Pictures turn out different then what I take



I am extremely new to cameras and don’t much, I have a EOS rebel T100 and everytime i take a picture (on any setting) while it’s zoomed in the picture turns out cools you different. it’s suddenly lit up, not focused, and not zoomed in. Any advice? I just wanna use my camera.

Thank you in advance. 



Hi and welcome to the forum:

it is important for to get some basic photographic knowledge under your belt.  So, invest about 2 1/2 hours and watch this introduction to photography by Chris Bray, a National Geographic Pro.  His course will give you the basics in an easy to digest format.

Learn Photography [Full Course] by Australian Geographic Photographer Chris Bray - YouTube

Canon also has a series of tutorials on using the Rebel series of cameras: called EOS 101

EOS 101 How To - Overview - YouTube

After you have watched the Chris Bray video and some of the  Canon ones, go out and try to use your camera, applying some of the techniques you have observed.

Then, come back with any questions you may have.

Good luck

cheers, TREVOR

Welcome to the world of photography. I found a book, written especially for me...Digital Photography for Dummies by Julie Adair King; available at Books-A-Million. It gave a lot of info to get me started. I still refer to it for specific questions along with the manual. Two other things that are of value: Youtube and this community. Wish I had known of this community about four years ago when I started.
