here are some photo's I've taken recently I've been out practising a lot over xmas as I've had loads of time off
any tips for how to get my photo's better are greatly appreciated
colours are a bit wishy washy, wider appature and longer exposure time needed. great effort though. what camera do you have?
your a bit stuck with compacts, slr is most definately the way forward. argos have slr nikons half price at the moment.
I agree with what's been said already and would like to add a little bit. Spend some time on composition,maybe line things up, or centre them maybe.
So good visions though, keep at it bud
Very nice Fran
Look out for nikons second hand, always see them on gumtree. Then you can mess about alot more with the settings and filters. Pictures look good though, get adobe lightroom and have a play with them

Good stuff Fran, when you get a Dslr or Slr you'll be so happy, when i got my dslr i moved onto another level straight away, even with my point and shoot skills!

stupid auto correct.
Get yourself a good second had CANON!! 400D, 350D, etc pick them up for round 200-300 with lens. next you need a tripod, I actually bought a manfrotto today from Argos for 50quid and i also got a wireless trigger thingy for it so i can do long exposures. after you got that what you have to do it get up before the sun rises, head to a nice spot (beach, landmark etc) and wait for that moment to capture. again this works with sunsets too. its ALL in the lighting. try to keep your iso to a low number like 100 or 200. for landscapes you want to have a wide aperture so set it to F.8 or higher then the shutter speed comes next. using the tripod will allow you to open the shutter for a lot longer than hand held which in return allows you to catch that silky effect when shooting beach shots or waterscapes. for action shots the slow shutter can also work as you can use it for panning when shooting drift cars etc

Ive got the 50D and the 550D (for video use) both are great. Ive been doing photography for maybe 3-4 years now and I've learned a lot in that time but still a lot more to learn.
heres one of my recent slow shutter speed beach shots.
Awesome photos bro I like it

Fran - cmong along nice there - someone already mentioned it but you need a tripod - i picked one up from amazon with a hook attatched for a silly price. Also for good pics you need:-
Dont be afraid to try random things but if your camera wont automatically adjust the shutter speed when you alter the aperture, then your going to have some fun lol!
Yeah i got my nikon d3100 off ebay - it was only a couple of months old and had a telephoto lens with it. I saved about 150 bucks just because it was second hand.
If you have a budget, email me and i will have a snoop for you?
Also if you require lightroom and cs5 ( photoshop ) i can post em to your door!
nice pics fran, i had a new camera for crimbo to, it is a fujifilm finepix s3280 bridge camera. had a play about when i was on holidays with it and found myself taking pics of loads of flowers, lol
