I did read your comment first. You went through a list of things not to do. Don't do this and don't do that. Maybe you should word it better next time.:roll:

Yet you took time to highlight it. Maybe you should read slowly next time or don't quote. :rolleyes:

I highlighted it because I didn't agree with it. You go through a list of don't do's and you say that something that you shouldn't do is something you should do??

Actually you disagreed with what you misread, but no worries. It happens.

Here's a thought, when you list things you shouldn't do maybe you list the things you should do separate.

So don't make snide remarks when its you that F'd up.

Here's another thought, everyone else understood. Re-read it slowly if you must then you'll understand too.

I've read it.You said, don't be afraid to take bad photo's and then you started a new line with don't do's.

BTW everyone? I've only seen one person comment on it.

You're right, I'm wrong and if I offended you I wasn't trying to.

To the OP, I apologize for participating in all this nonsense in your thread.

Don't not:
use a tripod.
Read the maual.
Take a class on photography
search the discussion forums
disbelieve everything you read
believe everything to read
ask for help
not obsess over gear at the expense of taking photos
never upgrade for the sake of having the latest and greatest.

Did you get the 60D with the 18-135 IS kit lens, or do you have something else?

I also started my DSLR Journey with a 60D in March. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

One thing I would say is don't get discouraged or overwhelmed. There is a lot of things to learn when coming from a point and shoot, but the results will be worth it. I made a slide show for my kid's birthday party from pictures we had taken through the year, including pictures taken with a compact point and shoot and from my father-in-law's big point and shoot (almost a DLSR, but fixed lens and smaller sensor), and it was clear every time a pic taken with the 60D, even with the kit lens, showed up.

I would say one accessory to consider right out of the gate, particularly if you plan on using the kit lens indoors, is an external flash. The difference in your pictures is amazing when you get one and learn how to take bounce flash shots.

Shooting "Green Box" is just making your VERY NICE DSLR a Point & Shoot. Learn to shoot Manual, AV, and some TV.

DO get "Understanding Exposure" if you are new to this kind of photography.


I shot my first 2 years using .jpg images. Now I shoot all RAW. Get Lightroom and Shoot Raw, & edit your photos. Wish I had started out doing that.

SHOOT, SHOOT, & SHOOT. Read, learn, study.......It is a great hobby. Can be a fun profession I have heard.

Welcome to the forum.

^ Don't leave the hood on backwards. I saw an example of this the other day.

Whyever not, I do it on all my lenses :)

frankwite, don't sweat it, we got what you meant. :)

I confess to being guilty of imprecise language. I should have said don't shoot with it on backwards. I keep mine backwards on my lenses too, when I'm not using them. If one is shooting with the hood on backwards, then it may as well be in a drawer back at home for all the good that it's doing.

joedlh,

I probably shoot with it left on backwards too most of the time, because frankly I don't need a hood for flare etc most of the time.... but I now know what you meant!! :)
