sup otap wanted to pick up photography as a hobby so picked up my first dslr today, d40... also picked up a 4gb memory card, bag, and tripod. pretty new to photography but been reading up on it a lot more the past month, and now i just gotta go out and take some pics and see what you folks think. i live in vegas and am tempted to head out tonight and try to take some night shots on the strip with the tripod, but im not sure i wanna lug that around yet, but im pretty sure my handheld night shots will probably fail, any tips or suggestions? as far as plans on future equipment: 55-200 vr lens, sb400(should i get the 600 or 800?), and maybe that new af-s 50mm 1.4 prime... and this is future as in the within the next half to whole year, and i figured this would be enough for a hobbyists to play around with.
