    Re: Photography

    Hi just starting out in photography and I want to do a "open photo booth" as business.
    I've purchased a Nikon D7200 and was wondering which lens should I purchase.
    Any advice would be appreciated.

Now I've got a fair few photos I'm happy with, I wanted to start a blog and share them on there, nothing fancy just thought it would be good to share them and have them all in one place, if only for my own amusement. However I'm a bit apprehensive about compressing them and losing some of the quality - what's the deal with this? This article mentions free tools like Caesium - has anyone used this or do you stick to paid tools? Is there a noticeable difference in quality? Like I said, new to this so any advice would be appreciated.
    Photoshop's Save for web and devices option (and GIMP may have similar) will reduce the colour palatte and DPI (resolution) so that an image still looks great on screen, but will not give acceptable prints. I'd still watermark images though.

    An 80mm prime (or equivalent) is the most common/popular lens with portrait photog's.

    For the type of photo booths you see at weddings, however, a wider angle is probably needed; as it'll allow more people to fit in the frame. Also, you'll want a "fast" lens (i.e. a low f" number). Aim for 1.4 or 1.8; don't go higher than 2.8 at the wide end. I'd recommend sticking with the kit lens whilst you're learning the ropes, though.

    You might want an off camera flash also. LED panel lights are a popular choice due to their low cost and low power consumption. However, these cannot be used as strobe flashes, as it seriously reduces the life of the LEDs.

    I have a bland new Nikon D32 but don't use it thinking about selling it, 18mm to 55mm and 55mm to 200mm lenses kit
