    New to DSLR
    hey guys, I've been browsing the forum and found some really helpful information about shooting with a DLSR. I recently purchased a Canon Rebel Xsi kit and an extra EF-S telephoto 250mm lens. I've mostly just been playing around with it to get the feel of it and I really enjoy the quality of the pictures it produces. I was wondering if there was any good publications anyone could suggest that I can pick up or good websites (aside from this forum) to help me understand all the functions of a DSLR better and what types of photography they are best suited for.
    thanks in advance

    Pick up Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson.

    This is a good book to have also.
    You might also want to look at a book more specific for your camera, XSi, like this.
    But over all I would go and look thru the books myself to see if that is indeed the book for you.


    BTW, welcome to the forum

    Website wise, there's Tips from the Top Floor. You can also listen to his podcast and when he's a guest of the Leo Laporte Show.
