Alot of people around me always say that the kit lens for the XSI is something that should be replaced. These are photos that prove otherwise.

Hi, For Close-ups and macro work you will probably get better results in AV mode where selecting a smaller aperture (greater number) gives more depth of field.

Use TV mode for action shots ... selecting faster speeds to freeze the action. Nothing terribly wrong with your early efforts though. Don't ever be afraid to ask ... the only

silly questions are the ones you don't ask. Enjoy your photography as you learn. ... Hope this helps and good luck. ... Jack.
