Lovely light and sharp photos, all of them.



Umm, first things first. Start with Aperture priority mode with autofocus on for now. Start making photographs with these settings and then eventually move to other settings. The problem with all manual stuff is that we get overwhelmed at times, unless we have a good control over the camera. And, do join us for a walk . It might help you and it'll be great fun!
Thanks HW! Please me inform about your next photo Walk & I Will definitely take part in it and get a chance to meet you Guys.

As far as I understand, Manual is the best if you are shooting in a studio set up with accurate control over your lighting and subject. Anything outdoors, unpredictable, varying light situations, unexpected opportunities: Go for Aperture or Shutter modes. Familiarizing with Manual mode takes time and experience.

You are ready to shoot in full Manual when you can understand the lighting and decide what ISO, Aperture, Shutter speed, Metering and Exposure required for a particular shot. Then we have Composition and DOF to master. I am a learner like you, I hope and wish I can master just the basics in 1 year.

End of the day, its the quality of picture that matters, none cares if you shot in Manual, Aperture or Shutter mode ! Gurus, please correct me if I am giving wrong ideas.
Thanks Shaju & pramod,
I will surely consider your suggestions & adopt it.
This thread is helping a lot to improve my skills.
My sincere request to photo gurus, please please comment on our (learners) uploaded photos. Your Appreciation & advices will help us to improve our skills.
regards

Shajufx, i was on spot metering. The Heron was constantly on move. Was targeting the eyes only, couldn't get it.
Reg the photograph, did you mean like this ?

@v&v
You overexposed the whites on the crane. Shutter speed can be increased here to reduce the over exposure, while maintaining the aperture.

A very regular image. Look for contrast in subject and background. Look for interesting light that you can play with, like some rim light, or back light or spotlight through shadows etc. The whole idea should be, how can you make your image different and not just another run of the mill shot. The mood must reflect in the light, composition and frame.

And "Unofficial Bachelor" TG? Well, lets make that as Official Bachelor TG :P

Testing the Nikkor 70-300 VR.

How does one make shots like this interesting? Flat blue skies and no objects to pay with.

A few recent clicks. Desaturated the images since the skies weren't dramatic as such.
