Any other amateur photographers here?

I did a little photo shoot today with my Cleo. She is almost 7. This is my favorite photo out of the bunch. I was trying to get the bokah (background blur). With such a great model, how could I not.

Cleo is adorable :purple_heart: also the background blur looks great

I like making picture but not really good at it, used to have a very old camera but using phone now (better quality) or Polaroid pictures when I see something very pretty :grin:

So funny, I am actually in a photography class right now!





Here a few of my recent photos! I’m hoping I can use my new skills and photograph my crochet work better!

Nice. I never took any classes. But I love the internet. :wink: My brain doesn’t remember things well any more so I have to look things up almost every time. I just use the simple buttons, not specialized settings. But I am starting to remember this Aperture / bokah setting. Next up, my daughter wants school pictures taken of her littles. Excited.

So I don’t consider myself an amateur photographer, because I don’t try to learn any of the terminology or the “how to do this well”… But that’s probably because my hubby is a photographer, so I just ask him… (Although so far I’ve always taken my own pictures of my stuff, I just don’t bother him with it)

Beautiful!

I used to, but haven’t picked up my camera since I came to the US.

By now my laptop is way too ancient to handle my RAW files and I don’t think any program would still run with that old laptop :joy:

One of these days I’ll get going again.

I still sell the occasional postcard on Zazzle and Greetingcard universe, but haven’t uploaded anything in forever.

Beautiful!
It’ll def help.

Though one thing I’ve always disliked were portraits and product shots.
(I love taking candids, just not staged portraits :joy:)

I used to know my camera blindly, nit any more.
And I tend to forget terminology as fast as I learn it. :see_no_evil:

Oh, school pics! How exiting! So awesome that she wants you to do them!

More so she wants them done, and the local photographer retired. Ha. I’ll get her hooked on me. :wink:

Amazing photos. Not sure I would call you an amateur though. Fun to look at your views.

My dad used to have a separate flash. He would flash it first to relax us then get the good shot. :camera_flash: I learned to take multiple portrait photos, mostly without them knowing I’m taking them. :smile:
