    I left the School of Visual Arts a year or so ago, but i love looking at my friend's work. I want to know how to get these kinds of quality photos from a digital camera.
    I've done it with film, but i don't have a method to my madness, it just happens. I'm wondering if it can be recreated through my digital camera.

    I'm working with a Nikon D40.

    The second and third images are just shot with flash (either the pop-up flash or an external hot shoe Speedlite).

    The first image looks like a film image that's been scanned. I think you could dupicate this look with a digital camera and Photoshop.

    I really don't see anything that special about these images.

    open the pop-up flash, point, press the little button, camera goes click. That how you do the 2nd and 3rd. 1st you can edit colors in PS

    not sure why the username would make you think it was a joke...

    am I wrong in thinking they sucked?? they just look like crappy P&S images.. the first one is "ok" but the other 2 i would never want to try to reproduce, let alone ask someone to help me reproduce...

    because of that, I figured it must have been a joke.. why have there been so many trolls lately... I've never seen so many on a forum before.. but it seems like at least twice a week there is a troll post

    sorry to offend.. if your serious.. they gave you the advice on how to do it up top.. my advice is, don't try to make your photos look like those, because they aren't very good at all, and you can get much nicer photos with your D40 and a little know how..

    well, i guess we all have our tastes.. some better than others.. #2 and #3 were likely shot in Auto, and used the pop up flash... #1 has some sort of haze filter added to it..

    Along with other on this... point and click - they are just snapshots, nothing special.
