    Default New Kid on the Block with 500D

    guess, that everyone in CS is the same.
    Step1: get a camera
    Step2: shoot
    Step3: (see step2) and learn photo-editing software (Photoshop, GIMP etc...)
    Step4: (see step3) ~ meaning more

    another advise.... join a group and go outings once in a while.

    good luck

    1. Read the camera's manual

    2. Start off with auto modes

    3. Take camera everywhere

    4. Compose your shot thoughfully

    5. Go thru photos and look for the best ones; do not be afraid to delete photos

    6. Practice, practice and practice. Takes lots and lots of photos.

    To all newbies:
    The scene modes are very useful in getting the settings more or less correct when you're unfamiliar with your camera (or photography in general).
    However, if you just use them blindly without reviewing and questioning, you hinder your learning process.

    For example, if you set to 'portrait' mode, you might notice that the camera tries to default to as small an f-number as possible. If you did notice that and wonder why, you're on your way to technically becoming a better photographer.

    I have friends who are 1st-time DSLR owners, and they repeatedly use the scene modes without much thought. It's hard to improve that way, but if they're not seriously trying to learn, then so be it.

    It's better to read up some sticky guides in newbies corner. And start straight into Apecture priority.

    Join outings to learn from other photopgrahers, imo if wanna use auto - just get a PnS
