NPhoto - - Over To You … -

I’ve al­ways loved pho­tog­ra­phy, and have now taken the next step by sign­ing up to an online course, and buy­ing my first D-SLR, a Nikon D3300. I no­ticed your mag­a­zine in Sains­bury’s, and de­cided to give it a go. I spent an en­joy­able hour read­ing through, and although I ad­mit I was baf­fled by the tech­ni­cal­i­ties and a bit in­tim­i­dated at all the ex­pen­sive kit, I was also com­pletely inspired! I hope I can pro­duce qual­ity like some of the reader pics in the mag­a­zine! Can’t wait to get started. Acay­cia Lewis, Not­ting­ham, Eng­land Welcome to the world of Nikon pho­tog­ra­phy, Acay­cia. We try to have some­thing for all lev­els of pho­tog­ra­pher in N-Photo, and our sim­pler tu­to­ri­als are a good place to start, as they’ll take you step-by-step through mak­ing an im­age, and you’ll ab­sorb in­for­ma­tion about the tech­ni­cal side of pho­tog­ra­phy as you go. Tom’s tu­to­ri­als on pho­tograph­ing shad­ows (page 54) and mir­ror­ing a skyline (page 60) are ideal. You don’t need fancy kit, though we do all love it! The im­por­tant thing is to have fun with your new hobby, and to en­joy all the cre­ative op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Very con­sumer build. I will wait to see how snappy the aut­o­fo­cus mo­tor is at get­ting on tar­get. I don’t ex­pect much to be hon­est.

No men­tion of the 35mm f/1.8 – shame on you for not men­tion­ing the best lens I own.

The Sigma 10-20mm is not on that list. Ev­ery DX pho­tog­ra­pher that I know has that lens.

I’m par­tial to my Nikkor 18-70mm lens, which takes ex­tremely sharp photos. I also have the Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D for por­traits, and the Nikkor 55-200 mm with VR.
