I've been around for a few weeks, so I thought I'd share some things. The first assignment of my photography class was to familiarize ourselves with the manual use of our cameras. I had just gotten my first DSLR, so I happy to do so. The following are what I think are the best shots (no post-processing aside from a resize). One. This is our dog, Annie I missed the focus on this one. It's on her toes/nose and not her eyes. Two. This is Nut Meg. This one was a little noisy at the actual size (ISO:1600). Other than that, I think it's pretty good. Three. Felix. Four. At the local chess club. I think this one could use a minor crop on the left, and I forgot to change the ISO, so it's still at 1600 here. Five. Some Precious Moments Angels. I don't know if the lighting's too great, but it's what I had. So, that's about all. Please C&C. When the prof did so in front of the class, he just praised them (as he did with everyone's). I think he's afraid to hurt peoples' feelings. Thanks.
