    Default Photography?

    I did (minimal) searching and was suprised to not find a thread about photography in ye olde misc lounge. Anyway, I got a new dslr recently and I'm trying to learn how to use it. Anyone have any pointers? Ideas for interesting subjects? Favorite photos you've taken?

    The only experience I have is borrowing a friends camera for a race last year. Here's an example of my excellent over-exposing skills, some badass sitting on the hood of an aston martin:


    help!

    I've posted my photography somewhere on here before, but never thought to make an actual thread though. I've been doing it seriously for about four years now, and I plan on majoring in it next year when I head off to school =]

    This is my most recent piece:

    Do yourself a favor and don't major in photography.

    love photography. good thread. I need to learn photoshop better and get a better handle on exposures, my biggest weakness. i have a few old Pentax cameras, a Nikon D50 and a Canon Power Shot

    digital is great, but i really do miss the dark room

    It's good to have a thread like this. My main idea with photography is always composition, like the rule of thirds, and using diagonals, and contrasting ideas/lines. I think lighting and exposure should come after that.

    I also have a rule for myself where I avoid using Photoshop to touch up shots, no matter what, even if it would help. I try to get the final image using what's available on my camera (settings, exposure) and lens/filters.

    Cool, this is what I was hoping for. I'll have to look up what you're talking about though.

    I have taken the best picture ever taken with an iPhone. Why is it the best? Have you ever tried to take action shots with an iPhone? It is not easy. Yet I managed to get my dog playing ball on the beach where I caught the ball in mid-air. No skill. Just luck.

    Yeah, well, luck pushed me first.

    I like when they draw on a piece of paper and hand it to you, and you read it and it says they are deaf.

    I also watched a scary ass bum walk into a quik trip last night around 12am and walk out with a COLD 18 pack of Natural Ice, without ever giving the attendant a second look. He never even picked up his stride.

    I was in a Circle K yesterday and a bum was attempting to court a female bum with amazing love song (didnt know what it was), whilst on one knee, arms outstretched. It was nice to see that bums still have love in their life, if nothing else.
