Awesome! Post your first good shots - we'd love to see them
I will! As of now im experimenting with different light sources, angles, tones, etc. I've got on okay shot on my billiard table, I'll spruce it up a bit and post it.I've uploaded a shot i like, its at the bottom of the post.
As for photo editors, you can't go wrong with iPhoto or, for a lot more power, Aperture.
I have found iPhoto to be pretty good, for sharpening and red-eye reduction mainly. I was going to look into aperture, but it reccommends 1 GB RAM, and I'm only on 512 MB. When I upgrade to 1GB, though, I will most likely look into it. Thanks.
You might want to give a look at Adobe's Photoshop Elements for something simpler and less expensive than full Photoshop to get started with. iPhoto is great on the Mac
Thanks, jrrjrr. I completely forgot about this program, but I'm glad you reminded me! I'm downloading it now, and will begin experimenting with it. Thanks.
Thanks you guys for suggestions, and I'm very happy with the camera. When I get a nice shot together, I'll post for you to checkout and comment. Also, I'm thinking of getting a telephoto lens for it. This one
or This One
. Does that look like a good lens? And what kind of lens should I purchase for doing upclose and shots that are heavily zoomed in (like the classic shots of lady bugs on leaves, etc)? Thanks.
