So I've always liked digital photography but I never really had a camera that was nice enough to have quality results.


My first digital camera was actually my parents Sony cyber shot and that was back before 2006.


Later I got my own digital camera also around 2006. I think it was Sony and it was 4.1 mega pixels!


Then flash forward to this year. At the beginning of this year I got a Olympus Z-12 camera and then I started learning about professional DSLR cameras.


I always wanted to make nice HD videos on youtube as well as having a camera that can take great pictures. So after months of researching cameras I finally decided to buy a Canon T2i!!!


The camera package cost me around $400 and it came with a Canon 2Ti body, with the 18-55mm lens, 80-200mm lens, a flash, battery grip, 5 batteries and a memory card!


I'm very excited about take pictures and getting into digital videos and photography. I came here because I wanted to find a nice forum to post pictures in and talk about digital photography.


So here are two photos that I've taken thus so far. Since I'm not a picture expert yet feedback and constructive criticism would be nice.

Also does anyone know if there are any other good photography forums out there as well.

Welcome to POTN! What do you like to shoot? Be sure to look over the "Sticky"s at the top of each section.
I kind of like the last one, but wish that the letters were a little sharper.

Welcome! Read some stickies with lots of useful info. Learn about "depth of field" (DOF) and the exposure triangle (relationship between aperture, shutter speed and ISO values). This bit of "theory" will help you better understand the capabilities and limitations of your camera and with a lot of practice - attention to composition - will make you take better picture.
Not sure about #1 but the DOF creates an interesting pattern.
#2 and #3 both look slightly under exposed and have a fairly shallow DOF.
When you post, try to include the shooting details (aperture, focal length, shutter speed and ISO) or make sure the EXIF information is included in the uploaded image. This helps people to comment.

You're doing great for the first time, but now try to find some more interesting subjects for your next posting.

Welcome to POTN. This is a great place to learn and get some pointers. I don't care for the first picture at all because I don't know what it is. I like the compositions of the 2nd and 3rd. If you're going to do product type shots you may want to get a tripod to help out. You're doing good.

Thanks for your comments guys. Okay I will tell you a little more about these pics.

The first pic is actually a pic of my lamp shade on my desk, but here is the interesting part. I held a jewelers magnifying glass in front of my normal camera lens an order to get a more zoomed in shot. Yeah, so is that pretty ghetto macro photography or what? The colors were later adjusted in photoshop and the original lamp shade color was yellow. This one was taken with an Olympus SZ-12 point and shoot.

For the second one I had a very bright light with a light diffuser on the small skateboard model (fingerboard), this was taken with the Canon T2i with 18-55mm lens.

The third one.... oh gosh. I had an old FD 50mm Pentax lens from my mothers old photography stuff and since I didn't have an adapter yet (just ordered one) I just hand held the lens to the T2i as if it were attached to the camera and took this picture!

I really need to learn these things called DOF and ISO and shutter speed and so on because I honestly don't know about them. I'm just starting to get into actual photography.

Thanks!

Thanks for sharing your techniques. I think they're very innovative. I had no idea the skateboard wasn't full size.
