    Default Comments for Newbies

    Hi I am new here. Also quite new to Canon 300D (although not so new to Canon camera). Tried hard to get my pictures posted here. The initial couple of time fail as the images that I uploaded seems too large.

    I took the following pictures of children on various events and appreciate if someone can enlighten and guide me to take better pictures.

    Nice subjects, quite cute!

    Maybe you could try using the rule of thirds more to allow for more interesting composition instead of always keeping the subjects dead center

    Thanks nickmak & Gymrat76 for the comments and compliments.
    But do you both think that the pictures taken is a little blur? Or it is fine?

    hi lifejourney,

    i like your pics of the indian boy amidst the water spray best as they have captured the boy's emotion very well.
    pic number 4 is particularly good in terms of sharpness, exposure and effective uncluttered composition.

    pic number 1 has an interesting central subject, but the pic looks overexposed, therefore the colours are flat. the background is also cluttered and distracting. perhaps you may try spot metering off the girl's face, as well as a tighter composition. e.g.



    cheers and keep shooting!

    you can buy better gear but you can't buy a better eye

    okie dokie... thanks so much for the words of advices.. shall work harder for better pictures, esp the part of "centralise subject".
    And till then, more advises and help will be required. Still exploring the unexpose issues on the Canon 300D
