So wow, a new Camera.

So I managed to get my hands on a neat little Canon Rebel XT Digital SLR the other day. Finally, I says, I gits me the chance to show a little of what I've been learning the past year. When I got out, one thing became quite apparent to me...

I haven't a sweet clue as to what I'm doing.

I can line up a shot nice enough, but I don't truly know or understand the aperture or the f-stop, or any of that fancy lingo that typically went over my head when I was in meetings. Now, it's not a cmplete fog, I do get some of it. BUT... I need to study. I need to learn my camera. I need to develop new habits. All things that I'm just not used to doing anymore. I've been a point and clicker for most of my camera-using life. Now, I have to DO IT ALL MYSELF. :S I used some of the preset options on the camera, but they really weren't great.
Anyway, here's a pano shot that I took tonight at Topsail beach (6 shots stitched). This is the start of something beautiful, even if I sandwiched this shot between 500 others. :P
