Default Pics Of My Guitar

I just want to show off my new camera, so I took some pictures of my guitar.
It's a Nikon D7000.

One thing you might enjoy practicing is getting your color balance and saturation/contrast to be well-matched in a set. The thing that struck me in this small set of similar photos is how wildly the color of the guitar appears to vary from shot to shot. FWIW

Looks pretty good. Noise free.

What lens did you use?

Good job, Bob...!

Color looks fine to me... I would imagine the finish on that guitar (like many I've
seen) is designed to change color tone/hue depending on the angle of the light
and the angle in which you view it...

Just a guess though...

That certainly would not be true of the guitar neck, which also shows significant variation. I mentioned this because matching the exposure and WB of a set is an easy skill to master, but one that is worth developing if one is serious about one's skills. That appeared to be what the OP was looking for -- I was not slamming him, but suggesting a concrete way that he could progress in the hobby.

Thanks everyone.

I am just a beginner and this is the first time I used manual mode. I just used the aperture and shutter to get the exposure meter to the middle. I know there is alot more to it than that, but I thought I would start with the basics.
