    New at Photography

    Hi, I am relatively new at photography but am enjoying this new experience. I bought a 9 mega-pixel Fuji Finepix and started goin to town.

    Here are a few examples of some early work.

    the best investment you can do early on in photography is get a quality tripod.

    in addition to the obvious stability of the shots, it'll slow you down, which is a good thing. take more time to analyze formal relations of shapes and how it creates a composition, rather than just seeing the objects as objects.

    i feel the exposures need work. remember to expose for the shadows and print for the highlights. take meter readings off the darkest tonalities of the image to ensure that details are picked up in the dark values.

    i wouldn't use any automatic functions at all. automatic, ISO, aperature (f. stop), and focus, and exposure may be handy, but it will do little to help you understand the technical aspects of how to craft an image properly.

    experiment with the technical functions and make an attempt to fully understand them, and how to utilize the options available to you. your work will make leaps and bounds in improvement just by unterstanding the tools (which is true for any medium)

    looking forward to more

    1 & 3 have nice compositions.

    #2 is overexposed in the highlights, so it'll probably benefit from a reshoot. Try to go out at a time when the sun isn't beaming down and I think you may get some good details in the overexposed parts.

    #4 has some good textures, but it would probably fare better with a diffrent composition. Get creative!

    Lookin' good, keep 'em coming!
