Okay... So, like...

Okay... So, like, I'm new and all... Though really I've been lurking about for months on and off...

I recently in the last three months bought a 40D Canon... I love taking pictures of my friends' kids... and I love photojournalism...

Could I get a few tips and tricks thrown out my way? Anything would be helpful... I keep thinking that I am one of those horrible people that THINKS they are taking decent photos, but in all reality - my images are actually horrible, so any input would be fantastic. Of course my family, friends and boyfriend say my images are good - but they have to say that...

Re: Okay... So, like...

The best way to see if you are on the right track is to post some of your pictures and get feedback.

If you have been looking at the forums, you will know that any comments you get will not be disparaging or derogatory, and you will get suggestions on how to improve, or accolades if you get it right - you cannot loose!

Re: Okay... So, like...

Critique is usually the best way, and the critique on here is very good. It's constructive. I don't think I would have progressed as far with my photography if it hadn't been for my husband, who is great at critique, he will really go through my shots and tell me what he thinks without holding back, if he thinks they are bad, he'll say so. So if he thinks a shot is good, it generally is.
Also post on here, we have some great people who will give you a really balanced opionion of your shot and help with any part of it they think could be improved. Finally self critique, which is important.
No point in being sensitive to critique, it's really the best way to learn.

Re: Okay... So, like...

Probably most people are inwardly sensitive to critique but we also realise that it is best way to learn. Have a look at what others are posting and see how you think yours compare. Then if you want to post them in the sharing section. No one is going to rubbish what you post.

You have spent a lot of money on that camera (good choice by the way ) To get the best from it you should try to improve your photographs and here is a very good place to start
