    Nice. Wait until you start playing with flash units and bounce the light.

    At the outset, I'll say that you either need better lighting or higher exposure. And new sheets.

    Yes, I've been told that both require considerable attention, not to mention expenses, and get in the way of watch purchases.

    That said, I do live with two dogs that technically belong to my wife (mostly because they never do as I tell them, only what she tells them - they only seem to want food from me). And I do not have any kids, not that I know of in any event.

    Your next purchase should be some lighting and a micro lens. If, you have a passion for watches photography!

    I agree with Metlin about the lighting and/or exposure. Make sure you are shooting in manual mode and not auto. Maybe take a class or read a book to help you better understand. I would recommend the book Understanding Exposure which can be found here... Amazon.com: Understanding Exposure: How to Shoot Great Photographs with a Film or Digital Camera (Updated Edition) (9780817463007): Bryan Peterson: Books

    Also some advice I was taught when I started getting into photography was to look at things differently when you are shooting. Look up or down, change your angles and perspectives. If you hold it the same all the time your photos will look normal and common. Don't be afraid to run it on an angle and try different things. This is especially true when taking pictures of people and pets.

    Looking good! :)

    Tis' addictive, this photography malarkey. And before you buy flash units, get yourself the 50mm 1.8 - it's only 150 bucks or so but it is super sharp!

    And be warned: lenses can be as expensive as watches...


    PS Nikon shooter here too, D90! :)

    Congrats on your purchase! I have a Nikon D3000 DSLR that I love to use, plus a little Canon A610 point and shoot that resides in my car for those 'just in case' moments. :) Truth be told, I do prefer Nikon over Canon in terms of their DSLR's, as they're usually newbie-friendlier. :) Tell me, which DSLR model did you get?
