My mom got out her guitar a couple days ago and I tried to take some pictures, but I didn't really get any I liked. This is my best. Any ideas to make it better? (Besides shooting during the day, which gives me a little more light to work with. ;))

Overall not bad, although I think it'd look better if you didn't crut off the head stock.

I like it as-is. Don't be too hard on yourself. :thumbup:

Maybe experiment with sepia or B&W.

Try different crops, as adversus suggested.

I'll have to shoot again to get any more in. ;) The color seems slightly off to me, but I'm not sure.

Believe it or not, I like the strap. It gives your mom's guitar character. The way you shot it here the strap doesn't help the composition though. If you are trying to capture some of your mom in the shot....the strap is her. =)
Keep shooting.

It's not that bad but, should've included the guitar edge as well. Feels incomplete to me.
