    People shots, and request for needed suggestions

    TPSS, careful with that term we could have another over diagnosed syndrome on our hands. Right so I did try full manual a bit, but only got a few decent shots that way (practice makes perfect). Most I took were on AV, all and all though my family pictures turned out better then normal just by...

    I am still here... Christmas just kind of snuck up on me and slapped me in the back of my head. I have been reading up a bit on aperture and shutter priority modes, I haven't really had a chance to apply it like I want to yet. I will be back - If this blasted holiday doesn't do me in first.

    Snowy night

    Your pictures I have seen that you take of Snowy so far appear to really show off how majestic of a bird Snowy is. Makes me want an owl, but I believe it would scare the hell out of my cats.

    Do not swear by the moon, for she changes constantly. (Moon Pictures)

    I am looking up the rules you mention here, and I am going to put these suggestions to use this weekend, at least on shots of the moon (weather allowing). If the sky is fairly clear enough the moon should be around half full waxing. Thanks so much for the suggestions and input.

    Thank you for the homework, I can do that... Will have to be over the weekend. No worries about the criticism. I live in the home of a Marine and a Navy man. Besides my mother is so mean she could likely chew up a piece of led and spit out bullets. Makes for some pretty thick skin-

    Yes there was dust bunnies... More like sand bunnies. I wound up having to take it and get it cleaned. Which was free but I was cameraless for about three weeks. First, thank you so much for your input. Having the subject centered, aside from portraits isn't a good idea... This I am...

    Hee, yes I guess faces would be important! I am going to have to read up on aperture not real clear how to use it effectively. Course that is true with most of my knowledge in regards to photography. I am attempting to change that. I like how you approach this in simple steps for it does...

    Do not swear by the moon, for she changes constantly. (Moon Pictures)

    Thanks, I wasn't certain. I asked my husband (who bought the camera with me) and he thought the second lens just went up to 200. I know, I know... I must sound like a ditz and with cameras I pretty much am. I like taking pictures but never really took the time to learn how to actually take a...

    Do not swear by the moon, for she changes constantly. (Moon Pictures)

    Wow nice photo... Thanks so much for your input. I have the tripod and the shutter remote but I don't understand mirror up? Also not familiar with teleconverter. lol lastly I do not currently have a lens that goes over 200 (I think) I believe my second lens goes from 55-200. However I have...

    Do not swear by the moon, for she changes constantly. (Moon Pictures)

    Excellent thanks for the tips. Just explaining why certain settings works the way they do helps. For example some told me to shoot the moon at a lower shutter speed because it is dark outside. However having the subject so bright it makes sense to fore go that suggestion. I evidently need to...

    I am not terribly confident when it comes to taking pictures of people. With the holidays coming up I would really like to get some decent shots of family. The ones I got below are probably the bests ones I have gotten over a ten year time span, and that is after taking a thousand or more...

    Do not swear by the moon, for she changes constantly. (Moon Pictures)

    I still don't really know how to set my camera to shoot these kind of shots. Mostly it has been guess work. Anyone who wants to offer some suggestion in regard to ISO, fstop and shutter speed for a rebel t3 when shooting the moon or even the stars. I can't get a good star shot to save my...

    1 photo for critique

    I like it, I like the whole picture and the light and fade to deep blue but then I am not one to critique... I just don't feel confident enough. I really do like the whole shot though.

    Sunsets

    Very good advice, thank you... Funny that is why I kind of like #1 but I like the shag of the hickory tree. I can't argue much with the last one though. The subject sunset/sailboat seems to be pretty popular.
