Thread: Photographers? Official

  1. Photographers? Official

    I am self teaching myself photography. I've always been big on film and video, but right now time does not allow me to do bigger projects Ive been wanting to do, so in the meanwhile I am learning photography to help me with my color and composition. Anyone experienced in photography? What do you think of what Ive posted?

  2. I don't do photography myself, but I did take a class once. But if you want to know my opinion on what you posted then I think they're pretty good. The picture with the bubbles was really neat and I liked the angle you used with the ferris wheel.

    Looks like you like to experiment with different view points and lighting, I think your doing a good job.

    I usually don't care for portraits, and I really don't care for the lighting in yours. Theres also a person growing out of the back of your neck. Think about the entire shot, not just your subject. Really think about what you're pointing your camera at.

    I do like the angle at which you shot the ferris wheel. The dead space in the right of the bubble picture bothers me. I also like the different textures (bear, dog, carpet) in that one shot.

    With a "striking" piece of subject matter, like that big metal whatever the fuck you should really consider your placement. That shot doesn't really do anything for me.

    You also wear the same shoes that I do. So that has to count for something.

    Asics rock. I have a new pair of the same color i need to start wearing, i also have them in beige with brown stripes.

    Im guessing in the last paragraph you mean the venice beach sign.

    Here are some more from my Redondo/LA escape weekend, plus others.

    Like i said, i have no formal training. Im looking to buy new lenses, but which i dont know. All i have is my standard lens.

    I find the majority of serious photographers to be complete creeps and/or pervs.

    Currently in an advanced photography class full of people who know what they are talking about, but take really shitty photographs.
    Tip #1- get a tripod.
    Tip #2- lenses and special bullshit aren't as important as people think they are. Good photography can happen with a disposable camera, you just need to be aware of your surroundings/lighting/etc.
    Tip#3- take a LOT of pictures of the same thing. try different angles. different lighting. different ways of holding the camera.

    Right now im still experimenting with lighting. Half the reason i am doing photography is to learn lighting, since in film i want to concentrate in cinematography.

    the wiimote took a few tries, and even then i dont think i got it perfect. The dog picture even more. The ones ive posted from redondo and LA are some of the better ones out of 600+ photos taken that entire trip. Mind you i had the camera for only 1 day before i went on that trip, and had never touched a (D)SLR in my life before that.

    any other advice? I got the Nikon D50 kit.

    yeah that bubble picture is awesome. But crop out that dead space on the right. You can even cut off some of the TIPS sign. These aren't too bad. Josh's comments are pretty spot on. I wish you'd take the watermark off.

    Heres your shot.



    This is not a perfect crop, but you see what I'm saying?
