    Hey, I just started doing some photos, after buying myself a nifty Nikon D80... And I thought that GBAtemp could use of a Photography Topic... So there it is!

    So I will start with my 3 first "good" photo that I did.

    Well all those photos are taken like... from 15 min from my house, the school in the last photo is like face to face with my house, when I look out the window I see it.

    Thanks for the comments [​IMG]

    Oh and people who do some photography, don't be shy to add your photos too [​IMG]

    Yay! I've been looking for a reason to go out and take random photos! I have some at home that I might post. I have a Canon 400D (Rebel XTi). Jealous of your D80! I was looking at that one, too, but this one I got for a nice deal in Hong Kong.

    Yeah well it's still a nice camera [​IMG]
    But wear warm clothes... it's freaking cold, my hands were like... half frozen when I got home after doing the photos, and I had some gloves on. Ah it's fun to live in Canada haha. Can't wait for spring, I will be able to make some photo even at night and not be half dead because of the cold weather.

    Cold is right! It was -36C with the wind chill a few days ago! It has since warmed up a bit... but still! I think we're averaging around -20C recently.

    EDIT: Ooo, 400 get.

    Haha, here are some quick photos I grabbed from home. It's hard browsing through thumbnails using a remote desktop... so I'll look for better ones later! These are more of whatever photos... no art to be seen here!

    The kitty one is really cute [​IMG]
    and the lighting is good. Did you use the flash?

    I should use spoiler tags too.

    Yeah, the flash was on. But I had set the flash to -1ev... I think. EXIF says Exposure N/A for some reason. I'm sure I set it because she would be all white that close to the flash! [​IMG]

    EDIT:
    What I really want to buy is a speedlight so I can control the flash a bit more (and flash more than 20 times per minute [​IMG] ) And a new lens because I'm just using the stock lens kit! [​IMG]

    Yeah I'm still on the stock one, it's a 18-130mm I think... and I don't have a flash on it beside the built-in one. But I'm not really interested in flashes, I don't think I would do a lot of portraits, but I will get a better one one day.

    Oh and how do you see the EXIF? (I save in RAW and opens them on Photoshop.)

    Oh, as far as EXIF goes, I'm pretty sure you can just [right-click > properties > summary tab > advanced view] in Windows XP. It'll give you a whole lot of information.

    That works for my jpegs. I don't normally use RAW mode unless I REALLY want to be serious. Of course with RAW mode, you might have to use your Nikon program to view the extra information.

    Oh well, Photoshop should be able to read it too, and I'm quite sure that the context menu should work too.
    I'm going to look at that tonight.
    Do you use manual settings are you only shoot with the auto setting?

    Manual if I'm feeling adventurous. Mainly to take photos without the flash and, hopefully, with a tripod.

    Auto if I'm just doing point-and-shoot photos with family and friends. There's also a portrait mode that I like for focusing on closer things and everything else blurry. I forget what that settings is called, but it has something to do with setting the -fstop to a 'low' number! Usually a number like 5.6 for me. I'll learn terminology later [​IMG]

    Aperture-priority [​IMG] But with portraiture, f/11 works best. Your pictures are nice though. I love the kitty shots but I'm biased because I love cats no matter what.

    Glad there's a topic on photography. I mainly do portrait photography right now but I'm expanding as I get more lenses. I shoot with a Canon Rebel XTi. I was going to get the 40D but decided to go with a cheaper camera so I can get more lenses. Anyways, here's two photos I'm fond of on my laptop as an example of my photography. Both were post-processed using actions in Photoshop.

    @LadyK
    Nice photos [​IMG]
    I like the first one the most.
    There's something beautiful about a pregnant woman [​IMG]
    @Green0scar
    I love the last one, I always like something with light effect like that.

    If a mod can change the topic name to GBAtemp Photography Topic! it would be sweet.

    @Akoji
    Thanks. That's me, by the way [​IMG]

    @Green0scar
    The last picture is great. The lighting is great, I would've loved it more if there was bokeh. What lens did you use?
