I clearly am all about my new camera... love it, love it, love it.
I wanted to share with y'all some of the helpful things I've found on the internets in my search for good info & tips on all things photography related.
To begin with, my husband
pointed out this site
to me, and it's been super helpful. I especially like his sections on How to Make Great Photos
and Recommended Cameras
, (which, coincidentally, was one of the factors in why I got the Nikon D40 and a speedlight. Also, because I love my old Nikon SLR. Sorry, Adrienne, I'm a Nikon girl. Heheh)
Speaking of cameras, my husband also pointed out this nifty feature on Canon Point & Shoots today... basically, you can hack into your camera's software and make it a much better camera than it already is (such as shutter speed and exposure time). Check out his blurb on it here,
and further info on it here
