So I just bought a Nikon d5000 and I love it so far! I have just been messing around with it here at home taking pictures of my kitties, but I'm ready for better pictures.
For people who have a Nikon, what settings do you find you use the most? I'm planning on reading through the manual and I have a few digitat photography books, but I was wondering what words of wisdom photographers here have for someone who is just starting out on a DSLR camera. Are there any good photography websites/message boards I should check out? Any and all help would be great!! Thanks!!!
