Hello everyone!
Just got a D7000 and a 35mm 1.8 DX and I'm loving them so far! I took some pictures at a friends party at carnival last weekend. The pics were taken in raw and processed in Lightroom, just some basic stuff nothing fancy, im still very new to all this. So any kind of cc and tips (framing colors, exposure, you name it) would be greatly appreciated :D
I can tell you straight away that i don't like the way her left eye is underexposed in the first photo, but I didn't use flash, cause I can't get it to look anything close to pleasing to me :roll: Yet!

On a sidenote. I was blow away by the high iso performance of the D7000 8)
Cheers

I like the second one a lot.
Only thing is the different color temps on each side of his face doesn't quite work.

Keep practicing with the flash. You could also try bringing along a reflector since... at least in my opinion you need some kind of light to bounce out the eyes.

I Like both the images but think they need a little fill light to bring some colour out.

Thanks for the input! I have a bad feeling I will have to start saving for a flash... :D

I just love the ISO performance.... I'm thinking to swap from Canon to Nikon... :(
