I am a newbie to serious digital photography. I took a trip to Israel last year and decided to upgrade from my point and shoot to a real camera.
I purchased the Nikon D 40X with the 2 kit lenses and quickly realized the limitations of this setup. I purchased a Tamron 28 to 300 zoom lens and started to run into limitations of the camera so I sold it and upgraded to a Nikon D90. I have since added a Tamron 17 to 50 mm F2.8 lens and a Nikon F1.8 50 mm lens.
I started to get involved with HDR imaging. I am trying to learn everything at the same time how to take a great image Photoshop CS4 Lightroom and Photomatix. I have joined 2 camera clubs in the area and am having a lot of fun.
