I've had a camera for a long time (Fujifilm FinePix S9100; that sort of hybrid DSLR/P&S thing), but hadn't used it much until recently. I took a photography class last year, but it covered lots of other things as well (like various computer elements, video, 3D, etc), so I hadn't done much photography, though I do understand the concepts. I'm currently on vacation in Japan and have been taking loads of pictures, and am quickly regretting that I hadn't started sooner. Regardless, I'm looking for some critique and general tips. I'll put up a few photos that I personally like, and at the bottom I'll link the whole lot of pictures from this trip. A few in the set aren't serious pictures, and instead are just "tourist shots" of things that I laughed at when I saw them. Silly Japan. I was messing with various styles, so hopefully that shows. Some of them are close up DoF shots because I'm a sucker for those, some of them are "the big picture" shots that don't have one specific subject, and at least one is very shopped and stylized. No portraits though, because I hate people in general. Some rust and some pipes. Banzai! A very pink flower. Tons of signs and wires. A pretty bleak subway. Some carp. And here's the whole set, stupid tourist pics included: The whole lot. Any feedback is welcome, including "OH GOD U SUX" because then at least I'd know.
