I just started reading it again for the 3rd time. I'ts been about 2 years since I last read it and even though I "know" the stuff, I keep going oh yeah, I forgot about that.

I SWORE I had read it. Then I couldn't find my copy so I looked up what it looked like and had never seen it before! I finally ordered a copy. I've been back and forth and all over in it. I knew a lot of what was in there, but I'm trying to cement it in place.

Thanks for all the help and advice. I think I will check out that book and play around with the manual settings on my P&S before I go any further with the SLR. If it turns out that I'm too dumb to figure it out on the P&S, then I will have saved myself some money! Besides, I'm concerned that I will loose my zoom capabilities with a starter SLR. Right now I have a 20x zoom and LOVE it. It looks like the starter level SLRs don't have much zoom at all without buying another lens. And that's more money than I have at the moment. My P&S also has video and looks Like I would loose that as well without more $$$ involved.

I think that's a great way to start. Don't assume you won't get any zoom on a DSLR kit though. It depends on the kit you choose. You can get the Canon with a very nice 18-135 lens now. They also sell the kit with 18-55, but I hear the 18-135 is quite nice, so I'd find that kit.

Also, my friend found a kit with her Sony and the 18-200 and is quite happy with that.

Have fun learning!

p.s. Can you tell I love spending other people's money?????

I think some of the shots I took must've inspired others to take them too. At least thats my sotry and I'm sticking to it!

Yep, I must laugh at myself or I might cry!

No problem. I started out doing manual on my P&S and then went to the SLR. It's much easier on the SLR though. I wouldn't get rid of the P&S totally though. I kep mine around and am thinking of getting a newer model, just can't justify spending money on it right now.

Since we're talking pictures and I am sitting here editing some, I thought I'd share one I just did. It was kind of a cool shot...at least I think so. I did not take it like this on purpose, but I had focused in on the buds...well I was trying too and there was a lot of forground leaves and stuff and it just came out kind of cool.

See, there's that fuzzy background again! That's what makes the picture look professional IMO. Great shot!

The last picture with Claire by the tree is so professional looking. Those shots with the short depth of field are my favorites. I don't know if I want to go to a DSLR. I have a Canon film DSL that I haven't used in several years. I was into photography quite a bit, but the digital P&S are so easy to use & carry. I don't want to carry around all that weight any more.

Here's hoping that you get to go on the TA trip. Your DH sounds like mine when it comes to things like that.
