    Hi vL,

    Reading from what you have posted, looks like you need to attend the product training by Canon, to introduce you to to your Canon camera.

    Secondly, read the following guides.

    Also, you have bought yourself a dSLR, not a point and shoot.

    You have to master the equation:

    Knowledge of your camera + Knowledge of Exposure + Knowledge of Composition + Timing = Good Picture

    We do have sections where you can put up photographs that you have taken for comments.

    Check out the different genres available and post your images there.

    We don't comment photos here.

    Thank you in advance.

    Wah... u r fortunate to start photography at your age with a DSLR.
    Do a google search on Canon 550D.
    Should get quite a no. of info on its functionalities.
    When i was 10 yrs old, photography as a hobby never came across my mind.
    Think we collected stamps and play ping pong

    I think he meant that he has not touched a SLR or DLSR in 10 years. Not that he is 10 years old.

    Hi VL, welcome to CS

    Go through your manual, there are tons of basic information about your camera that you need to know inside there. Master the basics of shutter speed, aperture etc. That should keep you occupied for a while. Oh yes, most importantly, go out and shoot more! No point reading up on so many theories but end up never put them into use..

    Oh, Googling helps too! Have fun with your new gear

    Hi, welcome to cs!

    Visit the library or some bookstall selling photography related mag.

    Get the digital SLR photography Malaysia edition from MPH. It's cheap and good.

    Use Automatic mode, see if you like/dislike the picture and then learn why the camera onboard computer chose those settings.

    see what each of those settings do and what you can do to affect those settings to get the picture you want.

    its actually pretty quick to learn once you have your own flowchart on taking a picture.

    the more mistakes you learn from, the nicer pictures you will take in future.
    You wont see me much less remember me but i am the guy who makes you look good.
