    Been fiddling with this D60 for a couple days now.

    All shots taken in manual mode, onboard flash, and the kit 18-55 lens:

    5.(I know, way under-exposed.... It's a streetlight behind the railing, and a path dug through the snow on the deck, just looking for composition advice. I'm going shopping for a tripod tomorrow.)

    I don't know.....

    There is a camera shop in the next town over, I was thinking of going there. I guess I'd get a much better one online for a better price... I just want something in the 125-150 buck range if possible and for it to be sturdy and a quality piece. I realize I COULD spend a LOT more but it's not in my budget right now.

    Thanks for the compliments, I agree that the fruit bowl is boring, but that was about my 3rd picture ever with the camera and I was playing with f-stop/depth of field. I'm disappointed with myself in the last one for not using a longer shutter speed. I did shoot one or two "duplicates" of that shot but my hand moved the camera(it was resting on a phone book) and they blurred. Hence the need for a tripod:)

    I like the one with the Christmas ornaments and the night shot! The two water splashing ones have promise, but try it in day light or use some other kind of light source. I can tell you used the camera flash which makes it look kind of cheap or something. Im not one for camera flashes unless it's used tastefully. Of course I am still learning about using flashes. I know nothing of flash or speed light tips.

    Keep being creative!!!

    Thanks for the comment... Just from using it and playing with the settings I'm learning that what seems like decent light to the human eye could very well be nowhere near enough for the camera... At least with this lens.
