Topics I've Started

50 Mm Lens/1.4

31 January 2010 - 03:25 PM

I recently purchased the 50MM/1.4 lens for my Nikon D60. I read a lot of the posts here on this and thought it would be great, but obviously I have not figured out how to use it. I have been trying to take pictures w/o using the Auto mode and using the Aperature settings. I am finding that my whole picture is blurry a lot of the time. If I move it to Auto then everything is clear, including the background that I'm wanting to blur. Is there a simple explanation as to what I'm doing wrong. I've even switched to manual focus and it looks good when I look through the eye piece.

TIA,

Photo A Day/week Blogs?

21 January 2010 - 09:21 PM

Does anyone have a list of blogs/websites that are doing the photo a day or photo a week challenge that are interesting? I love looking at sites that are doing these type of challenges. I am really trying to learn how to take better pictures and get inspired. I see so many photos that I would never think of taking.

Thanks.

Has anyone seen or subscribe to Digital Photography Secrets? It was recommended in monthly photography e-mail I receive. Before I subscribed I wanted to see if anyone knows anything about it.

Thanks.

Photographing Disney

19 December 2009 - 04:23 PM

I just found out that next year, after Thanksgiving, I am going to Disney. I was wondering if anyone had any tips/advice on getting great photos at Disney or if anyone knows of books, blogs, etc. that has tips/advice on getting great photos. I know it is a year away, but I want to practice before I get there. I'm not real proficient at using my Nikon D60 yet.

Thanks.

Cold Weather

16 October 2009 - 04:40 PM

Can someone explain to me what I need to do so my camera doesn't fog up when I take the camera from the house outside to take pictures in cold weather. I know I've read what I should do, but I cannot remember where I read it.

Thanks.
