    Just got myself a Canon rebel xt with the lens kit. I know the lens kit suck but I'm a newb. I figure I'll learn how to use the camera first before upgrading the lens. Anyways, any books you guys suggest i buy to get going since i have no clue/experience with DSLR. :wavey:

    go to the library/book store to the photo section and look for covers that interest you- get the book and read all about the artist and try to mimic/learn from his style.

    As part of the DSLR crew, you now have to take pictures of water drops, macros of your keys/cellphone/change, flowers, and pets

    It'll take some practice to learn the settings, so don't feel bad when your first few hundred pics don't turn out that great. Also, remember SLR pics aren't superb out of the box; most require some post processing to get the most out of the shots.
