Learn how to light, it'll be the best thing you've ever done for your photography.

It also helps to be ready and willing to take advantage of opportunities as they arise. One of my favorite pictures I took was a matter of happenstance.



As I walked by the entrance of this particular exhibit, this little girl turned around and struck a pose.

Always have a camera handy even if its just your phone, and don't be afraid to stick you head in unusual places you may not know what may stare back at you

Read a book or take an intro course at a community college for the basics. Then look at lots of pictures and see if you can tell how they were taken AND why you liked them. Try to copy them. It's a great way to accelerate the learning curve. A lot of people post their exif data for a photograph on Flickr.

there is little replacement for time behind the lens. I am by no means a great photographer but can constantly take good photos when ever I pick up the camera.

Shooting with a
Canon 5D MK1
Canon 17-40 L4
Canon 28-105 L4
Tamron 70-200 2.8

Understanding Exposure gets a ton of reveiws. Light, Science and Magic is a great book for teaching lighting theory. It gives you more of "this is why light works" rather than, "here's a lighting setup to copy and use."

Strobist is a great site to learn lighting off of and there's regional Strobist groups throughout the world. There was a pretty good one for the DC/Baltimore/NoVa region which also included events in Philly, WV, and MD. We even had people from NY drive down to participate but it's mostly dormant right now.

Workshops are a great place to learn as well. Even paid workshops depending on who the instructor is, what they're teaching, and what you want to learn. Don Giannatti of Lighting Essentials does a pretty amazing workshop and provides models and shooting locations.

I am a complete hobbyist, doing lots of kids sports photos and custom prints (love Photoshop!!) and trying to expand beyond that. Shooting with my Nikon and having lots of fun experimenting!











I like to try to look at things from different angles...and just have fun with it! www.kcsactionphotos.com

I have a new subject!
I am very much a beginner.
All shots were taken with a canon t3 and 50mm 1.8 with no real photo editing. ( I don't have any program besides windows)
I have tons more of the dog lol. But much more to come of the little one. Any and all criticism is more than welcome!

Here is a concrete question:

How do I get my photographs of a Jeep + rocks + dirt + close trees to get the same feel as the space did when I was in it?

I'm thinking I need to move toward telephoto end of things, because wide angles that make it practical to get more of the field of view into the frame cause enough distortion that the "road/trail" doesn't look at all like it felt either driving or walking through.
