Post by Scott Turner »

Hello All,

My GF has been taking a few photographs over the last few days, she wants to know a general opinion as she is taking up photography as a hobby, any advice or photography web addresslinks would be appreciated.

Please check out the album, im posting on her behalf as she is too shy to post herself:oops:

She is more than happy for you to share them as long as she gets some credit

Thank you
:D

Some nice images there, Some quite moody......I would suggest that most of the pictures shown would benefit from a brighter natural light.. this would give the image more punch, contrast, dimension, depth and a richer quality to colour..

Basically, with this kind of subject matter sunlight can make a big difference.

Hope this helps a little..

You could use flash... but take it off camera to give you some modelling. :D

Hi Tracy,
well done, some nice shots there. I find landscapes hard to do myself,for some reason they dont come easy to me but you have some good work.
Only thing i would add is study your subject more, by this i mean composition. Use natural features to lead into and around the image, Look at it from different angles and work on the "thirds" rule. The crop tool is your friend, use it lots and on still life images ie the berries, dont be afraid to tidy up the area first and get rid of any distractions. you want to pull the eyes into the main focus of your subject where this is the only item you want to present.
Hope some of this helps and carry on, you are doing well.
The g10, nice camera and very capable but pick up a cheap digital slr as well if the budget will stretch to it, canon eos 10d's are cheap on ebay now and more than good enough to learn on.

I would love to be able to afford a DSLR, but saving up for quite a few things at the moment, and trying to pay off my credit card, so it's kinda on the back burner for the moment - but hopefully by the time I can afford one, I will have plenty of experience and piced up new tips and tricks
