Dont feel dumb, computers frustrate me too and I work with them for a living!

I edited my last post to add instructions but you may have replied before my edit and not seen it.

You need to use the link to the picture itself, not the flickr page that displays it.
in flickr, right-click the image. a menu pops up. Choose the size you want (usually "large" or "original"). Then when the picture re-loads in that size, right-click it, choose "Copy image address" (or whatever your browser says that means the same thing) and then paste that into your poodle forum post by using the image button on the toolbar.

Mama2FourAZ & Spoowhisperer: how do you get such perfect lighting in your pics?

Mama2FourAZ - your pics of Lilly are always so sharp and crisp (studio shots).

Spoowhisperer - I love the pic of Kai relaxing by the fire in the Raptor thread.

What camera/lens did you use and do you do any followup editing?
NOW.... I HAVE TO SEE THOSE WONDERFUL PICTURES THEN.... hehehehe please post them! I love being "THE photographer" and Lou loves to be the model...LOL but I have not edited her photos, even though sometimes I wish I did, to show her actual color, that is not show accurately on the pictures... Im just lazy I have photoshop, maybe I will edit them sometime... please post these awesome pictures! :-D

SO excited. I finally got a decent camera! My family all pitched and and presented me with a Nikon d3100 for my birthday last weekend.

Great right? Well, yes except that I still don't have much of an idea on how to use it except for putting it on auto and snapping away. But I'm learning and reading tutorials and guides like a madwoman.

I could use a little advice on the following:
1) Do you have any recommendations for great books/tutorials? Especially pertaining to dog/animal photography? (links please!)

2) It came with an 18-55mm lens. I can't afford to go out and spend $500 on lenses right now, but does anyone have any recommendations for what would be the next best purchase for this camera, or any specific filters/add-ons I should look into? (links to best products would be helpful)

3) I'm looking at editing programs. I am moderately competent with basic photo editing software (have used Corel PSP and Photoshop Elements extensively in the past) and clueless when it comes to programs like the Adobe CS line. That's really all that I'm familiar with. I'm operating on a macbook and looking for something reasonably priced (in the $1-200 range) to use to do basic photo editing. Any suggestions?

Thanks! I'm super excited to learn more!

Congrats on your new camera!

Whether you need another lens depends a lot on the photos you take and what you do with your pics. You dont have much zoom with that lens, but you may not need it. Will you mostly take pics of your poodles at close range? If so, then no need to buy a long zoom lens. Long zoom lenses are good for sports photography and wildlife photography (and dog agility).

If you print out your pics as large prints, a higher quality lens than the "kit lens" you got with your camera will give you much better results. If you tend to only look at your pics on the computer, or make small prints, a better lens will still give you better results, but it wont make as much difference because you'll be looking at reduced versions of the pics and that makes the less quality less evident.

Dont forget to make copies of your pics and edit the copies, so you have unaltered originals to go back to if you want.

Yep, mainly just photos of the poodles. Probably not a lot of really long distance stuff. I'm still trying to decide on an editing program. I'm contemplating giving Lightroom a test run and seeing if I like it at all. Any thoughts?

I got lightroom a few months ago but havent ever installed it. I bought it because it came with a coupon for a few hundred off photoshop. I know lots of people like lightroom though. Ive seen demos.. You use "brushes" to make changes, like a lightening brush, or a smoothing brush or whatever. So its very different from photoshop. I dont think there is a way to select and work with a specific set of pixels, but I could be wrong. I think you can download a free trial off their website. Other than photoshop, it might be the best editing program out there.
