As a brand-new inexperienced D-SLR camera owner, I have a few questions for those of you who more experienced using cameras!
I am looking into various lenses. Reading this article about choosing lenses really explained a LOT. My Nikon D5000 came with a 18-55mm kit lens and I also bought a 55-200mm zoom lens. Both are nice for now but I really feel like I also need a Prime Lens. I have gotten great advice from photographers Michelle, Chriselda and Jen who all say I really should get a 50mm f/1.8 or 1.4 (if I could afford the upgrade!). I am also interested in a lens for Macro photography. What would I want to use for that? If you own a D-SLR camera, please tell me what lenses you own, which is your favorite and what you use it for??
When I bought my camera last week with the two lenses, I felt it was necessary to get a camera bag that would hold it all. The bag is huge, much bigger than my purse! I am actually in need of a new purse too, so I don't know if I should get a smaller camera bag for just the camera (and one smaller lens) or if I should get a bigger bag that could dual as both camera bag and purse. Is there such a thing that is both stylish, protective and functional? I am used to always carrying a camera with me but right now that just isn't happening until I figure out a better solution. What do you use for a camera bag? Any ideas on where to look?
I bought a tripod with the camera and I would also like to get a remote control. Are there any other necessities that I should look into???
Thanks for any advice and for answering my questions!
