Thursday Things :: A Photo Dump

I know I've been promising it for a minute, so here it is! Some of my adventures in DSLR "learn as you go" education! Tell me what y'all think!! Obviously, this post is super picture heavy, so it won't hurt my feelings if you need to skip on to the next one in your blogroll!

special thanks to the guys sitting in front of me at this game who had no idea I was taking their pictures.. I definitely took a bunch of pictures of their hats + jerseys too..

when I took this picture [from my apartment complex parking lot]  a boy walked up to me + goes "oh  that's a really cool camera, are you a photographer?" + I go "no, I'm a blogger!" and he looked at me like I had three heads...
oakland cemetery atlanta
Does this one look familiar? I took from the rooftop patio at 6 Feet Under, one of the days I insisted on toting my camera around for everything..
I'm not even a little sorry for two of almost the same picture. Can we talk about just how pretty Oakland Cemetery is? I wanted to sneak out + take pictures in there but we had other activities planned.. 
This didn't turn out like I wanted it to, but it's still pretty cool. We went to this terrifying dive bar [outstanding life choice to take my $600 camera TO A BAR] where the people were so mean + judgy because we weren't there usual patrons, so I was sitting watching the band + looked out the door, I couldn't get over the view of the Atlanta skyline from there.. 

A photo dump wouldn't be complete without the furry roommate... does anyone have any tips for getting rid of her green eyes [because it's not red eye, she doesn't look like a demon..] So, what do you think?! Anyone want me to take their picture? I am in love with this camera. Best investment I've made in my 25 short years here on this planet.

  3. Great shots! I really want to practice more with my DSLR! I need to find out how to get rid of the green eye thing too, my dog's eyes always do that and the red eye fix in my editing program doesn't work on it!

  4. I even tried like picmonkey's "red eye" tool + it doesn't recognize it. also the best thing I ever decided to do was drag that camera everywhere with me. I need to invest in a better strap though, since carrying it constantly leaves super cute bruises on my shoulder.. haha also THANK YOU!

  5. I can see improvement! I need to introduce you to my sister so y'all can go to all the sporting events and take pictures. She (my sister) went to Gwinnett tech for photography and works part time with some lady that gets her into a lot of the UGA games on the sidelines for fun action shots. :)

    Love these! I have a camera that is capable of doing SO much more than I am, so I'm gonna be following your photo exploits to see if I can pick up any tips you drop along the way.

    I just looked at the jersey photo again, and it hit me: "I have a SON named Jones" - honestly, it was like a surprise - "If he grows up to be a Braves fan, I'm totally going to hang this in his room ..." :)

  13. I am super proud of that one. I love love love my canon, but I can't present any argument against a Nikon, so really that was a lot of no help whatsoever...

  14. Love the pictures! I think with pets the best bet is to use natural lighting and no flash. I think there are fancy ways of using flash, but you know... I'm not a pro.

  15. I've heard that they are both similar but it just depends on which one you prefer over the other. I need to research more. :)
