Photography thread...

Post by Kumarnishith » Wed Feb 12, 2014 6:59 pm

I finally got my first DSLR camera! A modest Canon 1100D along with a 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens plus a 55-250mm f/4-5.6 & a 50mm f/1.8 lens which I added later on.. Here are few of my first pictures which I have taken in last week..I am learning something new every single day...Photography blogs & Flickr being my biggest savior...I am not going to bother you guys by posting each & every pic I take but maybe posting once in a while to check if I am going in the right direction..We already have a wildlife photography thread going strong..I request you all to feel free to add your favorite shots in this thread.. :D

Beautiful.
Lucknow has a special place in my heart. That's where I was born and spent my first few years.

Kumarnishith

Love the last two pics.

Even if you would have used Canon's top end EOS1D, the pics you took would have looked as fabulous. In any case you have a good DSLR kit whose dynamic range and low light/high speed performance will put all the point and shoots to shame.

You have good low light stuff going here. Save and invest in a better tripod and take care of getting horizontal lines parallel to the frame in future.

As an example of overcoming adversity, Karoly Takacs has few peers. He was part of Hungary’s world champion pistol-shooting team in 1938, when an army grenade exploded, crippling his right hand. Ten years later, having taught himself to shoot with his left, he won two gold medals in the rapid-fire class.

Thanks Briha jee, Fantumfan & Deep for your encouraging words :D Someone once said “You don't take a photograph, you make it.” :D I am not even an amateur...am learning something new every single day :D

And here are the pics of my two lovely dogs which Vikram had requested earlier..will try to add recent pics in couple of days :)


Image

Sheru & Candy at one and half month..





Image

Don't go by his innocent looks :mrgreen: He is the most mischievous dog I ever had... :lol:






Image

Though they are inseperable....they fight for attention like born enemies when I am around..




Image

Sheru is my 4th German Shepherd & I must admit I have a soft corner for this breed..






Image

It's interesting to note that though both the dogs have been reared & trained together yet their nature are league apart from each other...Breed instinct..?? :)

Enjoy..

Absolutely sweet looking fellows,Nishith. Thank you for sharing the photos. I love German Shepherds and I do put them on the top as a breed.

Gear used is a modest battered Nikon D90 with a 50mm 1.8 and an occasionally used Tamron 17-50 f2.8 lense....
