I was hired as the photographer for a Sweet 16. Normally, I work under someone else, but this is the first time I'm on my own so I really want it to be perfect. The party will be indoors from 7pm-10pn. The room will be relatively dark. I'm using a Nikon D5100. I have a 50mm 1.4D lens and an 18-200 lens. I also own a flash. If someone could recommend the best settings for me to use I would be extremely grateful.
D5100+50mm 1.8D /Nikkor 18-55mm + Ext. Tubes Hey professionals, can you please advise on these, 1. D5100 + Nikkor 50mm 1.8D + extension tubes 2. D5100 + Nikkor 18-55mm GII ED + extension tubes for a "macro shots on bugs and flowers" im budget tight person. What's the good combination?

So, as part of my gear acquisition syndrome ..., and prompted by some other recent threads... Seeking thoughts on my (over?) analysis (brain dump) of the merits of D5100 vs D3300 vs D3200 wrt low light/high iso & noise, sharpness with kit / consumer lenses, viewfinder, AF performance, ergonomics & build, other things. The 'problem' - if I were to spring for a 'new' camera which one of those would I go for, noting in Australia the D5100 would only be available as a refurb or used. D3200 and...
Hi, I've spent the last few days reading endless reviews and am seeking some guidance. I currently have a Nikon D5100, Sigma 10-20, Nikon 18-105, Nikon 50 f/1.8, Nikon 70-300. Lee 100mm system. Manfrotto 190CXPro3. I'm a constantly learning enthusiast into Landscape & family & club competitions. Considering selling the 10-20 to fund a Tokina 11-20 f/2.8 (I love UWA and would like to dabble with some occasional astrophotography). & upgrade to the D7200 with perhaps a Sigma/Tamron 17-50 f2.8 or...
