    First Photoshoot

    This was my first photo shoot. The model was a friend of mine, and we just wanted to add some photos to our portfolios. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. #1 Sarah_03-04-2016_(75of540).jpg by Mike Rothschild, on Flickr #2 untitled_03-04-2016_(84of540).jpg by Mike Rothschild...

    I want to be over there

    C&C appreciated. Obviously, the telephone poles aren't the most attractive in this photo. Also, I really tried centering everything, but for some reason, the side railings don't look even. I see (now) that the left railing enters the frame a 'tad' higher than the right one, but I don't...

    Looking for my first tripod

    I'm new to photography, so I'm still discovering new styles of photography that pique my interest. I have a Canon Rebel T5, and my heaviest lens is the kit lens (total weight is about 22.38 oz. / 634g). So far, I don't do any portrait work (but I'd eventually like to try it), but I've found...

    Foot-tappin' music

    Just looking for a little C&C. I'm not interested in photoshopping anything, so I'm mostly looking for critique on my technique, or things that can be adjusted in Lightroom please. I was at a VERY dimly lit bar, and my so my ISO was high, and I threw up some luminosity to eliminate some...

    First time shooting a band, can I charge?

    Hey guys, I wouldn't call me an aspiring professional. Really, I'm a beginner, but I thought this might still be a good place to pose this question. I've never shot a band before, so these are my first photos doing that. Do I have any business asking the band if they'd be interested in...

    Who's the photographer?

    This might be a trivial question of semantics, but I was thinking about setting up a photo with myself as the subject. I know I could use a timer or a cable release, but I think I might have a friend help me out and take the photo. If I set the picture up, frame it the way I want, and adjust...

    B&W or Color?

    I really like the color version of this because of the street art, but for some reason (I can't put my finger on it) the B&W one has a certain charm. What do you think? Also, general C&C is welcome, as I'm new and only have a very little amount of photographic knowledge. Already, I can see I...

    My First Photo of a Stranger

    I just wanted to share my accomplishment. I'm new to photography, and this weekend I watched the documentary "Everybody Street." I got super inspired to go out and shoot people, so I went downtown and just walked around. I'm still trying to get comfortable with taking pictures of strangers...

    Austin Skyline

    Hey guys, this is the first time I'm posting a photo on the forum. You don't have to go too easy on me, because I'm willing to learn and practice. This is also the first time I ever went anywhere with the express purpose of taking photos, so that was a big step for me. 50mm f/1.8 lens #1...

    Not new to the site, but new to DSLR

    Hey all, I just bought my first DSLR two days ago. Its the Canon Rebel T5, and in addition to the kit lens, I grabbed a 50mm f/1.8 lens. Also purchased was LightRoom. I haven't had a chance to touch the 50mm lens yet, but I messed around for a couple of minutes on the kit lens. I popped off...
