    Hey guys,

    These are the first digital shots from my new D70s. I have been a black & white photographer for 3 years and using this camera has been amazing BUT confusing! This is also one of very few attempts at close up shots using depth of field to my advantage. I find it as enjoyable as landscape (my strength) so i would love to get advice on things like composition etc.

    I am up for every single bit of critisicsm you can give me, and any good points too!

    Thanks and enjoy (hopefully!)

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    I agree with you on 6-8 but the others are good.

    Thanks mate! I have a lot to learn about digital because it seems to be much more complex than vintage (i call it that too, sounds better ;)) although there are many similarities.

    Cheers

    Thanks nitefly. There's nothing better than using the dog for experimenting with DOF because its a moving object which you can order around to wherever is needed. Although my dog is as dis-obedient (someone correct my on that spelling) as possible!

    I really want to get a bigger lense now, does anyone know the best place, or website in the UK to hire lenses?

    hey thanks, i think 6, 7, 8 are kind of there.....but i have problems with composition, and i haven't focused on the daffodils well either! tbh my garden isn't the most attractive of backgrounds so it leaves me to use things like flowers in the foreground.


    Thanks again

    I like that one too, however it seems that the only daffodil in focus is at the back and hidden by other daffodils.. Excellent idea though :)

    Maybe we are both strange.. :lol:
