  • How to start taking photos of myself without feeling awkward and uncomfortable?

    Best answer: Why do you want to do this? Is it to keep up with the hoards of people out there doing the same? Get on with life and forget about selfies.

    If you really feel you must do this, go on youtube and learn the basics of posing and practice for a week.

    Best answer: Simple question, very complex answer. Since you are just starting experiment with BOTH methods and see which works best for you and which looks best to you. If you like a thick textural look then staring dark and layering lighter color ending with white gives a thick paint layer on the canvas. Working with the lighter color and adding thin layers of darker and darker works best with a flat thin paint skin is required. Starting light and working into shadows is used for transparent water colors and the only way to get color gradients. With oils a layer of darker underpainting (look this word up -it's an important technique you need to know) is first used to give richness and depth to the entire canvas. Acrylic can be thinned like watercolors or it can be as thick as oil paint so you can do either. As you progress on your art journey the method by which you handle dark to light will become part of your signature artist's style.

  • Was the first subject matter to ever be painted about animals?

    Best answer: No, depictions of animals are by far the most common themes in cave painting; but the oldest cave paintings are not animals.

    Hello.. This is a couple of years old, it's my byproduct of procrastinating during my exam period at 3am. I know it's not great (I was 17), the hands and feet aren't good, but in my defence I was using a lump of charcoal and I couldn't sharpen it.. Any advice/constructive criticism would be very much appreciated! I'm actually taking a year out from college and so I want to work on something of interest so I want to get back into doodling. I'm tempted to build up a portfolio and go down the tattoo apprentice route, but I'm not sure.

  • Should I still keep my Canon 18-55mm kit lens if I have a 50mm stm 1.8 lens?

    Best answer: As someone who's been taking photos since the mid 1980s, I can tell you that I've purchased gear with two different mind sets. One mindset is the one where I buy gear because I think I might need it. The second mindset is one where I have come across situations where my current set of lenses just could... show more
    Best answer: As someone who's been taking photos since the mid 1980s, I can tell you that I've purchased gear with two different mind sets. One mindset is the one where I buy gear because I think I might need it. The second mindset is one where I have come across situations where my current set of lenses just could not allow me to get the type of shot that I wanted, so I used that to guide my buying decisions. The 1st mindset has led me to buy stuff that I've used a couple of times and then put in my closet for eternity. The 2nd mindset has let me to buy gear that I've used a thousand times and wouldn't leave home without.

    So let your experience guide you. If you use the 18-55mm kit lens and you like the results, then keep it. If it doesn't meet your expectations or needs, then sell it and replace it with some that does. Maybe you need a lens with a larger aperture because you want to blur out backgrounds. Maybe you need a lens with image stabilization. Maybe you need a totally different focal length. Maybe you need all of the above.

    Listen, no one is going to tell you that the 18-55mm is a great lens, because it isn't. But on the other hand, it's not bad either. It's designed for general purpose photography which is basically comprised of family shots, landscapes of where people visit and photos of friends along with other miscellaneous stuff like the desert dish at the fancy restaurant. Once you get a little more serious about photography and as result increase your diversity of subjects, that's when the 18-55mm quickly becomes inadequate. So think about your photographic experiences and if you discover that the 18-55mm is just sitting in your bag gathering dust, or it's somehow preventing you from expressing your vision (i.e. getting the shot the way you want when you want) then sell it and get something else.
