Hello! I am very much new to the world of digital photography. For the longest time, I was just enamored by the ease of a point and shoot digital camera, but hoping the pictures would come out half-way decent. So now I am getting married this summer and decided it is a good time to invest is a decent DSLR. I have the honeymoon coming up, which is a once in a lifetime event, then hopefully lots of pictures with family and kids. So I wanted a camera I can capture all of those moments. Anyways, I settled on a Nikon D5000. I originally liked the Canon T2i, but I couldn't pass up the bundle Costco offerred. With the D5000, I got a bag, 4 GB SD, 18-55mm and 55-200mm. I come home from work every night and play around with the settings! My only frustration is that when it comes time to take an actual photo during an event, I may not know what settings to put it on! I will probably end up taking 10 different pictures just to try out the various settings. I can hear it now... "wait one more....no one more!" hahahaha... Anyways, living in Vegas there are plenty of great photo opportunities. So I am going to venture out this weekend and post some of my shots. Critiques are appreciated!
