    hello, all! ive been taking pictures for about 4 or 5 months now on an old used canon eos a2 i bought dirt cheap off of my friend. i mainly use my 50mm 1.8 which i love dearly. also, my grandfather lets me borrow his sigma 70-200 which can be pretty fun too. when im lazy, a friend lets me use his polaroid camera as long as i make sure to give him back his camera with a new pack of film. i havent taken any photo classes yet as i spent all my money for school this semester on a trip to europe this summer (totally worth it) so im all self-taught which is probably visible in my photos. hah. anyways, heres some of my pictures, let me know what you think.

    I really enjoyed these. They're good clean images with intriguing compositions.

    Heya calculatinginfinity and welcome to ThePhotoForum! :D
    (We must think of a shorter name for you! Who can type out all that without a typo??? ;) ;) ;))

    I'm with our switch-fix (erm: Sw1tchFX) here. Very enjoyable photos. No wonder you chose photography for your hobby. You have the eye and also quite a good amount of knowledge on how to use a camera and how to compose a photo. You have so far taught yourself well! :thumbup:

    You are a natural! I like #1 and #7. Careful with #1's white shirt and lighting combo, his right shoulder is overexposed. But, still, I really like #1.

    some of the best artists the world has seen were self taught, you have a good natural eye. Your pics remind me of shots from the 50's and 60's, natural everyday subjects shot with an arty perspective. You seem to have the knack of catching the naturalness of the people you shoot, look forward to more.
