I'm still learning how to use it, and I know its capable of amazing things, so can anyone here help me with some pointers on settings, techniques etc in taking great shots? So far I've only managed to pull off these:
Some of you guys take some amazing shots, any advice would be appreciated.
My word isn't worth much, considering I've never taken a photography class in my life, but shot construction is an important note to make with all things art related. There's a lot of things that fall into that category, but perhaps the most basic is the "Rule of thirds." If you google it I'm sure you can get a better description that I could ever give. It's like Jedi mind magic. Lol. The human mind tends to immediately recognize the Rule of Thirds, even if you don't realize it.
I need to get myself a place to hang a backdrop. Lol. All I have is the top of my dresser, and I don't much care to put tape on the antique mirror hanging above it, especially since it once belonged to my great-grandfather <.<
