I’ve finally decided to invest in a camera. I got myself a sweet Nikon D40. I’ve never had an SLR before, though I did do a bit of photography back in high school. This camera’s way better than I am. I hope I get better.
It’s mostly macro stuff. And some hot-air ballooning stuff (though not much of it, most of my pictures from that activity, you really had to be there).
Where can I find a good tutorial for a D40? I’d like to learn a little more. I’ve really only used the “auto” and “macro” settings. I’d like to learn to do some HDR photography.
I want to get a specific macro lens, and also something with a little more zoom. Can anyone recommend a good all-purpose lens with a good zoom?
