DSLR neophyte

Greetings fellow PFers,

I'm a complete amateur from Northern Germany. I have been fascinated by photography for many years, but only quite recently have I been able to afford a DSLR, and having purchased my first one (K-50 with 18-55 kit lens) just a couple weeks ago, I have much to learn on cameras, lenses and photography theory.

I mostly enjoy natural photography and concentrating on tiny details (such as buds, a drop of rain on a leaf, a ladybug sunbathing on a tree...) and, as I will be spending a week deep into the Arctic Circle in December, I am also looking to learn about night photography as I aim to come back with some poster-quality pictures of the spectacularly beautiful Northern Lights

I am hoping this forum will prove to be a richly formative experience to help me get to know my camera and lenses better, and maybe to become a better photographer too.

Welcome to the forum, there's a great lens review section here and many discussions on lenses that may help you on that trip in December.
