    Hi

    I've recently purchased a Nikon D3100. I'm interested in taking internal shots for rooms and was wondering what lense would be best? I would like to capture the whole room(well most of it) in one shot, so would a 14mm do the job or would i need to go lower?

    Depends on the size of the room. The kit lens might even do it.

    So, which is it? Complete newbie with a D60 or seasoned professional with a D3100? I think I'm gonna have to go with complete newb.

    Well, a professional photographer is a person who choose photography as his/her profession. In some cases, that person may not know a lot. Sad, but truth. They may not need to know much. Just like those who works in an environment where gears and and settings were all preset.


    As for OP's questions, it is kind of hard to say which focal length to use. It really depends on the shapes and the size of the room. Of course, a ultra-wide zoom lens maybe better.

    I would tend to agree except for the join date. This person posted a bunch of posts overnight ranging from "I'm a pro" to "I'm a newb" and "I'm using a D60" to "I'm using a D3100". At least keep the stories straight.

    I just read all the posts form OP. And I am lost. It just like there are more than 3 different persons using the same account.

    Look under the Nikon "Troll" edition lenses. They are great for interior shots.

    Get this lens. The white color indicates that it is an indoor lens.
