For Christmas 2014 I received the present I had been lusting after for years, a DSLR camera! My wonderful wife gave me a Nikon D3200 which has received five stars on almost all the reviews I have read so I was pretty excited to try it out.
I took my new toy along to my family's traditional Christmas party and got a few nice shots;
Rosie the dog and Kayla my other half. both are shot in 'auto' mode, I know most photographers look down on those who use this mode, however I'm yet to figure out the other modes and many, many bewildering settings that the camera has. I have purchased a set of books to begin the process of learning.
A few days later I purchased a Sigma 70-300mm macro lens to get some even more detailed pictures;
I took my new lens out on a long walk around my local area in order to try it out and got some nice results;
Obviously I am very new to DSLR photography and have much to learn, any feedback and support would be much appreciated.
