Not too bad for a first-time photographer, I guess:

Thanksgiving

Lynn Canyon Park, North Vancouver. In the middle of this one trail there are two stumps (probably one stump that got split into two, more likely) that look like a pair of hands held up in prayer. I wish I could fix the light, though.

PS: One of my first sunset photos with the digital camera.

I like that first photo, Lady Wu! :)

- - - - -

We just went out and purchased a Nikon D50, which I was already very much looking forward to, but I just barely got to play around with it for my first time. It was getting dark outside, and I decided to see how well I could take photographs under different conditions—especially those that my poor old Sony couldn’t handle as well (like night photography and dim-light photography in general, along with closeup photography). I am already in love with this thing, and this is using the standard lense that came with it. We’ve already got a lense for long-distance photography, but I have yet to enjoy one for close-up photography. I may not even need/want one at this point…

Here’s the detail I got on a random shot in the backyard…

I’m already thrilled with it. If you’ve got broadband, see it in high resolution!

Here are two other photographs I took playing around:

By a bush, looking over our neighborhood swimming pool:

Across a small field and canal behind our house, into a little woodland-like area (while dim outside!):

I made that pool one my screen desktop picture. :)

I was hesitant about buying a Nikon, though I’ve heard good things, but I’ve changed my mind already. I haven’t even started learning this thing yet. Might see some fun photographs from me in the future!

Just a narrow road, very common around here.

When I moved into this apartment at first, it was in the fall and there weren't a lot of flowers in the flowerbed on the patio. But patience is rewarded, and this week I found that the previous people have put in tulip bulbs galore! (I'm hopeless with gardening, and couldn't tell a tulip bulb from a shallot. :oops: )

Oh, I also cheated and did a bit of touching up with Picasa, just for fun effects.

Tips on night-time photography with a digital camera? The moon is shining brightly over the river now. I'd like to take a picture of it, but don't know how to get the lighting right. Flash? No flash?

PS: This is the best I could do...

I like no flash, slow exposure.

Obviously, mount it on something like a tripod or a ledge, and use a timer to avoid shaking it with your hand as you take the pic.

PS: Looks good anyway! :D

You should have a nighttime feature in your camera if it is digital. You want flash, you need extra exposure so if you can have multi-flash that would be great. Unfortunatly lighting makes the picture and at night from a distance you don't have much to work with. Try lightining up the picture. Look into the auto-levels in your camera as well as the white balance.
eh, ill find something witty to put here later.

Would anyone care to recommend a good digital picture frame? I'm going to buy one for my mom.
