Hey guys, I'm very new to photography and purchased a DSLR for myself last month for my 23rd Birthday(Dec)/Christmas. I'm learning more every time I go out and play with my camera and starting to understand the relationship between iso, shutter speed and aperture better as I go along. So my photography + post production skills are very limited, but feel free to c&c. Hope to learn a lot more from this forum and out in the field by myself.
Here's a couple candid photos from the 'no pants' event Toronto had today (350+ pant-less subway riders). I chose to play around with selective color today. These are my favorites for unspecified reasons....

Took a few shots at this event today. I was mainly shooting from the hip rather than looking through the viewfinder so that was a little hard for me to get used to. Especially trying to get it the shots framed properly.
At the beginning I was only shooting single frame mode when an older gentleman (told me he was from the Toronto Star newspaper), suggested using continuous release mode like he was to have a better chance of getting a few sharp images out of the bunch. He had a Nikon D3 with a huge lens and held down his shutter button...click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click...dozens of times in a few seconds. I changed my settings and we both laughed as my camera obviously was no where near his speed. I thanked him and we went separate ways throughout the train.
I had it set to Aperture-priority mode today and many of my shots turned out blurry as the shutter speed the camera chose was too slow for the dark subway environment and people were constantly moving.
Lesson learned. Use shutter-priority mode or manual next time and set a faster shutter speed to stop motion, I was already shooting at 1600 ISO.
