Practice practice practive. The beauty of digital is that you can delete everything that looks like mung. I'll let Nikon guys specify settings for you, cause there are a lot of 'pros' on here who really know their stuff. Actually, do a quick search for Garrett Cortese (sp?) article on wakeboarding photography.

Ha-ha, sure Jeff but that won't take long <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/biggrin.gif" border=0>

hillbilly 05-08-2009 10:29 PM

That is a good article..Now I need to read the manual for the camera so I can set it right lol. <BR>If I have it on "auto" will it do it for me? That is the setting that uses the brain of the camera right? <BR> <BR>Man I hate reading...

Good Luck---I got a d-60 last year and I still have no clue. I actually want to take a DSLR class

hillbilly 05-09-2009 9:09 AM

I think my wife is going to take a class also ? <BR>She wanted me to go with her but then I got no excuse's for bad pictures lol.

^^^ Well played Jeff. I'm going to Villa Lagos in a couple of weeks, I don't know a lot about Nikon so bring your manual.

hillbilly 05-09-2009 6:59 PM

Yeah I will. Are you going for the 1st INT event? I saw Alex quickly at Spankey Beaver but I just showed up and dropped some $ off to someone and rolled out in less than 10 minutes.

wakedad33 05-09-2009 8:28 PM

Jeff were going to Chucks INT opener, You must have seen Alex on Sunday, we left about noon, 7 1/2 hour drive home. I think he was paying off his bar tap from Saturday night <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/biggrin.gif" border=0>. See you at the pond in a couple of weeks.

hillbilly 05-09-2009 9:45 PM

It was Saturday.. I dropped off the money to someone HAHA. <BR> <BR>See ya there.

There is a wealth of knowledge at kenrockwell.com. I have used his "Owners manual for the average joe" lots of times to learn how to use my Nikon D40. He isn't just a Nikon guy though. He does articles about lots of camera makers and lenses. He is a sharp guy that takes awesome photos.
