Hey guys, I've just recently bought myself a D5000 in hopes of getting into fish photography and i just wanted to know what I should be doing right and what i should avoid. I just got it yesterday and i've tried taking some pics with it. What should my next purchase be? I just have the standard kit lens with it now and I was thinking of getting a SB600 in a few weeks and maybe upgrading my lens.


Heres a pic of my similis i took yesterday
1/60
f/4.5
ISO 2500
focal length 24mm

Very nice shot. An sb600 ontop of the tank makes a huge difference!

Thank you :)

I'm still not sure how the SB600 works. I read that the D5000 doesnt have the commander mode on it. how can i trigger the SB600 on top of the tank?

I want to get a good flash set up going on before buying some new lenses. I can get a Dissin di466 from a friend for a good price. Are they good for fish photography?

Heres a picture I sort of played around with in the camera
