Hi, my name is Annette and I just purchased my first DLSR. I started getting into photography about a year ago and started with the Nikon S8200 compact digital, which by the way, is a great little camera. But as time went on my passion grew and I wanted more. I finally just purchased the new Nikon D5200 and I love it. It is so different from a regular compact and I am already becoming overwhelmed with learning all the neat advantages of a DSLR. I wanted to introduce myself and say I am open for any tips and tricks anyone has to share. I am at best still a beginner and hope to learn from all of the more experienced photographers around here!
