I'm a beginning photographer. I've used an old Canon AL-1 which was given to me by my grandfather. Recently purchased a Nikon N-75 with a Sigma lens kit with macro features. Any recommendations on which flash to purchase and tripod. I have looked at some Quantarays and Nikon flashes, the nikon flashes are nice, but too much $$$. I also want a nice tripod, one I can carry around and easily set up and broken down for quick shots. I basically take pictures of cars, mostly at car shows. Most of the time it is at night and indoor. Eventually I will save up and get a Nikon D70 or D100 so I can use the same lenses.
