An external will do wonders. If your camera allows you to fire an external off camera with the built in flash you have even more options. I use my external flash on camera for fill almost 100% of the time when shooting outdoors in daylight.

What are shooting with?

Here's a shot I did at a mx race with my 20D / 580 EX external flash, set at high speed sync, to give fill.



reflectors work well outside too....but may require an assistant.

I'm a Canon guy, but I'm pretty sure all Nikons allow the firing of the external flash off camera without having to have two external flashes.

I'd get the best Nikon external flash you can afford and give it a go.

Wish I didn't see this. No hope in going to be anytime soon.

Edit: Just started reading a thread about a guy asking for tips on his first wedding. He got the crap scolded out of him for using a D40x because it wasn't professional grade. I mean, my D60 has gotten me through several weddings to date.

I'm thinking of upgrading cameras when I can find a good deal on Craigs List. I have a Nikon D60 now and I want something that has a sensor better equipped for taking darker pictures. Mainly when we have cloudy nights and full moons I want to take pictures of the sky whilst getting the detail of the clouds. Would a D90 be sufficient or should I go for a D200 or D300?. There have been several good deals for each setup the last few weeks. There was a D90 with less than 8k clicks with two lenses and several other things for $600 and for some reason, D200's in good condition have been going for less than $400 quite often. I know it's an older model but it's still a good deal IMO. It won't be for a while but I thought I'd start gather information now.

Any camera will be good for starters. Any DSLR will have what you need for a beginning class. Around here you can find d40 and d60's in a set for under $300. You really want lenses with low f numbers but they cost more than some cameras. Haha

maybe want to not buy until you get into class.

IMHO:
You're going to need a camera body that can work with you.
You're going to need an awesome lens in the 35-50mm range.


Kinda depends on what it is you want to photograph; I am from the candid school (this is genetic, I got it from my Dad who was a photographer) ... I like my Pentax K10D because I can set it up so shoot a good frame and not have to eff with it .. because shooting candid there is no second chance.

You'll buy several cameras before you get one that clicks.

Attached: shot when I was at cooking school in Tuscany. Bad lighting (backlight and and very little light inside the kitchen), white and black dress, plus subject motion .. you see a 'kodak moment', and you have maybe a second and a half to set up the exposure and the fill flash, get the flash charged, and shoot the shot. There are still a lot of technical issues with the shot the I got, but it sold a lot of travelers on taking this cooking tour (erm, I never got any bennies for that..)

But .. you need to become one with your camera to be able to really be a photographer.

It ain't the hardware.

I am a crappy tennis player, and the best racquet on the planet won't help me.
But I can make a perfect solder joint, down to at least 100mil pitch, using a hot fireplace poker.

Last wedding I was a guest at, I took my K10D along just because. I was mostly shooting the pix that the pro photog wasn't getting, or just capturing scenes. 1/4 of the pix in the final wedding album were mine. In event photography, it is really more being able to capture a moment than being able to pose a perfect frame.
