Hey guys - been lurking for a little while now, recently got my first ever camera (powershot SD1200) and have been voraciously reading everything I can find about photography. Although it fascinates me, I'm finding it really challenging! So, here I have my first few exposures (I know they're not all that good, but ANY tips/advice would be appreciated) and a few basic questions. What I struggle with primarily is developing an eye for composition, so to speak - I know it's silly to think that I can learn this over a forum, but any basic tips in that realm would also be great. Second on my list is that I'd like to be able to take some stunning landscape shots. I live in a mountainous area and the scenery is breathtaking. Every exposure I've taken looks flat, dull, lifeless and definitely does not provide the same sense of awe that I get when I look at other (good!) landscape photos. They have more colors, they're richer, and they look deep. Definitely could use some help in this area! 1. My first attempt at any sort of macro - one thing I know I screwed up is that I oversaturated it in photoshop. Something I'll avoid next time (I don't know how to go back and fix it, haha... also a PS newbie). 2. Took this one last night - I live in the mountains of South Korea, so there's some opportunity for some neat landscapes, caught this one as the sun went down. It's my favorite of the three, but I wish there were more colors, instead of just that intense orange. Any tips there, or is that a light thing? 3. Finally an attempt at night photography. Shot at about 11 PM during an overcast full moon. A little grainy, but I kind of like it - it almost doesn't look like a photo. Thanks for any help you can provide! Either with shot taking, artistry, technical stuff, or any PP work.
