Here's a few I've taken. I use a Nikon D5000. Had it for quite a while. I'm admittedly not very good with the camera, as I haven't really dove deep into the various settings and such. It's a glorified point-and-shoot camera in my hands, I'm afraid.

@Raz007 thats kinda why i wanted to get this thread going. and what a like about similar ones elsewhere. you have a pic on a beach, some other dude has a pic on a beach, but they look, different. why? how? personally, i like having a place where i can study the two, to try and find out on my own. or, just ask the person. if theyre nice (like the interior of Bling's sti), maybe theyll tell you. then apply it to your own work.

Yeah, I'd love to see some discussion on how some of these shots are taken. I need to get into the apertures, shutter speeds, and ISOs and whatnot.

That is a great thing to add for sure. Very helpful for understanding how to recreate some of the same shots yourself. The nasioc dslr thread used to be big on that and I used to post mine all the time but have become lax. I will def start doing it again. You can always click through my images to my flickr as well, it houses the data right below the image.

Nice pictures so far!
I've owned my a6000 for about 3-4 years now. I'd suggest it to anybody just getting into photography. Although, if you have the extra money the 6300 or 6500 are obviously great options as well. An A7 model will definitely be in my future bag.

If you're okay with having people think you have sub par gear because your camera body has a smaller footprint than an iPhone 7, then the a6000 is the camera for you.

this made me think of a quote from someone. and my personal "issue" (or at least what bothers me most, on my stuff, on the daily). and why that comment i had about "you got a shot on a beach, this other dude has a shot on a beach......etc etc" flew outta my mouht. i can follow/replicate instructions i come across, based on data like Bling mentioned, or verbal suggestions. just move this dial that way, change this number to so and so, spin this other thing, then push the button. but theres something missing on mine....

my initial comment:

Of course, technically they are both the same, but thinking about it this way is a nice way to separate the two via intent. Don't just show me what was there, show me what you want me to see.


The Prestige.

^^^imo, thats the more important part. compared to buttons and numbers.
and the notion that when also carried over into the post processing stage...is the reason certain photos really nail it.
my picture:

my photograph:

outside of the post processing...some things that pop out to me, on that final version, vs the one above it....
overall angle, vs the garage door.
the orientation of the wheel itself, vs the door (yes the wheel should be spun a touch more. i failed).
even having the door in there at all.
the yellow sticker on wheels barrel.
my angle, vs the face of the wheel. like how high/low i am.

That's a good way of putting it. I'll be honest, I don't do any post-processing on any of my photos. The way they come out of the camera is the way they stay. Really should learn how to do that too!!

Here's a few from back home in NC.

@Raz007 sorry, i added more to my post, then deleted, then added again.

on the editing thing...imo, its very important. not that a photo isnt nice unless its been processed...but more so to really make it shine. and show me the vibe, scenario, etc. and i dont mean that someone has to do it. but if you take a photo, and feel it doesnt accurately represent what you were feeling, and thinking, when looking at the subject...or what you really want to tell me about that night downtown...then that might be your first clue.

like your downtown car show one there. that would probably look bonkers, if all the cars werent red/orange.

Yeah, I agree. It was a great day out there, I just didn't know how to use the camera well enough to capture the moments.

I tried getting a blur photo:

personally, i think youre actually usually pretty good at capturing moments. whether its a detail shot, or a general ambiance shot...the editing process would just help showcase it.

on your ones above...car show stuff is tough. usually kills it. like since the area is usually chaos and distracting, all in all...and youre left with weird angles, random people random places, weird crops, etc.
