Yay Liz! I bet you're excited! I'm still waiting to get me a SLR, either a Canon Rebel or a Nikon, right now I just have a point and shoot too.

You'll have to show us some photos when you get it. :D

I was going through some stuff this morning and I found my old Polaroid point and shoot 35mm camera. Hubs is going to pick me up some film in the morning and I figured that until I get my 'real' camera it will give me some practice framing my subjects, playing with lighting etc.

Very cool. Like you said will give you some practice on framing the subject, composure of the scene.

Just remember we see things in 3D, when you shoot its 2D. Some tips are when you look at a subject you will want to shoot, close one eye and look at it again before you put the camera to your eye. By closing one eye it will make the world look 2D (you see some photogs, boxing their hands to represent the frame and closing one eye). This gives you a good idea how it will look on film. As you get better you will just be able to look at the scene without doing anything and know how it will look.

Also tell a story with your photo. Like a good movie there is a beginning, middle (plot), and the end. Think of your photo this way, sometimes it helps. Something in the foreground, if it has a leading line into the frame even better (beginning), your subject (the plot), and background (the end). By doing this it will help give your photo more dimension/depth and make it look more 3D.

Thanks Tommy! I'll remember that! Never thought of a photo having a beg, middle and end
