Taking off from this thread: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=598309 So far I've gained an SB-600, and right now I'm borrowing a 50mm AF Lens. Right now, I'm trying to shoot portraits for practice, so in using the 50mm, here's my first attempt: Fullscreen (resized) Edited (Photoshopped RAW) DeviantART Submission Gallery I realized my friend mistake was too small of a aperture, therefore not a lot of light got in. I couldn't shoot in slow shutter speed which caused the other shots to come out a tad blurry. Also, how would I adjust the Sb-600? It seems like every adjustment I make the flash stays the same. How else should I improve with these? Next are the ones I took with the stock 18-55mm lens: If you look at my DA gallery, you'll see I did some more shots outside which came out better. The second one I used the SB-600 w/Bounce card aiming towards the wall above her head.
