Photography 101Posted Wednesday, January 30, 2008, at 9:46 AM

This is another one of those things that I just enjoy. I have learned 35mm film photography through college classes, reading and experience, but where I am still floundering is digital, so I look forward to getting conversations going where I can learn.
Hopefully, in the exchange, many more of you will learn as well. We see so many neat things that we wish we could show others and photography is the way.
My brother happened to have a specialty in macro-photography that opened up a whole new world. Some years back he put it down, for reasons he could never identify, but I have been the recipient of all his equipment, which is great, but it is all film oriented and film is not where I want to go.
Hours upon hours in the darkroom convinced me to put the camera down as well. Too many chemicals, bending over and working in the dark. Digital has re-awakened the photographer in me, but there is a definite learning curve.
I have played with point and shoot cameras that can do wonderful things, but I want to manipulate the shutter speed, depth of field, take macro and sports photos. The new digital SLR is where I want to go. Besides, I am told that if I go with Nikon, I can use most of my brother's lenses.
