    And these were the first pictures I took with it. I just wanted to share, it is my first dslr. So I am definitely a Newbie.... LOL

    I know the lighting is bad, but I am trying to learn!

    Thanks for looking.

    Congrats on the new camera John, you've made a promising start here.

    Your model has a nice toothy grin going on here!

    Welcome to the cafe! You have some nice separation of the subject and background in the first one! Post often - you will learn lots here :)

    congrats on the camera i am planning to get the D60 i am also a newbie
     
  5. The lighting is not too bad , I would say you were using matrix metering since the shadow area is quite bright and there are some blown highlights .
    Next time take two shots of each , one in matrix metering and one in centre weighted and see the difference - you may prefer the results from centre weighted because the highlights will be preserved and shadows will remain 'shadows' .
    That will help you learn as well - welcome to the cafe and post more pictures so we all can learn from the comments :smile:
