There are a good few top photographers on this board, and I'm not one of them, but I do have a Nikon D50 DSLR

 

If you're new to SLR's, I would start with taking pics just using the Auto setting. The camera will think for itself and your pics will be OK.

 

After a while try using the manual settings (i.e. aperture priority and shutter speed priority) and just mess around taking lots of pics and see what results you get.

 

I know I've not said much, but I hope it helps

 

Cheers

 

Tony

Have a look at these couple of links.......

 

Ken Rockwell - D5000

 

Thom Hogan - D5000

 

You may pick up some tips from these, but as derbytony said, just set out on the P mode and experiment from there. Maybe buy a few camera magazines and read through them. If you are in the UK then have a look on CH5 tonight at 7.30pm a programme/series called How to Take Stunning Photographs. Worth watching anyway just coz Suzie Perry is in it!!!!

Just be sure to read the book that came with your Nikon and you don't have anything to worry about. The most important thing is that you know your camera and how it works and you can't just find out, you really need to sit down and read the damn book. Many people forget or don't want to get involved in that bacic thing and very soon they get bored because they are not in control of their photography and really don't have a clue what they are doing.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
