Default getting into photography

Hey

So, I just started a class at KCC learning about photography and taking pictures. The class is really interesting and I've been wanting to try and get into photography as a hobby. Any pointers for a newbie to this?

I've tossed around the idea of getting some of my own gear but I don't know where to start.

Thanks

I run a Cannon EOS Rebel XTI with a 55mm glass. I went out and got a new compact flash for it at best buy earlier this week. Its a nice camera, I won it last x-mas at a church raffle.

Thats all I really run. I would mostly being using it for hiking/wheeling trips, pictures of items I would sell and shows.

Later
