The Canon EOS Rebel T1i Multimedia Workshop is an excellent resource. It consists of two videos and a short book. It is clear, concise and not as overwhelming as a lot of other resources are for beginners.

One DVD covers specific camera features and functions.


The second DVD is all about taking great pictures. It shows you how to compose pictures, choose the best picture quality settings, how to use the flash, and more.


The book zeroes in on how to take great digital photos and covers basics without overwhelming you.


The book has four chapters:

  1. Digital Photography Basics
  2. Getting the Most From Your D-SLR
  3. Your D-SLR Camera
  4. Creative Controls

They even include a Canon EOS Rebel T1i Quick Reference Wallet Card!


Camera arrived!

The Canon T1i has arrived! I ordered it from Amazon.

The only cameras I have ever used are the  “point and click” types. I’ve managed to get a few good photos but I’d like to learn how to take much better photographs. I’ve recently retired and I’m looking forward to having some time to devote to this learning journey.

I’m making the leap to digital SLR photography and boy do I have a lot to learn! I have looked for beginner blogs but haven’t found any. Most are written by those who have varying degrees of knowledge but none by absolute beginners like myself who have almost no knowledge!
