    The lens I have is a Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm standard lens it comes with, the sales man said it was good enough for whatever I wanted to do with it, could anyone suggest best manual settings ie aperture to take a fair photo, with this lens :dunno:

    I have a Nikon D5300 sitting in the cupboard, and I hardly use it, not sure why, bit scared of all the settings maybe :doh: So I see some pretty good food shots that look really professional.
    I have the standard 20-50 mil lens or something similar and a longer one from 50--200 zoom which I have always like the shots from seems to get this great resolution on the subject but like a blurred like surrounds if that makes sense So the Question is, what is the best affordable lens that will do those close up foodie shots of my food and oh my kids as well, and most importantly what would be the manual settings be, as I have no idea, also would rather use no flash an sure some of you know how to take killer Pictures
    I will attach a couple of shots from the Melbourne zoo i took to show what looks good about me lens, not sure what the settings where might have just got lucky, maybe need to put my food 50 feet away to take a good shot :shrug: :shrug:

    what do the hords think is the best cut of beef? Rump--topside--Round or silverside ? and would you cut your strips with the grain so when you eat it it will bite against the grain? :shrug:

    Very helpfull and thanks, this will be my next thing to try, just need to find out how to make the biltong spice mix should be good
