My Hand at Photography Thread

So I'm going to start posting my photos here. I really want to do photography as a side job after college and I want to here what you guys think. I don't have one of the best cameras, but I love this new one and it's the most expensive one I've had. Here are some I took form today.

I actually really enjoy looking at your photos. :) I also wanted to say, you don't need an expensive or "good" camera to take good photos. You just need to learn how to use the camera you have, whether it be a $100 one or a $10,000 one. I have taken some pretty horrible pictures with good cameras. :P Good luck!

Lovely :)

I have a small business and do custom lifestyle photography CecilliaB.com/blog

I suggest you learn your camera as someone else said. Learn how aperture, shutter speed and ISO all effect exposure and how your aperture effects your depth of field so you can create better bokeh (in focus subject, soft background). Also, I notice that you center allot of your photos. Do a search on the rule of thirds and work on applying it to create stronger and more interest compositions!

Thanks! I know, it's hard to get out of the center point pictures. lol
