Ha.

I am taking this one to heart.


Things are just a little too . . .'financially unstable' to take the plunge into the SLR pool.

Soon ...I hope, things will be better here.

Getting feedback on photos from others can help with confidence and knowledge. I agree, that learning from your bad photos ( or were you went wrong) can help you 10 fold in the end!

One day a week set the camera to monochrome and shoot everything in black and white.

One day a week put on the prime lens and leave all the other lenses at home.

Photography is hobbies of most of the people around the world. Lots of people like to take photos of baby, animals, nature and landscapes. However being successful photographer is not much easiest. It is very much essential to have the colourful and unique pictures. At the time of taking photographs of people makes sure your capturing the photos of people emotions and reactions. Always try to take the photos of real people.

That's a good idea with the prime lens, I'm going to try that this weekend.

Don't waste money on expensive camera gear. Practice until you can take amazing photos with any camera.

A painter is a painter because of his/her abilities no because of their brush/paint.
A photographer is no different.

Read and shoot A LOT! 
Leave the more expensive cameras and lenses to the PRO. What I mean is that I khave known people with over 10 000 $ in gear but when they shoot fror example landscapes, they shoot in P mode with the build in flash [email protected]$#@$%#%@$#    A HUUUUGE waste of money!

The 3 components for me are:

-shoot in MANUAL MODE, you control the camera, not vice versa
-know the basic rules of COMPOSITION
-learn how to read the light

I have tried to expose my thoughts  here

Some essential tips for the beginners :-

1.Understand aperture The most fundamental element any photographer should understand is aperture. The wider the aperture opening, the more light can pass through.
2.Avoid using aperture to compensate for poor lighting.
3. Don't confine it to skies
4. Look for lenses where the zoom control doesn't change the filter orientation
5 .Don't forget about white balance
6. Don't forget about white balance

Hope these tips provide you ease while working with DSLR.

There will be circumstances when the camera's AE programming will do a reasonable job, so manual control is not needed at all times.

Aperture is just one of 4 factors in determining exposure, and just one of 3 factors in determining depth of field.  I fail to see how that makes aperture "the most fundamental element".

Why should aperture not accommodate lighting?

Don't confine what to skies???

When shooting RAW (not JPG), white balance can be taken care of in post processing.

I think that practice makes perfect, but don't let a lack of perfection deter you from improving your craft.

I have a Canon 5D Mark 111, been taking pictures for about one year. So, I still have a lot to learn.

I recently bought a new lens, Canon prime 85mm F1.2 to take pictures of our new grandchild. When I try to focus on more than

one subject, like 3 people. I can't get everyone in focus. Can anyone help me with this issue? Regards, Bryan
