Nikon d40x camera, Nikon AF-S DX Zoom-Nikor, 18-55mm f3.5-5.6G EDII lens. Been reading the manual and taking photos as I go along. Last night decided to take some night photos using manual settinngs. Set the camera to (S) shuttler priority and let the camera take care of the rest. No matter what timeframe I used I always got “Subject is too dark” on the LCD. Tried (A) aperature and (M) manual and got the same things, no matter what settings I used. The only way I could take anything (except of course Auto) was to use (P) programand let the camera make all the decisions. Very frustrating. The strange thing is that when I looked at the specs for the pictures taken it was using settings I had tried manually.
Does anyone have any ideas what’s going on, what I was doing wrong, how, if possible I can disable the “warning” messages so I can take a picture no matter what, etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated. (’bout getting ready to go back to my good ‘ol 35). Thanks.

So, I’m doing my first official photoshoot for a 2009 Calander. I will be working with Glamour models and I was just wondering if anybody had any tips/suggestions when it comes to working with a lot of exposed skin, composition, lighting, etc.? I will be doing a lot of these shots outside at night time. Some will be inside though. [ Join Discussion ]

So you’re getting ready for a photo-shoot gig and you’re at a panic. Do you have everything you need equipment-wise? Have you played in your head the shots you want to cover? Here are some tips on what to be ready for before your photo gig.

1. Location Location
If possible, visit the location of the photo-shoot. Gather up your ideas in your head and take notes. Scout the area for good locations for a photoshoot. It may also be necessary to talk to someone in charge of the location to see if there are restrictions.
Hi. I’m headed to Africa for my first (and could be only) safari. I have a Nikon D40 and the lens it came with as well as a 70-300 telephoto. I want to bring a fast point and shoot. Thinking of the Canon X10. Just want to have a back up p&s. I am debating if I should buy a wide angle lens? Any thoughts about wide angles or any other equipment I should really consider for safari purposes? [ Join Discussion ]
