I love the 'dandypuff' closeup shot Have you considered using a tripod, or even flash, so that you can get steadier/faster shots? The composition of your shots is generally good but some are a little blurred
You should definitely get your best shots on here!
Hey guys. I'm still very much a beginner, and haven't yet found my style or favourite subjects. I'm more technically minded than creative, so while I know how to create the images, I struggle to find them in the first place
I'm also a shift worker, so finding the time to get out and shoot is a problem. And then when I have the spare time (like right now), I'm too lazy to log off and go outdoors. Not a good mix
I love both of your work rainylake - the eagle owl photo is stunning! And Inkhi - 'daydream island sunset' is absolutely beautiful!
Those are the type of photo I want to be able to take. Guess I need to get out there more often.
Thank you ^^ I tend to get a bit lazy too when I'm off work, especially now that it's dark and wet and cold. Hopefully there'll be some great white opportunities this winter though. So we both have to get off our butts!
I have the kit 18-55mm, an 18-200mm that was given to me, and a 50mm prime. The prime is my favourite but I tend to take all three out with me.
I gotta say, I'm very tempted to get a wide angle lens - but having a cropped sensor means it's gonna be more expensive to get the same angles that could be achieved for far less on a full frame camera.
I recently bought a decent tripod so that I can do longer exposures and also eliminate camera shake (even some of my faster handheld shots came out a little blurred).
I try not to change lenses too often, even if I have them all with me. Too much time messing with the kit means lots of time missing opportunities. In fact, I should probably start going out with an actual goal in mind, and take only the kit I think I'll need.
The tripod is awesome. Couldn't have done the river shot without it - I wanted to be able to do longer exposures, which is obviously something quite tricky handheld! Even for stationary subjects, it's nice to be able to choose an aperture and stick to ISO100, then not worry whether it's too slow for handheld or not
Hi! "Welcome" to being an active deviant. I'm learning photography too. Been lurking on deviantart for years, started back when I used to draw. I gave up on that and took an interest in photography some years ago. Been a slow learner though because of lack of motivation and encouragement due to work and other personal matters. But trying to pick it up a bit more now. I love seeing other beginners and their learning curve.
