    Help!!! Trying not to panic

    I believe it went fairly well for me. The guys that hired me are pleased with the results and I was able to make a little money in the process. My biggest complaint is that I wish I would have had something I could have sat on instead of being on my knees the whole time. The knees savers I wore...

    Help!!! Trying not to panic

    Sounds like a good idea. Knowing that I can apply the jpeg settings to the RAW files is comforting. I really think I am going to be ok.

    Help!!! Trying not to panic

    I really do want to do this. I feel that I am capable, I just wanted them to understand that I am not a professional. It should be alot of fun.

    Help!!! Trying not to panic

    I have no experience shooting in RAW. I just don't believe that I have time to take a crash course. As much as I want an external flash, most of my work has been outdoors so I don't have one. Thank you for the advice though. I should be able to close enough to the subjects to use the prime lens...

    Help!!! Trying not to panic

    I was just asked to do some photographs for a sports banquet tonight at 5:30. I have explained to them that I am not a professional and they told me that they feel I will be fine for the job. I would like any advice at all about lighting. It will be inside of a gym with flourscent lighting. I...

    Tripod Alternatives?

    I have found that it is helps to treat my camera like I do my rifle. I squeeze the shutter button during a controlled exhale.

    couple of random pics

    awesome. Thanks, I'm going to to try the water again today. I'll play with the contrast a little more on the first one. On the last one, I had the ISO down to 200 which is the lowest my D100 would go. I do believe that I could step down to something more like f/22.

    Which tripod and flash for my D40?

    The tripod in your link looks exactly like the one I've seen at Wal-Mart. Many people doubt the durability of those. Just a heads up.

    couple of random pics

    Ok, This was my first time playing with the curves option, the buildingdoes seem a little to white. That is all of the building though. The ground the cross is sitting on leans to the right just a little. Something is making it look much worse than it really is. I don't know.

    Tripod or a monopod?

    I'm going to go ahead and get a tripod. If nothing else it will slow me down and make me think about my shot. I don't mind caring a few extra pounds either.

    Tripod or a monopod?

    Mostly outdoor shooting of flowers, walls, streets, people and recently water. This all came up when I wanted to used a long shutter speed to get that misty look with water. I do alot of walking around. I mostly use a 50mm f/1.8 on a d100.

    Tripod or a monopod?

    thanks guys. this I believe this does answer my question. I guess you can't compare the two. Now I need to decide which will better serve me now.

    Tripod or a monopod?

    I am trying to decide between a tripod and a monopod. I have never really used either for photography. Can the two really be compared? What would be some situations that a monopod would really shine over tripod?

    I finally did it!

    I might be blowing it a little out of proportion. I'm only 21 but, I did play some D3 college football. That did takes its toll.
