Hi all, my name is Scott and I just recently bought a Canon S2. Its the first camera I have ever owned that isnt a simple point and shoot. Iv had the camera for about a year now and taken just simple snapshots of the family, kids, etc. But about 100% of my pictures were taken in "AUTO" mode. Iv recently been more interested in taking better pictures, so I picked up a book at the local bookstore yesterday called "Understanding Exposure". Iv learned a little already about aperture, ISO, shutterspeed, etc. In fact I took a couple pictures in MANUAL mode that I attached. I dont really think any of them are "good pictures" because I dont get that eww ahh feeling when I look at them, but cool to me just because they werent in AUTO mode. Which leads me to my next question. I know this is more of a personal preference / creativity thing. But my biggest problem is I dont know what to take pictures of. Or if I see something I think is cool, I dont know how to take a picture of it. What I mean is, Im learning on the technical part (iso, aperture, etc) but I dont really know what angle or where to stand, what part of the item to shoot, etc... I feel like I have no creativity or something... But not just the angle, but what to shoot. I look around and all I see are houses and telephone polls around me... lol I guess I just want some tips/suggestions if anyone has any. They would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks a ton... btw, here are my first ever non-AUTO pictures. Nothing fancy, just some things I saw on way to wife's family's house over the weekend opps, couldnt figure out how to attach, anyone know how to attach files?
