Greetings fellow photo enthusiasts! I'm new to this board, but it seems like a very active, fun, and educational place- so I look forward to posting and learning! I've been into photography for about seven years now, but mostly in a hobbyist capacity. I started out with a canon rebel SLR and took the digital plunge into a canon rebel DSLR, and last year- upgraded to a canon rebel xti (which I love!) For the longest time, I used all of the automatic settings on my cameras- but once I went digital, I got a little more liberal with my use of manual modes. Now with my xti- I make it a point to only use manual modes- mostly to force myself to learn . Anyhow, I'm on here looking to meet people who share the same urge to learn more, shoot better, and help one another. p.s. I'm thinking of buying a light meter- Sekonic L-358- any thoughts? Are they a must have? Is my built in meter enough?
