So I bought a Canon Rebel XT from a friend yesterday and I’ve never really shot anything with more than a point-and-shoot before so today I decided to learn how to use it. I don’t think I’ll be a super serious photographer, but it’s nice to have the option of taking my own shots for work and such. All in all, I’m pretty excited about my new camera!
