Shortly after Gianna was born my mom surprised us with a Nikon D5000. I have always been obsessed with taking pictures to document every event and pretty much every room in my house is decorated with pictures.
But while I love my camera I don't really know how to use it! I mean sure I can take pictures but as far as really know the settings on my camera and how to play around with it I'm clueless. The lens we have on it is the basic lens that came with the camera and the one thing I don't like about it is that if I wanted to take pic after pic to document Gianna walking the lens is too slow. The hubs does know alot about using slr cameras and even playing around with the setting doesn't change the lens speed.
At Gianna's one year pic session yesterday I asked our photographer about it. She suggested a 50mm lens with a 1.8 g. So that is what I'm looming at to purchase. Because while I love my slr I've Been using my digital point and shoot Leica camera for everything. It would be nice to actually use my slr camera for everything since I wanted it for a reason
And that being said I def want to learn how to properly use my camera. So question for y'all out there, how did you learn how to use your slr camera? Did you take a class or find any resources or manuals that helped. Clue me in!
