  1. I bought my wife a Nikon Coolpix L120 so she would start shooting more and get better results than she was getting with her Kodak P&S. Check
  2. Teach her to do her own post processing using ViewNX2 so she would get her photos looking better. Check
  3. Phase three accomplished today by teaching her the basics of processing her jpeg photos through Adobe Camera RAW and then into Photoshop CS6 to carry them to the next level.
    1. Shadow
    2. Exposure
    3. Highlights
    4. Contrast
    5. Sharpening
    6. Clarity
    7. Clone tool
    8. Content Aware Healing brush

  4. Next phase is to hand her my D5100 with the 18-105 on it and let her shoot it in RAW and then do her own post processing in CS6
  5. Then give her the D5100 and buy me the D7100

    FOR A FEW $$$$ MORE YOU COULD HAVE A 600. OR MAYBE SHE WILL GET THE 600 AND GIVE U THE 120. LOL

    Just enough competition to get her to want my D5100 so I can get a D7100
