Cute tips for putting an old t-shirt to good use here.

'The world can only be turned right side up by the conscious collective activity of those who construct a theory of why it is upside down. Spontaneous rebellion alone is not sufficient. Without adequate advance preparation, the old world will simply reappear after any rebellion, embedded as it is in the psyches of the fabled "people." An authentic revolution can only occur if there is a coherent and practical mass movement of self-conscious individuals in which all of the mystifications of the past are being consciously swept away.'

Well the great thing about a digital camera is now you have it, it costs nothing to practice. Not like in the old days when you'd wait a week to see your prints, only to find you left the lens cap on for the whole reel, or something equally dumb

There are four main rules to practice:

1 Do it... as often as you can, practice by taking pictures of the TV, the hamster, anything that will sit still long enough to focus on.

2. Record what you did. If you screw up, you'll know what to avoid next time; if you get something fab you need to know how to repeat it, even if you dont understand it yet. Practice takes practice!

3. Try everything. Unless you are really ham fisted you arent going to break anything, and all those settings are there for a reason.

4. Have fun, and don't let nay sayers cramp your enthusiasm. Every one had to start somewhere.
