PostSubject: The Next Big Thing   Sat Jun 27, 2009 12:52 pm

Ok Guys and Gals.
My newest dream is to learn top to bottom Photography. I am looking to make a major step in this direction very soon. I am hoping my wife will some what join in.

I hope soon to purchase a NIKON D300
Here are some pics of it!












At this time I am working on saving the money to buy the camera with a price tag of about $2000.00 once it is said and done.
I am trying to use my time wisely by reading just about everything I can get my little fingers on!

I have read Digital Photography for Dumbies twice now and looking for more.

I started this back in highschool when I took Commercial Arts, 4 Art Classes in Highschool. Also one year of Photography. I also joined the Navy as a Photojournalist. So I have some backing. I have also taking 3 summer courses in Arts and Journalism at UL the local College while I was still in Highschool. I plan to pursue this farther now!

I am not really thinking about money but I would love to be published.

So To help myself and for who ever is interested I plan to type some stuff up on here. I would hope one day to take Car and Truck shots and have them published also!

Big Dreams!!!

Wish me luck and anything you would like to ask please do.

Also as a bonus, My Uncle is a Proffesional Photographer in Atlanta Ga. I plan to make a trip out there as soon as I am able to buy the Camera!

Change is plans cause the D300 with everything I need to get started will run me to the $3000 price range and I have come to my senses!!!

I am now working on getting the D90!

Here is all the stats from Nikon
12.3-megapixel DX-format CMOS imaging sensor: Coupled with Nikon's EXPEED image processing technologies and NIKKOR optics, breathtaking image fidelity is assured.

Continuous shooting as fast as 4.5 frames-per-second: Combined with fast 0.15ms power-up and split-second 65ms shooting lag, dramatic action and decisive moments are captured easily.

World’s first D-SLR with an HD movie mode: Record cinematic-quality 24fps movie clips with sound at up to 720p HD (1280 x 720 pixels) in Motion JPEG format, enhanced by NIKKOR interchangeable lens quality and versatility.

Low noise ISO sensitivity from 200 to 3200: High signal-to-noise components and design deliver exceptional performance, even at high ISO setting.
3-inch super-density 920,000-dot color LCD monitor: High resolution, 170-degree wide-angle viewing guarantees confident image review and movie playback.

Built-in image sensor cleaning: Effective 4-frequency, ultrasonic sensor cleaning frees image degrading dust particles from the sensor's optical low pass filter.
11-point AF system: Consistently fast and accurate autofocus, reinforced by the Nikon Scene Recognition System, delivers razor sharpness in a wide variety of conditions.

One-button Live View: Easy to use Live View activates access to 3 contrast detection focus modes including Face Priority AF.

Nikon 3D Color Matrix Metering II with Scene Recognition System: Nikon's renowned 420-pixel RGB 3D Color Matrix Metering II, teamed with the exclusive
Scene Recognition System, evaluates images, referencing an on-board database of over 30,000 photographic scenes, for unmatched exposure accuracy.

Comprehensive exposure control: Five advanced scene modes plus Program Auto, Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority and Manual.

Auto Active D-Lighting: Selectable and Automatic, Active D-Lighting optimizes details within shadows and highlights, taming high-contrast situations in real time.

Durable, high precision shutter: Testing to over 100,000 cycles assures shutter life and accuracy.

In-Camera Image Editing: Creative freedom stems from exclusive in-camera image editing, featuring Fisheye effect, Straighten and Distortion Control as well as D-Lighting, Red-eye Reduction, Image Overlay, Monochrome and more.

GPS geo-tagging: GP-1 GPS unit (optional) provides automatic real-time geo-tagging.



Price tag of $1200 with a lens. Hopefully I can keep it under 1500 for everything!
