what's in my camera bag you ask?

well let's start with my actual bag:

Lowepro Micro Trekker 100
- this is a great bag, it's fits all my current crap PERFECTLY! if i ever get more, i'll need a bigger bag- but i've always stuck with Lowepro!
now, onto the goods: the camera

Nikon D90
- i lusted over this camera. i begged & pleased with the husband. i was rewarded with a resounding "NO!" over & over. so i gave up.
so imagine my shock when i pulled it from under the Christmas tree last year (christmas 08')
"...what!? no way!"
yeah- woot!

the lense:
Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR II Zoom Lens
-i have to thank the guy who sold my husband the camera for this thing. he told my husband to nix the crappy kit lense & buy me something nicer. so he did- and i'm happy!
the lense hood:Nikon HB-35 Lense Hood
- is it bad that i've never used this? nor do i know why i would? shame.
the flash:

Nikon SB-600 AF Speedlight Flash
- i am ashamed to say that i've only used this flash...never. i'm sorry! i didn't realize how great it actually is. all the things you can do with it- aaaah! even now, after pulling it out last night, i'm so overwhelmed.
the girls on thebump photography board are experts. i sit under their table of wisdom & lick up the crumbs. hopefully i can figure this thing out & put it to good use- the husband will be grateful.

and there you go! in my humble opinion- i think i have some pretty top of the line stuff. the sad thing is that i really don't know how to use it. i've had all this for over a year & i'm just now starting to learn things. i've finally started shooting Manual instead of Auto and it's crazy.
i downloaded Lightroom & CS4 & i'm SO OVERWHELMED! i've got this awesome flash and no idea how or when or why to use it!!

i need a personal photography tutor. that would be awesome.
but i'll learn. i HAVE to!
Pin It!
