Wow!!!! Yay!!!! The D 300 is a great camera that is what I use!!! That is an amazing price you got there too! Remember with photography a lot of elements that have to come together to make a great photo...your subject, lighting, background, composition, etc. and very important is your equipment and the settings on your equipment! Some pros may disagree however in photography if you have a crappy camera and a good photographer you may get a picture that is alright however if you have an amazing camera and a photographer who knows what they are doing you'll have photos beyond compare!
Guns don't shoot people... I do,
all the best and happy shooting!
Your photographer friend,
