't know what I've gotten my self into! I was at Wal Mart buying some tulle to make my 7 month old baby a tutu to try out my new camera. Well the girl behind the counter was asking me about it and I told I was wanting to get into photography and that I was going to try out my new camera. Well she asked me if I could take her senior pictures!??! I said....ummm....I have NO experience and haven't even figured out how to use my new camera! She said oh that's ok I don't mind. So I said I would do it and got her number but reminded her again I have no experience. She again said it was ok. WHAT DO I DO NOW??? She said she wants to take some in her prom dress and some in her cap and gown. I have a million questions to ask but I don't know how to ask them. To sum it up I have no clue how to pose, anything about lighting, and so on. Second thing is my Dad has a tripod and a flash from like 20 years ago he said I can use BUT will it work with a digital camera that is a different brand?? I think he said the flash is a phillips and it worked form his Minolta old school camera. What do you think? Please help! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
