Canon T2i / 550D Tips & Tricks

Hi I’m Moose! Welcome to my site dedicated to the Canon T2i (550D). Here you’ll find tips, tricks, recommended settings and advice to help you get the most out of your T2i (550D).

To let you know a little about me, I’m a father of two (with another in the oven), I love to fish, I can eat an In-N-Out “Double Double” in sixty seconds and my passion is helping beginners learn how to take better photos so that they can be proud of the memories they capture.

The way I teach is very laid back and informal. Just imagine us sitting around a campfire. Whether you’re starting from scratch or if you already know a bit about photography, I’ll do my best to help point you in the right direction.

Getting Started

To get started, I recommend the following…

  1. Start by checking out my Cheat Cards page. There you’ll find my custom settings for the Canon T2i / 550D to help you take better photos. These cheat sheets we’re created for beginners. It essentially walks you through the entire setup for photographing things like portraits, sports, landscapes and more.
  2. Next, you should check out the Recommended Gear page. There you’ll find my recommendations for the T2i / 550D. Everything from memory cards to lenses. If you have any gear related questions, you can always ask on the forum or on Facebook.
  3. Lastly, I suggest checking out the Tutorials page. There you’ll find some step-by-step techniques for photographing everything from portraits to macro (close-up) subjects using the T2i / 550D. For additional tips and tricks, I recommend checking out the forum or visiting my Facebook page.

News & Notes

NEW! (January 1, 2014) Over the past several months I’ve been using the Canon T2i / 550D along with several lenses to figure out the best settings for a wide variety of subjects and scenes. I’m super stoked to announce the availability of five new cheat card sets for the T2i / 550D. Check them out here »
