comment Why are lens apertures usually 1.4, 1.8, 2.8, 4…?
What leads you to believe apertures are only certain sizes? An aperture can be any size. Is it because those values are commonly marked on a lens, or marketed as the largest aperture available? Technically, an aperture can be set to 1.4, 1.53, 1.697, or any other value -- they're normally just rounded to a common/simple value.

I think this question could be worthwhile if it were rewritten as "does a beginner need a full frame camera" or something like that.

D750 + lens will cost far more than twice what a D5300 + lens will cost. At least 3x more, more likely 4x more.

Yes, that's correct.

To achieve 35, 50, and 85mm focal lengths on a crop camera, you would want to use a 24mm, 35mm, and 60mm lens (or close to those options).

The 50-35 debate is regarding to a full-frame sensor. On your crop sensor camera those are actually 75mm and 52.5mm -- very different focal lengths! That means the 85 is like a 127.5mm on your camera. In other words, I think you should reassess based on those focal lengths.

comment Lightroom- How to import into same folder from different day?
If you rename the folder to the client name, then why not just import to the client name folder?

comment Nikon D3000 70-300 Nikon lens - How to get lens converter off the lens?
Is the teleconverter attached to the camera? From the wording of your question, I gather not, and so the camera doesn't matter, correct? Teleconverters have a push switch to disengage the lock on the lens, just like the camera does to remove the lens. Can you push the lock and not rotate the lens, or can you not push the lock? More information is needed. Perhaps even a pic.

comment Horrible quality of prints developed from film
You say they look low-res, is the print pixelated and blocky? What speed film?

comment Why can't I use my 64 GB SD card in my Nikon D60?
Have you tried another card? Perhaps a silly thought, but is the card capacity so small that it won't fit one photo?
