Amused

focal length: 50 mm
shutter speed: 1/100
aperture: f/1.8
ISO: 1600
flash: none
Sometimes the composition, angle or settings may not be ideal, but when you’re photographing children, special moments are hard to catch. Hopefully you’ll be able to fix things in post processing but things like composition aren’t as easy to correct unless you have room to crop. [...]

Mohawk

focal length: 50 mm
shutter speed: 1/250
aperture: f/1.8
ISO: 1600
flash: none

focal length: 50 mm
shutter speed: 1/250
aperture: f/1.8
ISO: 800
flash: none
This image is an example of using the foreground and background as a frame. It’s important to keep the horizontal lines straight, unless you deliberately tilt. To help you, some eyepieces have guide lines you can use to keep your ‘horizons’ straight. You can [...]
