Just got a new T2i! No previous extensive experience in photography but I'm studying my tail off. Can anyone critique these few? They are pretty basic....no "wow" scenes.

Hey there. How are you liking the T2i? Its a great camera. I just got my first DSLR a couple months ago(T1i) and I love it. As I am still a noob I am just going to comment on one of them. The last one is my favorite. I like the composition and the background. It would have been even better if it was in focus though. If there was some EXIF data attatched I could give you some advice. What were the settings for the last one?

the last photo.......iso: 3200, shutter speed:1/60 sec, aperture:1.8, focal length: 50mm

Perhaps I should have decreased the iso? or increased the shutter speed? My living room has the worst lighting in all of North America so it' really hard to shoot in there after daylight.

haha I know these are very beginner level photos.

the cheeze stick pic is nailed. Nice job there! The Trolley pic looks like the camera picked up on the building as it's primary focus. Gotta watch that YOU choose the focus point and take that responsibility away from the camera.

Main things are focus points and camera shake.

i would shoot aperture 2.2 or smaller to get more depth of field which will get more of the boot in focus.

If you decrease the ISO, you dcrease the shutter speed to get proper exposure at the same aperture. If you're shooting at 3200 f/1.8 and are still at 1/60 then you were at the extremes of both your body and lens. You can only do so much with limited light ;)

I have a t2i as well and am loving it! I like 1, 3 , and 4 but you have a little camera shake in 4. make sure it's sitting firmly against something. That or it was just a tad out of focus. I also might have changed the f down a few more notches to get all of the ear muffs in focus but still kept the tree blurry. keep up the great work.

while i'm certainly no expert, I think the best advice I would offer to anyone despite the camera he/she is using is be sure the picture conveys at least one main point. The viewer shouldn't really have to guess what it is, but let your use of light direct my eye to the subject... and then i can ponder its meaning.

eg: Picture 1 is soooo busy with information, and much of it similar contrast, so a clear story doesn't emerge for me.
Picture two, beautiful color! maybe a longer lens or shallower depth would have brought out single story. (eg: allow the bus to blur in panning motion, but make sure the gentleman in 2nd seat was tack sharp)
Pict 3: thats a scrumptous cheese stick you're tempting me with... fantastic shot (like poster above noted, maybe a little shallower depth would have enhanced, but its awesome)
Pic 4: the bokeh'd lights are brighter than the boots, so they drew my eye to them instead...so the pic has competing priorities.

Looks like you've got a great eye iamchanel! I'm looking forward to more of your posts!
