Alright, so now I've upgraded from D40 (Sold) to a D80 and I'm satisfied with my purchase. After taking lots of helpful advice from here, I made the decision because I work better with that type of body, and I wanted the 10MP jump. So now I started to put my skills to more of a test. For my photo course in college, we have to make Tarot cards. I decided to go with the Seven Sins theme. So far, I have done 5 shots. I would have more, but not all my friends are comfortable with what I was looking for (more like 99.7%). So, here's what I got: http://www.flickr.com/photos/julianyoung/sets/72157618707409390/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/julianyoung/sets/72157618577321152/ http://www.flickr.com/photos/julianyoung/sets/72157618364450907/ Not all the images made the cut (at least in my taste), but so far I think I'm happy and that I took a step forward for once, instead of the usual 2 steps to the side and 1 step back into a pit of used failure syringes. We have to use a total of 3 images to merge/blend them together, if you guys are interested I have the rough drafts, but more-so, I wanted to get some constructive criticism on my still lack-of-photo skills. All shot in RAW, Nikon D80 Used Nikkor 15-55 (the so-called busted one but with some exercising of the lens the AF seems to be working), and Nikkor 70-210 (borrowing it, but may buy myself one). SB-600 Flash (Perhaps was hard to work with seeing as the place that I shot had lights beaming in different areas).
