Just got the D3100, my first dslr.
I've had experience with some bridge cameras before and am really used to their super zoom to macros in one lens. Sadly I spent all my money on the D3100 and the kit lens. I'm finding really hard to get a shallow depth of field and such.
Any tips for some cheapo substitutes on lighting/softboxes and macro lens? I know I'll have to actually get a telephoto lens if I need super zoom.
Thanks in advance!

just check DIY (do it yourself) stuff ....I have made everything myself like lightbox, softbox, designer bokeh,ring flash etc...
For cheap macro for now u have some choices
macro adapters like raynox 250
cheap extension tube + 50mm 1.8D
reverse adapter + 50mm 1.8D
auto extension tubes
or just get a cheap nikon AIS or AI macro lens...

I hope I have given enough options :)
