"ako'y isang Pinoy( I am a Filipino).........sa NY"


brooklyn, US
          

kamusta kayong lahat (how r u)
ako po'y isang pinoy dito sa NY tubong Quezon City na nagsusumikap matutong kumuha ng larawan ng mga magagandang tao at tanawin. (I am a Filipino living in NY trying learn how to take good portraits and landscapes). Ako'y isang baguhan dito.(I'm a newbie). I am a D50 user with 18-70mm lens and sb500 flash. Is it worth to buy 18-200 vr? 70-300 VR? and meron ba kayong mairerecomend na libro o DVD o class para mas matuto akong kumuha ng picture ng aking pamilya?

Maganda itong kapihan na ito.

Nawa'y pagpalain tayong lahat ng Maykapal.
(GODBLESS!)

As for me and my house we will serve the Lord....

Kumusta po sila?

For portraits, the 18-70 is a great starting point-- considering u already own it With the digi crop factor, I would add the 85 1.8, which offers suberb value, performance, and a focal length that will be your mainstay. I personally would not use slow lens (the ones you mentioned) for portraits.

Kumusta na Byron - welcome sa forum dini. Taga QC 'rin ako - so many years ago.

Okey ang 18-70 at 70-300 VR (assuming okey or better ang performance as compared sa lumang model). Very lightweight pair that would cover most focal lengths of interest. Maganda rin ang 18-200 VR pero meron ka nang 18-70 na kasing galing nang 18-200 sa common focal lengths.

Maraming mga libro sa pagkukuha nang "family pictures." Dito sa Nikonians, meron tayong bookstore; sa Barebones section makikita mo dalwang libro - How to Photograph Your Family and National Geographic Field Guide: People and Portraits. Magaling yung mga NG guides - highly recommended.

My Plan:

Get out of the car.
Get closer to the subject.
Pick the right mid-tone this time.

My favorite portrait lens I use is a 35-105 3.5.
It has a slow focus, but the sharpness makes up for it.

80-200 VR 2.8 is overkill I think unless you plan to shoot sports or fast moving objects all the time.
