If you want me to tell you bits here and there I can. Oh, and make sure you read your camera's manual. It explains a lot of things that can help you get super creative. And later on if you want to buy color filters for your camera, it's like a whole new toy o_o
Oh yeah, I love color filters and I will fo sho do that. I mean I've toyed with it before, it just never completely made sense to me.. You know? I don't know how to make it focus on a certain part of what I want to photograph. It's a bitch sometimes .__. that and my camera didn't come with a manual.. Oh well, looks like I'll have to buy one.
Aww, if that's the case3, you have to get creative with which part you ldet the autofocus go with. The cheapest DSLR, that I bought, was Canon Rebel T3 (1100D). It was cheapest at Wal-Mart, and does a wonderful job as a beginner. I'm also on a budget, so it worked for me. People can diss Wal-Mart all they want, but they rock.
I have absolutely nothing against walmart xD I wanted a Canon Rebel more than anything on this planet.. But we couldn't even afford that :/ so I just have a Sony A-30 DSLR. It was slightly over $400 and even that was a stretch. Which is sad
Well, just keep saving a little each time, and cut out a few "luxuries" in spending, and before you know it, you'll afford that new camera, lol. Saving for the bigger stuff takes time. In a couple months I'm hoping to get an awesome harp, and I know I'll be half broke after I buy it, but I'll be happy. xD
