    Beginner Shooting a family event (no pressure then)

    As well as practising at home, take a look at the venue if you can, better if you can visit during the time you will be shooting there to see what the light is like and get some test shots to fine tune your settings. With those, its also a good idea to start getting an idea of what type of...

    If you only ever watch one photography video ......

    Really great video, certainly made me re-think a few things, especially when something catches my eye, i would usually take a quick shot, or decide it was nothing and move on.

    Tamron AF 17-50mm f/2.8 SP XR Di II LD Aspherical [IF] VC NIKON

    Both the Tamron and the Sigma 17-50 2.8 lenses are very highly regarded. I have the Sigma and have used the Tamron, both super sharp with really nice Bokeh, i would say the only thing that sets them apart is the Sigma feels more solid to hold and use. I would say you would be very wise to...

    Tamron 17-50

    In terms of bang for buck you cant really do much better for the price, super sharp, nice bokeh and generally a really good piece of glass. I think the only downside is build quality, although the one i used was actually pretty good in that area too. Check out some shots from it...
