My camera arrived the other day: Nikon D7100, Nikor 105mm lens, and 50mm lens. I’ve think I’ve found a lighting set up and I’m leaning towards a particular tripod, all geared for microphotography — mine is a personality that doesn’t take baby steps.

Friday’s I’m off early. I spent some time with my camera walking around town, getting used to the feel of using it. Way back in the 90’s I had a Canon film camera. I enjoyed it, but I was limited by the ISO. The digital is fast. The lenses are able to frame tiny bits up close, which means I can take pics of people far away without intruding.

Looking at this post, the image quality from what’s on my computer to what came up here is VERY different. It looks like I’m going to have to learn about compression and adjustment, too.
