Picture taken with nikon d3200 . Im a newbie at this btw.
Doubt you want to ask me what camera was used.
It wasn't taken with a camera sadly. I only have a camera phone myself, Sharp SH-10C.
quality looks nice .. dam wasted my money on a dslr lol bahahaha
Nah, with a DLR you can get different lenses for effect or for the long ranged shots. With this, you can't really use a tripod, you have to adjust the lack of zoom by using your feet and have a steady hand to grip someone not meant to be held that way.
One thing I know, I won't be taking any photos at jets in action at the upcoming airshow due to lack of zoom.
i only have a 55mm lens.. saving up for a 100+ mm lens
Nice shots. Must be the photographer and not the camera.
You don't need much after the stock 18-55mm lens. Just learn how to take better picture
What he means to say is: use the shit out of your kit lens and find it's limitations. That coupled with manual mode and you're bound to take amazing pictures.
Only when you know the limitations of your current lens collection you are allowed to get more. By limitation it doesn't include "I want to take a picture of the aeroplane landing one day, therefore I will buy a 600mm" kind of limitation, it means "right, I prefer to take wide angle photographs but 18mm is not good enough, time to get 12-24mm".
Manual mode is very good if you want to stretch your creativity to the max, but useless for "stock usage", like taking picture of yourself in the bathroom
Well im not sure how to.. I mean if you can help me out id love it because im new to photography previously i didnt even take any pics lol i bought this dslr for weddings and web design . Also at times i need to take photos from far.. like u know 3 stories high or so to be able to see peoples number plates lol. not stalking just ..... hmm im not able to see their number plates clearly.. if i were to zoom to the max at 55 and even if i use ps its still distorted. Anyway would love help of anyone im using a nikon d3200 its fairly new im a newbie people said its a good cam but after buying it people are saying the opposite so i dont know if i made a good investment or not i payed about 900 usd including a tripod a good one from sony.
Weddings is a big jump if you've never taken pictures before.
The best zoom is your feet, remember to fill your frame, if something doesn't add to the picture it shouldn't be there.
Never blame your tools, the D3200 is a good camera, the important thing is to learn Manual mode because if you can't get the picture right in A or S modes then you need something to follow up on. Also, take your camera everywhere, you'd much rather have a camera and not need it than to need a camera and not have it. Start looking at pictures and finding ones you like and try to mimic they style of them or copy them.
yep weddings are a big jump but i mean as in family related i still got a year to train. I dont get what you mean by the best zoom is your feet"// Can you further define? I dont blame my tools but people have been making negative comments on the camera model i bought :c Its like.. i bought an over priced amd fx8150 when i could have gotten a better deal with the i5 2500k . Just an example no mad no hate.
Walk up to your subject to get the picture instead of relying on a zoom lens... best zoom is your feet
ah i see.. okay second issue the reason i zoom is because those people are bad :s and they are likely to beat me up .
the police are not much help because they close 1 eye or both eyes .
// On a different thought where do u get those insects ?
