Hi I have to choose between two things, I'm offered either a new macro lens of photography classes. I'm relatively new to photography but I love it and have a d200 Nikon. I'm wondering what would be the better choice in your opinion, classes or a macro lens which I have wanted for a while.

Well what a happy dilemma to have. Not really sure-I wish I had had some basic training to get me started. A strong foundation will help you leap forward more quickly I would think. But the seduction of new toys…so much fun. Sorry can’t help more. Good luck and enjoy! :-)
