    Took some pictures of my son this weekend as I wanted a fun subject to shoot while trying my hand at full manual. I figured if I screwed them up, I'd still have fun shooting.

    I'm happy with the results in terms of exposure and subject, but I think I've found some limitations of my onboard flash. I I personally think the lighting is "okay" from my perspective, that's fine because I really haven't do any work or research on proper lighting techniques. That is my next "to-do"

    Critiques are welcome.

    Cute moments. But it looks like you need to watch your focus and/or your shutter speeds. Quite a few mis-focused or blurry shots in there.

    I guess I posted too many pictures for critique, or they are just that bad :(, I edited down to 4.

    If any one is interested in critiquing, I'd appreciate it.

    I'd love to learn lighting... but I don't have any to work with. All I have is an onboard flash. I plan on moving into an SB-600 here shortly, but all I've got, is all I've got for now.

    As a hobbiest amature, I have no plans on moving towards anything past the SB-600 for lighting, at least not in the short term.

    As an honest question, is it not worth my time to post pictures for critique if I don't have the equipment?

    "A Rodeo" is a cliche for "jumping into something wild in which the outcome is very much unknown"... Like riding a bull. It looks like a good idea at the time, but you have no idea if you are going to come out with a smile on your face or a broken nose.

    I'll think my titles through better next time.
