Hello all, my name is Ray and I just purchased a Nikon D50 and I'm looking for some help. First though, I registered with this forum but did not recieve a confirmation email so I'll just be Anonymous for now.
Back to the D50, this is my first SLR type camera and I'm ready to learn how to use it. I've read the manual a few times and got all the basics down but I'm really interested in getting the most out of my manual settings to shoot concert photos.
I've been involved in video for many years working with many national rock bands and I know how dificult it can be to get photo and video passes. For me, I've been lucky because these bands trust me and my work and they know my work will never end up on Ebay or the like.
Recently I've been asked to shoot some photos of local bands and with my little Kodak DX6490 I netted some good photos which got me more work from other bands. I'm really having fun shooting photos now which is why I purchase this camera.
I've read lots of topics on this subject via the web and I know what I need to do to get great photos but due to my lack of SLR type camera's, I can't seem to get the camera configured correctly. Right know I'm shooting with the Nikkor DX 18-55 lens. Any help would be great.
