    So I've been working in the film industry for a while now and I figure that taking up still photography would be a great benifit for my cinematography skillset. I'm heading out to India in about a month, so I purchased a Canon Rebel XTi for the trip, but now I need to learn how to shoot.

    For the last month and a half or so I've been lurking these boards and learning from all the stickies and C&C threads. Now that my camera is finally in the country (I'll be receiving it today) I guess its time to come out of hiding and first off thank you guys for your constructive feedback in other threads - its really helping me learn a lot of stuff before I even touch a still camera. And secondly I'm wondering if you guys could help me learn as much as possible during this month that I have before I fuck off to India. I already have a lot of preliminary experience from working with film/digital video cameras and as I mentioned I've been lurking these boards/reading all the EDU stickies multiple times.

    Hopefully a month is all I need so that my photos taken in India don't turn out to be complete shit. I'll really appreciate the help.

    Yeah. I wanted to visit it last time I was in California so I could get a picture of myself next to the "Welcome To" sign. Unfortunately we got addicted to the strip clubs and didn't visit shit.

    Hollywood strippers are actresses that didn't make it.

    BC strippers are trying to pay for school.

    So yeah the California ones put on a better show.

    I actually don't know anything about the city. Nor do I really care. I just want a picture of myself standing next to the "Welcome To" sign for my avatar.

    I'm sort of in the same boat as you. I bought a 20D to help me make money so that I can fund a film :)

    Those mother fuckers at UPS cleared my package through customs 3 minutes AFTER the delivery guy left the warehouse. Now I have to wait 'till tomorrow for my camera. :(

    As much as I love OT, it is not the place to learn anything about photography.

    Head over to the DPReview forums.

    Yeah I'm not learning exclusively from OT. But this place has the most brutal C&C, which I like. :)

    Anyway, my camera came in and I'm learning all the basics. So far I've realized the kit lense is not very fast at all. I might need to grab one of those nifty Tamron 2.8L's before I head to India.
