First DSLR pics... Canon 400D

I'm a complete novice at photography and I'm tired of using point and shot cameras. I've only had the camera a day or two and I've found myself keeping out of the set basic functions and dipping into the programable creative mode. I've also come to hate using the flash...

Anyway, here's some shite for your visual pleasure.

Here's another visual assault on your eyeballs.

The chap in the right hand bottom of the shot looks awfully suspicious. I wonder if he's the perp the police are looking for?



Some colour saturation...



Green trees...

Seeing as I don't have a tripod yet, I've employed the use of some books to take these long exposure shots..

I'm really beginning to grasp how the camera functions and understanding how shutter times and aperture work.

Ultimately, your lens is very important and the stock lens that comes with the camera is good for the job, but it does not do the camera justice. Good lenses are a must for any photographer and my next investment will be down that route.

Man, good lenses are expensive (to me).


Posted by Cruise Director on 05-04-2010 04:11 AM:

CR, something I did to better help me with exposure and aperature understanding was to go to Flickr. Most of the pictures on there have the settings the photographer used as well as the lens and mm settings.


Posted by Cockney_Rebel on 05-05-2010 06:34 AM:

I've got a Flickr account!

I like your random shots of London. [p]


Posted by Cockney_Rebel on 05-07-2010 06:29 PM:

Cheers.

I really want a better lens but the lens I want is quite expensive. More than the camera.

The building is situated on London Wall, EC2. We have another building on Bishopsgate which is much taller. 25 floors and bang in the middle of the city. I'll be working there on Monday.

nice photos, C_R! looking forward to seeing more as you develop your skill and familiarity with your camera!

The Canon 400D (Rebel XTI in the USA) came out in late 2006 and was priced in the UK at 719 (with lens kit) on release. That's big money to your average person looking for an entry level DSLR. I picked mine up for 250 (used, but in mint condition) from the local CEX store. The leads and data cables were still fresh and unopened and it came with a Ultra II 4 gig CF card. Everything in the box was as good as new. I think I got a result.

I'm looking at a battery grip and a tripod next and budget permitting, a lens.


Posted by fubar on 05-08-2010 10:54 PM:

The 400D is a nice camera. If you are going to spend more money on photography, spend it on lenses. Try buying a nifty 50. That is a 50mm f/1.4 or f/1.8 lens. They are a blast to use, usually very sharp, allow very shallow depth of focus (subject isolation), and you can shoot in much less light.

And if you can swing it, I believe Canon has a stellar 50mm f/1.2. You can probably find it used for a couple large.

Also, I like a few in the first batch. And don't be afraid of black and white photos.

Here's that 50 f1.2, but since the 400D has a cropped sensor, you might want to get a 35 f/1.4.
