    Re: Excited to have a "real" camera

    Good camera choice - I have a new D5300 and an old D60, and the improvement between the two is unbelievable!

    I have two bits of advice - First, avoid the "upgrade itch" as long as you can. Your present camera is one of the best in the market, and is generally still recommended over the D5500. Having said that, my second bit of advice is grab yourself a prime lens (35mm or nifty fifty) and see how well it performs indoors.

    Other than that, my only other suggestion is never shutter when someone is holding two fingers up behind someone else's head (bunny ears!).

    Have fun!

    What program are you using for processing?

    If there is a white balance slider, you can use it to reduce the blue some.
