    C & C please.

    I went out last night to shoot some of the moon and unfortunately right as I went out clouds started rolling in. I was able to get one shot off, and then started focusing on the pond. This was my first time doing really slow shutter speeds and it was super dark, so I had to do all the focusing...

    Shooting a horse show tomorrow, have some questions.

    It's just for fun, so no pressure on me, which is good because I'm not at that level yet, but I have a few questions. It will either be completely indoors or partially covered, but it is lighted, but I know for a fact that I won't be able to set up a tripod or an OCF. My main question is what...

    Shooting in a cavern?

    The cavern has about 98% humidity. I'm going down soon and I wanted to take my camera, but I'm worried about the humidity affecting the camera. Do you guys think anything will happen?

    I'm going to be photographing an event at a dog show this coming weekend and I want to let people be able to buy them off my site if they so choose. What would you guys recommend that I use to allow this?

    3 Orchids for C&C

    Took these inside at my mother in laws house. I wanted to get outside but it was raining, and we all know what rain does to cameras...LoL. Anyway, I decided to experiment with OCF for the first time, so I'd really like some C&C on what I could do better with the flash, but C&C in general would...

    Best portrait lens?

    An ex coworker of mine gave my name out to a friend of hers and now she wants me to do some family portraits for her. Right now, all I have are my 18-55 and 70-300. What's a good lens that I could get? I have a D5000 and I will be working outside. Oh, and fairly cheap would be nice.

    Best tripod?

    I had a cheap tripod that I got way back with my very first camera and it finally broke. It was a 40 dollar one from Sony. Anyway, looking to get a new one and wanted some recommendations. Have about a 200 dollar budget.

    What am I doing wrong?

    I just received my extension tubes, so I thought I would try them out on some coins. I am using my tripod and my remote shutter release. Everything looks perfectly in focus through the viewfinder, but when I view the final picture it looks OOF. Is it the lighting? Could it be shutter...

    Baby 0, Sweet Potatoes 1

    Just took this. This is my 5 month old daughter after she just polished off some sweet potatoes. Yes, she actually did get some to eat...Anyway, I was wondering what some tips would be to make this more than just a "snapshot". Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Looking for a good entry level flash...

    Is the SB-400 Speedlight a good flash? I was looking at the SB-600 but it's just a little bit out of my budget at the time. Would the SB-400 be a good substitute or should I save up a bit more and get the SB-600?
