Looks, good, thanks for the samples

Thanks for the samples, these look just fine The light looks very nice and soft, too. You'll get more comfortable with posing, but it's only natural to find that sort of direction strange at first.

How's the boom? I've always meant to order that attachment, but never got around to it.

I'm also set to autofocus. I've never quite warmed up to the
manual focus on the D70. I'm coming off an old manual minolta with
a great focusing screen: diamonds and a split center circle and
brighter than the d70.

I came to the D70 from manual focus, too. The D70's viewfinder and screen certainly make manual focusing a challenge, but it's not entirely possible. At such small apertures, I wouldn't worry about it too much, though. I still prefer to manually focus available light shots, where I'm shooting at much wider apertures, but I think AF is fine as long as you trust the camera

Right now I've just become used to manual focus on the camera, so I don't mind it as much as I used to.

Keep it up!

Todd
