I use a Nikon D300 and my 60mm f2.8 macro AF-S lens, and my SB600 external flash with a soft box attached to it.
This is my set up for ALL of my gecko shots.:main_yes:

I believe Kristi's is similar to mine except that she uses an SB400 flash unit (which I use mine sometimes if my hands are sore from holding my camera with the SB600 attached).

I know she uses the same camera as me. When she came over to get her gecko from me, we snapped some shots.
I envied how new her camera looked compared to mine.
And I helped her with some of the settings on her camera because, whoever owned it before her, jacked up the settings some how.

Is the canon 350d a DSLR? Or is it one of those that is close to a DSLR, except you cannot switch lenses on it?
Ok, I just looked it up, it's a DSLR. See? This is why I shoot Nikon, Canon confuses the crap out of me with all their cameras!
I cannot keep track of the different names of them!:main_laugh:


You should get Canon's 60mm f2.8 macro lens, and get an external flash for yours.
If you don't have these things already.:D

BUT the good news is, though, Canon glasses is less expensive than Nikon glass.
I don't know WHY Nikon feels it necessary to jack up the prices of their glass.

I got a fisheye lens last year for Christmas. I decided to sell it to get my macro lens because I shoot more macro things than...fisheye things.

When I got it, it was sold for $450.
I sold it not even a year later, and it was being sold, brand new, for OVER $700.
I was able to sell mine used for $100 than what was paid for it.

I LOVE street photography, too!!
In fact, I'd do just that type if I had the nerve.
But I got chased once by what I think was a crack head.
Oh, she got VERY angry with me for snapping her picture, and she chased my car. I was kind of scared.

I'll have to post some of the things I've taken pics of.

I have the same camera as Rebecca. I already had the lens from my last camera (Nikon D2H). I wish I had more, but they'll have to wait. Digital is still weird for me. I used to work developing 35mm pics and I sold cameras. My absolute favorite cameras were the Nikon N90s and the Nikon F5. I still miss those cameras! They took the best pics. I'm trying to teach myself Photoshop. Once I'm better with it, I'm sure I'll like the digital stuff more. I do hate digital paper though.:( I used to use photo oils to paint black and white pics, but it won't work on digital prints. I was only able to use it on hand developed photos. I loved doing it and now all my paints are just sitting here.:(
