Went out shooting for the first time with a SLR Camera..
Used a Rebel XT
Try using a CP for outdoors. Hold camera straight. The creativity will come with time.
auto settings? i think they look pretty good
i like this picture the best
first 3 are blah the last one is cool I would get a little more of the sky in the shot and shoot it early morning or evening so the sky doesn't look so blown out.
Well after I came home last night I was pretty angry that I only get to shoot usually mid day (when it's bright as hell outside) so I ordered me a Hoya Circular Polarizer, Also Most of the shots that I shot were in AV mode.....But I realized that the pictures that turned out good were the ones I shot in manual mode just using the cameras light meter. I guess practice makes perfect (or alteast acceptable)
Anyway, time to just read some books
Thanks for all the recommendations.
Anyway, here is some more pictures of the same day:
Kinda out of focus, used the 50mm
DOF sucks on this one I think....
The bush with the damn white flower things keeps pulling my attention in this one away from the actual subject....grrr
So yeah, I need a lot of practice.
hold your camera level
Not bad. I would work on how you frame things as that can make something not so interesting look somewhat interesting. I guess that's just practice. You'll discover what works and what doesn't.
Thanks for all the responses
Hopefully I'll get my filters this week and I'll go shooting again this weekend.
Are you using the stock lens?
I stopped using my 18-55mm, it kept pissing me off. So I bought the EF 50mm F/1.8, and it's a pretty cool lens, helps out a lot with everything.
