    Definitely looking for some advice.

    My background: owned Nikon DSLRs for about 6 years (started on D70, recently moved to D5100). Currently: Nikon 50mm 1.8, Nikon 18-300mm, Tamron 10-24mm, SB-600

    Went to school for software development, but absolutely love playing with the camera and always looking for suggestions on what I can do better.

    -Selective coloring

    -Motorcycles

    -mega contrast/saturation

    These are the photos of a standard bro who got his hands on a DSLR. I guess what you have to ask yourself is if you really have any interest in photography or just cool gear and loud colors.

    Selective coloring is something I’ve done at the request of others, and this is not necessarily a portfolio of my best work, just a collection of stuff that people asked to see. I understand that I still have a lot of work to do, and that my editing skills leave quite a bit to be desired. However, I consider higher contrast pictures to be part of my style and something I choose to do. I don’t really shoot faded/pastel pictures like some photogs do.

    Also, what’s wrong with shooting motorcycles, and why is the picture of the guy doing a no-handed wheelie specifically a bad shot? I’m not looking for praise, I’m definitely looking for constructive criticism but I want to know more about how pictures could be taken/edited differently to create a better image.

    What I’m saying is it’s not even clear what you are trying to achieve. You’re just pointing and shooting and boosting the colors. Pick some photos that you think are amazing and try to do them yourself.

    You could post the photos you want to emulate here so we can see what you’re trying to do.

    High contrast as a style isn’t really a style, The human eye is naturally attractive to contrasty images, but to someone that has ‘been-there, done-that’, it looks very cheesy to me.

     

    And the no-hand wheelie is a bad photograph mostly because the background is blown out to hell.

    Lol now I don’t want o look. And generally I’m reasonably nice, just really blunt.

     

    I want people to be good shooters. I’ll check this later tonight.
