was this picture taken with a film camera?
I like how the colors came out.dunkahollik
With an SLR you will see that point and shooting wont equal a great picture. Go through this thread and read some of the tips. I think what is working for me (for I am new to this as well) is to learn the basics and all that your cam can do and then try to dupilcate shots you have seen and liked. It is the theory I have and I am trying to maintain contact with pros and people who love photography.
Good luck to you! Please post your shots as you do shoot, these guys give great ideas and advice.
I agree...I am also still new at this, I started in Nov., but I am pretty good with Photoshop and learning how to use programs that modify pictures and such. When I first started (Nov. 07) I actually wanted to learn the editing part of photography not so much towards taking pictures. But I learned that the more I knew about taking pictures, certain techniques, lighting, etc....its crazy photography is so broad and could take years just to master a part of it. Don't worry a lot of us are still learning...my advice:
- Don't just sit at home...take your camera out and don't be afraid to take pictures.
- Play with the settings, even if you have to take the same pictures over and over again.
- I've had one lens (which is the 18-55mm) that came with my camera...and just bought the 50mm 2 weeks ago.
- There are always guys in this thread that are willing to give you advice...so I just lask and learn along the way.
