    most basic gear/must have's

    i'm willing to spend probably 500-600. i have zero in it right now as everything is pretty much hand-me-downs. i have a decent Crumpler bag that i ordered a while back and never used. i'm just trying to get opinions on lenses. If it were -MY- rig i would just buy a 24-70L and call it a day...

    first shot at HDR... ever

    I've never done this before, never even been a big fan of it. I do not usually do much post shot adjusting. Well i had my house to myself tonight, a six pack and about 30min of pure frustration this is what i ended up with. most likely my first and last go at HDR unless i can find a way to...

    Shooting in the rain

    ive done it many times, however i dont go grab my camera and run outside if its raining. if your smart and keep a rain cover in your camera bag i dont see why you should shy away from a little rain.
