Photography practice. I wasn’t sure I’d have anything worth posting this early in the process of learning photography. I’ve been advised that the first 10,000 photos I take will be crap, however this one came out okay. I think
The horizon line is a little off, but I was able to hide that by taking the leaning lamp post out of the frame. One mistake I made was retouching this within Instagram itself, which I was advised not to do. It looks good when viewing it on IG through a mobile device, but looks grainy through a laptop and especially when compared to the original (which is below for comparison’s sake). I definitely won’t do that again.
I definitely like the Black and White photos, so will explore that some more. One of the things that I’ve realised I’m missing is having someone to critique my work. I can’t do this in isolation and need the feedback. So, that’s a problem I’ll have to solve in the short term and as I move forward.
The equipment I used plus settings are listed below:
Exposure time: 1/30 sec
Focal length: 29mm
Max aperture: 4.1
