    Best answer: Anybody who would think you're a perv for that are perverts themselves who are not comfortable with their own lives. Its not a bad thing, not at all. Its art. The female body is perhaps the most beautiful thing on this planet, if you ask me. Anybody remember Titanic? Jack drew the picture of Rose naked on the couch and no one frowned upon that. It was beautiful. Art usually is beautiful. I say do it. Draw what you want to draw, and anybody who gives you a hard time doesn't deserve to feast their eyes upon your glory.

    Best answer: I can tell that you're trying to "see" the world in a unique way. Some of your shots are pretty good, for a beginner. Others should be removed from your portfolio, and over time they will all be.

    A consistent mistake I see you making is in your composition. Someone wrote here how they just loved the shot of the face on the building. But in terms of its composition, it's a failure. Why did you crop off the chin? In photography, you can do things "a little bit." In this shot, you cropped a little bit of the face. Doing things this way makes the image look like a mistake. And that's my impression of this shot. That you didn't notice that you were cropping the chin out of the shot. So to me, it looks like a mistake.

    The shot of street sign and the sky in the background is among the weakest of your shots and should be deleted from your portfolio. When looking at it, the shadows are too dark, I just don't understand what you want me to look at. The street sign is placed so low in the frame that you cropped a bit of the corner off. Why did you do that? What did this kind of crop add to the shot? If you don't know, then it's a mistake.

    Same thing with the B&W shot of the woman touching her ear. Why did you crop the top of her head off? Why did you shoot this image horizontally when her body lines are clearly in the vertical? Shooting in the horizontal created a large amount of black negative space on either side. Why did you include those areas in the shot? What does the inclusion of the negative space add to the narrative of the shot? My point is not to beat you over the head with your mistakes. It's to point out that as a photographer you're a story teller. Everything in the shot should support the story, and if it doesn't then it shouldn't be in the shot in the first place.

    The next shot is of the high-angle shot of the man laying on the ground. Why did you choose this high angle? Not saying it's wrong, but just making a point that you had put any thought into what you were doing, you'd have an answer. If you do, then great. Also, why did you not show his face? Adding the face will add a lot of impact to the shot. Maybe you had a legitimate reason, maybe you didn't consider it, I certainly have no way of knowing.

    The next shot is plain bad. What am I looking at? The image is so dark that it's hard to tell what's going on. Why did you crop the concrete block in the foreground so much? Having two dominate subjects (concrete block & person in the background) confuses the viewer. It is just like have two subjects in a sentence. As with any written language, the language of photography has certain grammatical rules which you must know and understand in order to create a compelling shot.

    The next shot is of the street vendors. This is a good example of studying the scene for juxtaposition. Why did you place the pole over the girl's face? My guess is that you never saw it in the frame. Also, their heads are lined up the half-way in the frame. This created too much space above the head, and it cropped off an important part of the image, namely the vending cart. Watch your backgrounds as this image has a lot of distractions. Use a larger aperture to blur these distractions out. I can tell you didn't wait long at this scene before taking the shot and moving on. Great street scene come with patience. Find a good scene with great light and wait for something great to happen. In this case, wait for a customer to enter the scene. Showing interaction between the vendor and the customer would have made a much more compelling shot that the girl looking down at who knows what.

    The next shot is of someone's back walking down an ally. Again, why did you crop 1/2 of the person's back? Why did you juxtapose the punk rocker so that it looks like he's growing out of the side of the subject's head? Never juxtapose stuff coming out of people's heads - that' s just a photo 101 mistake.

    The next shot of the flowers is just bad with absolutely no sense of composition, no sense of what the main subject should be. You did this by placing a huge dark and empty area in the center of the frame, and then you placed the red flowers too close to the edge of the frame. You need to understand composition and visual literacy. Adding elements up against the frame creates a feeling of tension. Tension and flowers is probably what you wanted to convey, right?

    The next shot is of the couple at the flower shot. This had all of the right elements: great colors, two people interacting (two interesting people interacting with each other), and good light. You were too far away to make this a successful shot. The background was too much in focus which created a cluttered background. The people were not placed well within the frame (think about composition, rule of thirds, golden ratio).

    So this should provide you with a good deal to think about. Go on youtube and do searches for visual literacy, rule of thirds, golden ratio in art design. Buy photography books showcasing the works of great photographers. You must study great work in order to build up your own visual library of great images. Go to museums and study painters and photographers. How can you be expected to write a great novel if you've never read one before? You can't. So it is with photography. You can't be expected to be born with some kind of special knowledge of what constitutes a great photograph. You have to study and learn it which takes a lot of time. Keep shooting and next year you probably wont' have any of these shots in your portfolio - they will all be better ones!

    That's how growth goes. You learn a bit and see an increase in your work for a while. Then you plateau for a while until another shot makes you realize that you've grown a bit. It comes in spurts over years, so don't get impatient.

    I am inspired by demons in the Bible, I like to draw nudity, angels, provocative imagery, anything linked in with death etc. These are my inspirations and I love drawing dark art. Because my parents are very Catholic (I'm atheist), they think I'll be possessed by the devil if I keep drawing that and they said they're disappointed with me. Because of this, every time I draw I restrict myself because I think "What if they get pissed off again if I post it online?" I don't want to change my style just for them. Especially now that I am 18, just got out of school and I'm going into the metal music industry (getting commissions for band logos and gruesome album covers). How do I make them understand that I'm not doing this to annoy them?

  • What is a great quality simple camera for newborn photography?

    Best answer: The answer depends upon your budget, your needs and your expectations. Most people will be happy with a DSLR or mirrorless along with the kit lens and a 50mm f/1.8 prime lens for those low-light situations. Don't forget to get an external flash because you shouldn't use the flash that's built into the camera (especially for newborn photos).

    Pentax K-70 is the best in it's class. It is extremely easy to use and has features that you'll need which aren't found in any Canon or Nikon.

    If a DSLR is too much of a camera, then a mirrorless like a Sony Alpha a6300, a6500 would be just as capable.

    If a mirrorless is still too much, then a Sony RX100, Canon G series, Olympus OEM EM-10 are all good cameras. The EM10 has the added benefit of being able to change lenses. Panasonic GH4/GH5 can change lenses too, but unlike anything from Canon, Nikon, Fujifilm, Olympus or Pentax, the video capabilities and quality of the GH4 and 5 are among the best of all digital cameras; only being beaten by true camcorders.

    Best answer: Camera setup

    * Mount the camera on a tripod and frame your shot
    * Place the lens in the manual mode and focus the stars
    * Set the white balance to Daylight
    * Place the camera in the manual mode and use the 30 second exposure time.
    * Lock the mirror up.
    * Turn the VR on your lens
    * Make sure that you are at least 50 miles away from any civilization (which causes light pollution)

    You also need to make sure that ANY of the noise reduction features are turned off.

    Starting a 1:00 in the video ending at about 1:06, there is a discussion about usable ISO settings and how to setup your camera for shooting wide field astrophotography
