I am interested to know how you think about your own photo? :think:
What do you mean? Actually it's 1 of my first few shots with my 450D so im not too sure whether it's good

Which means... GO shoot until you find something good.

This is the cruel way of putting it across but you need to get it to stand out. Do you think the picture stands out? Does it garner interest? Does it make ppl go wow?

If not, then simply try again. Be a critic of your own works. Make sure you can convince yourself first before you can convince others.

Here's a shot of a lens I took when I was just starting out.



Wasn't fantastic now that I look back at it, but once you can feel that way, you can improve better and get better shots from there...

Work on it.

cheers,

haha, i know what you mean :)

Nevertheless, go on! Try and critque it yourself, then tell us what you think. Can it be better? How can it be more asthetically pleasing?

I'll give you my comments after you scrutinize your own work first ;)

Base on your photo, it was shot using an "auto-exposure" mode with a direct flash, which is a ":nono::nono:" in my opinion. U can just get a "point & shoot" camera and it works even better, some even have face detection and smart exposure which work "smarter" than dslr.
1st, get to know your camera. Then learn to understand things like aperture, shutter speed, iso, etc. Then, drop by library and read some guide book. Another way is search for tutorial, google it, or in youtube (now u can even subscribe for tutorial episode) Of cause, please do it after your exam. Good Luck!:thumbsup:

It's not leh. I used Manual to shoot this photo. Which means it's not auto exposure right? Or are we talking about different things?
