Because you can't do this with your 18-55 or 55-200

Karen,

Because you can't do this with your 18-55 or 55-200:

shot with and all manual 50mm f1.4 pre AI Nikkor....you can get one of these for a song ($25-50) if you can find some one who is even bothering to try to sell it.....these will just slap right on your D60 and then you just put your camera in manual, guess at the exposure, adjust by looking at your hisotgram, and focus by eye...this is REALLY fun actually and takes you back to the real basics of photography, and everyone should do this just to get a feel for how much intuition was involved in photography in an earlier age.....after a while you get really good at just knowing exposure.....and it is really calming to shoot this way...

just a suggestion

Fred
