Hi, I'm new to this place but it seems like the perfect place for me to ask since I'm a total newbie! I'm new to photography (still trying to get my head around alot of the photography terms and numbers). I want to get a digital SLR camera which is of decent enough quality so I can do the following with it - take photos of products for our online business. I figure it will be worth learning this since our business is growing and we need to take photos of products now regularly. We sell electronics and currently our products are quite small so I need to be able to zoom in and take detailed shots of things like phones, pdas, mp4 players etc. I'm sure the product range will grow a bit bigger in size but that should give you a fair idea of what kind of products I need to photograph. - I'd also like to be able to take photos outside for my own pleasure such as landscapes etc. We travel a fair bit and come across beautiful scenery / landscapes / nature that I would love to able to capture for memories sake. - Normal family photos of kids etc. I'm guessing I am going to need specific lenses for them? And what would I need for the product photography in terms of lighting / extra equipment. I saw some mention of light tents/ softboxes? which seem useful. Also if there is any specific links that deal with product photography or nature photography for a beginner they would be highly appreciated! Sorry for the long post. I'm still reading through the forum but thought I'd post to get a specific answer for my needs. Thankyou in advance!
