A Beginner's Photography

These are just a few random pictures I have taken. Sorry if the images are big. I don't have the best camera, but I am getting a new one for Christmas. Anywho, I love hearing constructive criticism.





I apologize for the bad quality. They are actually a lot better quality than this, but the forum made them look blurry. Oh well. You get the jist. :)

I like these all . How long you've photographed? I mean IMO you're pretty skilled.

Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

I have been doing it for about eight months. Never really got serious with it until lately.

Wow those are really good! The only I would sujest (from photography class) would be to watch cutting stuff off like the last flower and the cats ear. Other wise there REALLY good! I LOVE the last one of the horse.

Very nice! I've looked at some of the stuff you've put on facebook and they're really good.

I think cutting off things like that will turn it more artistry. So for me, it doesn't look bad at all. But everyone has her own opinion .

I agree. It works better for some things to not be entirely in the frame. For the flower it works well and I think is more effective that way than it would be if you had the whole flower in the frame. For the cat I think it would be fine either way.

I agree with the last two posts. Cutting things off is fine by me. It shows the viewer what you're trying to focus on or how you interpret what your taking a photo of.
Amazing work.
