Default Enjoying & learning with my E-410

Hi everyone!

I just started learning photography. So, I don't know what I'm doing. I have tried several cameras and finally found the right camera for me. Since it's very light, I carry it with me everywhere I go. I got a lot to learn, but it has been very fun.

Anyway, I took these photos this morning. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks for looking!

- Hiro

Very well done, Hiro-

Those two images really look good. What camera are you using?

Hi Sarah,

Thank you very much. I'm using the E-410 w/14-42mm kit lens.

Default Olympus E-410 Photo Sample

Hi there, Hiro-

With the E-410 lacking IS, as long as you keep the shutter speed up, it is a very capable camera. Here is an E-410 shot that took a Second Place Award at our little county fair. It was taken with the ZD 14-42 lens as well. Notice the size of the two men standing in the foreground compared to the cranes. The unusual cropping caught the judges attention.

Have a great day.

Good morning Sarah!

That is a great shot. Very nice color and great composition.

I've got a lot to learn about composition.

Thanks for sharing. I think I learned something from your photo.


Have a great day.

Thanks for the nice compliment, Hiro-

That is exactly what the folders are for: to help each other!

Have a great day.

A couple of more photos. I'm not really satisfied with the results.

1). It was a windy day, so I used the shutter priority mode. The color looks like what I saw, but as you can see, the composition is not great.



1/125, f/10, ISO 800.

2). Moon flower. I used the program AE mode, but I think I should have used the aperture priority mode. Also, I couldn't hold my camera steady.



3). I tweaked saturation a bit.




4). Aiko. I tweaked the photo heavily w/photo editing program just for fun.

Hiro-

I really like your cat photo. It has a nice amount of "pop" to it.
