I used to prefer my Sony Cybershot P&S because it was simpler to use. I was intimidated by our Pentax DSLR and I always handed it off to my husband while I used the P&S. Well, the P&S began to die and I figured after owning a DSLR for a year, I should probably learn how to use it. So here is my path of learning to use my DSLR—it’s not the camera that takes good photos, but rather the user who knows how to use the equipment to take good photos.
(These are all straight off the camera, unless otherwise noted.)
Dec 6, 2009 Began reading photography forums but I didn’t have the equipment to take indoor photos. Understood more about composition, avoiding limb chopping, and not using onboard flash. Still not shooting in manual.

I’ll be interested to see what the next 9 months brings!
