    I have some pictures that were taken with my Nikon of my dog Rusty, that i'd like to share.
    They aren't that great, but as I said in my introduction I'm only 13 so think their good for my age?? *Sorry for some different werid sizes*

    I started photography when I was about your age so dont worry, these arent that bad! I like your composition on the turtle shot. Personally I am not a fan of flash. Can you turn the flash off on your camera? I do portraits in natural light and only use the flash for a fill flash if I am desperate for light. On #'s 4 and 5 I would take a different angle. Do you see how his head is slightly distored? You were a bit too close in my opinion. You have some good shots, keep snapping and posting!

    the most laid back dog I have ever seen. Nice job for any age.

    Yes I can turn my flash off, I usually keep in on or just do the auto flash if it needed. I see how his head kind of looks werid, really I don't have him turn his head that way or anything they were just shots when I was outside. I actually have a million with his head totally turned. But thanks for the advice, and compliments.

    He is actually not that laid back he can be really hyper, I have some ones of him playing with a soccer ball when he got crazy. But, there not that good to share since I was just trying sports mode when I took them.

    I'll be posting some flower pictures soon I have from when I used my Kodak if you want to check them out. :mrgreen:

    That turtle is a beauty! I like its photo, too.

    All in all I was thinking the same as LeeLee wrote down: the use of on-camera flash is something that should be reserved for situations where really and truly nothing else goes. Other than that it not only makes our pets' eyes shine in this funny manner (showing their tapetum on the back of their eyes), but also creates some very harsh shadows.

    And when your lens is set to "wide angle", you must not move up so close (even though you can), for that will distort your subjects. LeeLee has mentioned that fact, too!

    All in all you are doing great and you USE the camera, unlike my daughter who I so often INVITE to use a camera more and who doesn't...
