Last spring I purchased a bundle from Costco that was a Nikon D5100 with two lenses, a Nikon DX 18-55 (3.5 I believe) and a Nikon DX 55-300 zoom - 4.5. Kit came with a simple bag and tips book etc.
Anyway, grew up with parents that years ago competed locally and internationally in camera club competitions. Photography was in the family for sure. As a teenager I had my first starter camera, a Pentax K1000 and had a few lenses and nice flash etc. In my 20's and 30's kids came into life and point and shoot became easier etc.
so now in my mid 40's I have gone back into photography, specifically shooting friends and family in sports action on the lake. Water skiing, wakeboarding and hydrofoiling.
Looking to improve shot taking, as well as post processing (no skills here).
I maintain a site : blmeanie.weebly.com/bluemedia.html
Will try to be active here and learn as I go.
The two photos I attached, one was the jpg pulled off (have since changed to RAW) and the other was brightened/colored up a little in gimp
wishing you the best in your journey into "Togdom"
I'd say watching 1 Greg Cazillo Video a week from the Archives as on-going "training" to be a GREAT primer on how to improve technique.
Like the man says--- Keep Shooting.

There are some options to roll into post processing. Adobe Lightroom will be the way to go in my opinion. They dropped prices by the way.
There is some software availble for free or a small price, but i think you will have to upgrade sometime to Lightroom...
