PostPosted: Fri Feb 27, 2009 6:43 am 
Dear All,
This is my first post at this forum :D. I just got my first DSLR last week but still now I couldn't get time to go outside and do some practice. But I took some pictures at my room. I'm totally new to DSLR. So, please comments and critics. Here are those:


#2 (sorry for such a weird object :lol: )


Thanks in advance....

The most important thing that I personally think makes a good photo is no distracting points. If you look on the first photo, the lighting is O.k. but my eye leads directly behind the shot to the line where the wall meets the floor. The second shot has three things that are distracting to me, (the top (wood piece) the side (metal piece) and the piece that meets the wall and counter.) If you take these simple things out the shot is great! On the third shot, I would say this is something with no point of interest. Yes the lighting is good, the WB was most likely on auto which in this case was o.k. When I take photo I see something extraordinary out of an everyday thing. For example with the knife holder, I see something that could be taken in such a way that the viewer would say WOW that is one creepy looking knife or Wow that knife holder is something I wan in my kitchen. Does this make sense? I hope you don't take the things I said in a bad way! Keep shooting! Please post more I'd love to see more of your work!

P.S. Your shots where WAY better then my first few with my D40. Keep that in mind! And again, keep shooting!

Hi MBrutus2009,
Thank you so much for your c&c :) . I appreciate your suggestions. Being a newbie, I really want that type of guide.... Next time, I'll consider those things that you pointed out. Hope you also help me in the future :D... Thank you once again....
