Title says it all. I picked up my camera today. I was planning on going w/ the Nikon D3000 but when I was at the store, the Canon Rebel XS 1000D just felt better to me. So that's what I went with. I've got Understanding Exposure. I've got my manual for the XS. However, I'm getting overwhelmed already. Not really sure where I should start. Kind of wanting to take photos right now but it's nighttime and I'm unclear rather anything will turn out if I go outside. I think full on manual mode is a little daunting for me at the moment.
