Very nicely written. This is exactly what people feel at the start of every hobby.

Loved the last point, the fear that your equipment is not good enough is one that will never go away. No matter what you buy there will always be more stuff. And the people who create will do so even with a phone camera.

You asked what we feel... I guess the only way to solve most of this is to prepare. Know your equipment. Know the technicalities, the methods, the tricks and then take the time to shoot. And enjoy every bit of it

@amlan ...we are human beings and we always desire more...even if you give me a D4 and cz lenses I will say I like leica cams and there effects ...maybe if I have that I will say hasselblad create better pics ..there is just no end ...just like I had a manual macro lens but I always wanted a AF macro lens ...but I am sure after someday I will want a Macro lens with VR or maybe a 150mm macro lens ...it goes on

Thank you izzikio.. Would have really loved if you had made this comment there only. That way if any other viewer views it, he to will be tempted to comment on it.

Just to update - Shooting butterfly with 90mm macro was a very stupid idea...almost impossible...the above butterfly was friendly to let me shoot from soo close ...next time I am going with my 150-500 :D

strangly with my previous macro lens I used to shoot mostly at f5.6-f8 but with tamron I had to shoot at f11-f16 ...not sure why...maybe focal length maybe 1:1 ...and this is funny that the brightness remains same

[MENTION=150899]ishan99[/MENTION] I could crop 1st one but then it will come right in center and according to photo rules subject should not be in center :p ...2nd and 4th I wanted some room for movement in the pic due to direction of subjects...maybe I can crop 10% more

wow, sujoy, those shots are amazingly sharp. How are you shooting these? monopod? handheld?

Ishan Great shots, it would be great if you posted these to flickr and then linked back, that way all of us could also look at the settings and learn from you

BTW i finally got a Minolta Rokkor 50mm f/1.4 :D . Will post a couple of test shots

Did I share this? I'm not sure, so, sharing now. Clicked from a Kodak roll camera, back in 2005, from the kitchen of the quarter my father was allotted. Hmmm... Those were the days, you used to think a dozen times before pressing the shutter button, and now, press, it blindly, and edit later. :twisted:

Nice pics cyberKID... The last one takes the cake.
He he, thanks. these guys were pretty hard to capture on film, as these were wild monkeys (kids), with no exposure to being photographed. (the ones we see at tourist places are habitual of being photographed, so, co-operate in being photographed) Whenever they saw the flash fire, they used to run away, and this is the reaction that got captured in here as well, almost all of them got scared of it and tried hiding.

I shot this about a month ago. This was one of the few taken when working on "exercise". More than the picture, I feel PP is good in the work. :)
