Hello all, Im a noob to the forum and a super noob to photography. Im still trying to figure things out, but having difficulty with the technical aspects of the camera, photoshop, and what they can do. I realized that I should only be shooting in RAW format to get a better post-process picture; does anyone else believe this? I was hoping to get some critical and detailed feedback on my posted photos so I know if Im in the right direction. I took these pics in some woods where I live because I dont want to drive as far as I did the weekend before and all my pics turned out like crap. I figure I better get things correct in my backyard before I venture out. Does it look like Im on the right track with the required rules of photography? Please, provide as much detailed feedback as you can and dont worry about hurting my feelings. I welcome all feedback and I appreciate veteran and pro opinions since I don't have anyone with the knowledge and skills to turn to (my better half tells me all my pics are good. You know how that goes :er: ). Thanks a bunch! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.
