    Any comments would be helpful. I am new to the world of digital photography and have never used a camera before.

    Shame, I was looking for a pat on the back for my efforts with a DSLR.

    I'm trying to figure out what does post count have to do with the ability to make a quality image. I hope your not insinuating that the more posts you have, the better photographer you are.:scratch:



    Oh Tyler......try again. That one's a "no go".:thumbdown:

    Image looks to be a little out of focus, as well as kind of blah.
    To be honest it does nothing for me and I don't see you getting a golden ticket to hollyweird.


    Im sure this was a joke post so this was my added joke...

    I guess I am not familiar with that thread...?

    But anyways, I see that my first photo is not being well received. :-(

    Here is the second shutter actuation from my attempt at self portraits. Any better?

    Nope.

    You cut off the top of your head which makes those black balls on your lip stand out too much. Also the out of focus nose bothers me.

    It has to do that he is not new to the forum, and has used a camera before.

    ANYWAY. Can someone find me anywhere that it's documented in the sacred tomes of photography that it's unacceptable to not have the entire head of a subject in frame? It seems like time and time again, this gets brought up, and I fail to see why this is a requirement for a captivating portrait.

    Not getting defensive, simply just sayin'.
