    First shots with my new D7000!

    First shots with my new D7000!
    Just a quick shot with my NEW D7000. Just upgraded my D70s. Playing around. All was taken manual with a manual Nikkor 50mm 1.4 lens. I always shoot manual but just starting to pay attention to what I'm setting..otherwise I was just setting and re-setting until I liked the image.

    ISO 160
    F-stop 2.8
    Shutter 1/50

      I do love the camera..I wanted the D700..not sure I will use the video on the D7000. But I really needed to upgrade my D70s if I wanted to keep growing as a photographer (the D70s doesn't let me completely control everything in manual mode with my old manual lenses). But getting out there and doing some shots with it...I fell in Love completely and it will work for a long time to help me grow (LOVE THE RANGE FOR THE ISO SETTINGS!!) I can not wait to keep posting pics for everyone and please any thought and feed back would be wonderful!! I love hearing peoples opinions! They may not be the same as mine but that is what is so great about photography..everyone has their own style and some people Love your photos and other Hate them and think you awful! LOL.....Battery grip will be coming soon! Need to do some shoots to pay for one

      Hey Heather, congrats on the new camera. You're gonna have fun with that puppy, eh!
      On your first picture...............personally, I think it looks a little washed out.....as in no discernible contrast. I don't think you needed to shoot it at ISO 160. It looks like it was shot in bright sunlight, so an ISO of 100 would have been better. The more light you have available, the less ISO needed.
      I'm not in the habit of criticizing others as I'm no raving expert, but I just felt the need to point out things that I myself noticed about the shot. This is what I would have done to it to make it "pop":

      What do you think? Much difference? Any difference? Better? Worse?

      Heather, I would wait on the Battery grip. I have one coming from a company in China, should get it next week. It is about a quarter the price of the Nikon grip (about $70.00) with shipping in. I will let you know after I get it and let you know.
      I am told I will not be able to tell the difference between it and the Nikon Grip, I will post pics. And give my review of it when I get it.

      Plus you should have stopped your lens down to get a greater D.O.F. Just my 2 cents on your photo.

      I do like that one as well...the photo was taken in mind for a canvas..so it was suppose to be softer because of the current images she has hanging up. Also it was completly cloudy...no sunlight really at all. HAHA I should have put this all up before A texture is going to be added to the image as well to give it more of a painting/art feeling

      Normally I would have done this but it was like this for the purpose of the final product...Its going on a canvas and she like this small depth of field where it is pretty much focusing on the one branch but has the overwhelming color of yellow too...I do like the way it is cropped by Jack though Thank you both for the feed back! I really appreciate it
