I've got an Olympus E500, and i probably dont use it to its full potential to be honest. i'm probably still not accustom to the ins and outs of my camera yet.

Excellent first and last dog pics :D the young girl photo's well. Its good when you capture them when they dont look at the camera. Nicely done.

Just a quick pointer regaring the pics of the dog and child... its always best to get down to their level... i.e. camera at eye level... can't help being put off a little by the fact you're looking down slightly on a lot of them.

 

If you get down to their eye level it brings you in to their world almost like looking through the eyes of another child or dog, rather than an adult towering over them.

 

i.e:

If i hadnt been lying down on the carpet and was just stood over the child it would have removed a lot of the intamacy in the photo

Is good advice for most images as well. Insects, plants, children & pets. All look better at their level.

You've captured some nice and very cute moments with the pets here... here's a few pointers and feedback:

Nice pic, if you really want something with the WOW factor though maybe you could take this pic from the point of view of the person holding out the hand... i.e you hold out one hand, camera in the other (remember to crouch down to the dogs eye level) and then take the pic. This will give a much more intimate picture.

 

 

user6594_pic13683_1242571538.jpg

 

Not bad, the foot in the picture is a bit distracting... its important to remember that your background is as important as the subject itself... a foot and shoe shouldnt be in this picture and it distracts from the main subject (i.e. the dog)

 

 

user6594_pic13686_1242571911.jpg

 

Very cute, better angle as you're more at the dogs eye level... again the background doesn't do much for the photo (half of a person that shouldnt be there) but its a nice photo none the less

 

 

user6594_pic14099_1243274225.jpg

 

Nice pic, but again the background is distracting... my mind instantly thinks... "what the hell is that pink thing?" rather than "cute dog"

 

 

user6594_pic14101_1243274278.jpg

 

I like this pic... one slight pointer that I experimented with myself with my dog was to lie down on the floor, put the camera so the underneath was resting on the floor, tilt it slighty upwards so dog was in shot and it made a great photo... again its about getting down to the dogs eye level... if that means doing that then so be it.

 

Thats just a slight pointer rather than a criticism though as like I say I like the pic... the background is much better too

 

 

user6594_pic14102_1243274278.jpg

 

What is the dog looking at? If you position the dog in the right 3rd of the picture, it opens up the side it is looking at... this opens up the picture and gives much more sense of "oh i wonder whats over there"... let the dogs eyes tell a story.

 

Again you needed to be lower for this pic.

 

background better in this one though

 

 

user6594_pic30251_1271777953.jpg

 

Cute!

 

 

user6594_pic30252_1271777953.jpg

 

Uber cute!!!

 

 

user6594_pic30253_1271777953.jpg

 

Your cat is such a poser lol! Only thing bad I would say about this photo (and this is just me i'm sure) is that it kind of looks like the dog is eating the cat lol. Probs just me though and its a very cute pic!

 

 

user6594_pic30254_1271778014.jpg

 

Ouch poor dog lol! Maybe if you'd been a bit more side on you'd have captured the moment a bit better, the back of the cat doesnt really bring the viewer in to the action

 

 

user6594_pic32482_1276731157.jpg

 

Perfect height!!! Really like this one! Again the background could be a little bit better... removing the cushion would have left you with a blank background but its not too distracting. I think also its a little under exposed but that could be easily fixed in photoshop. Overall really good though!

 

 

user6594_pic32485_1276731244.jpg

 

Angle totaly wrong, you've cut off one of the paws which is holding the "prop" in this pic... if you'd dropped down to eye level this could have been a cracking pic so you're not far off from getting a great pic here, but sometimes one small thing can spoil a pic.

 

 

user6594_pic32486_1276731244.jpg

 

Looks menacing! Not keen to be honest. However from a compostion point of view you've filled the frame nicely which is a good technique to use.

 

 

Sorry if thats a bit overly critical... I think you have an eye for a good pic, and with a few small tweaks you could be getting great pics. The things i've mentioned work for people too so they are good things to use.

 

Like I said the things you need to look at are:

 

Backgrounds... make sure they dont distract

Get down to eye level

 

I hope the comments are helpful and not overly critical... I apologise if they are as like I said you've got a good eye for a pic but your technical composition sometimes lets the pic down a wee bit.

I'm open to constructive criticism, and thanks for your advice. :lol:

 

 

No problem... tbh I have been reading A LOT about photography and composition recently and I think thats what's helped me get a better understanding of photography. I have a pic I took of a beach, sea and sky as my backdrop on my laptop at home... always thought it was a nice pic but never understood why until a few weeks back... then after reading something on the web I thought "ahhh thats why it works!" Total fluke at the time but i'd got the composition bang on.

 

I would recommend this website for you to read up on photography techniques:

 

http://www.digital-photography-school.com/

 

I've used this a lot and its a great website. There's a lot of stuff on here so you need to look through to find what you want... but its got some excellent tips!!!

 

This is a great starting point... you might know some or quite a lot of the areas already but there's lots of great stuff on there.

 

http://www.digital-photography-school.com/...ers-should-know

 

 

I know you're taking pics of pets, but i'd class this a portrait photography, so have a look at tips for that style of photography and that will help improve your technical abilities too.

 

 

Like I said you're almost there and I look forward to seeing more of your images in the future :rolleyes:

Nice one, the beach is a great place for dogs as they love it! I like the fact you're capturing "moments" in your pictures btw... thats a really good thing you either understand or just do naturally... either way its a good skill to have!

Great dogs aswell. (yours)

 

How do you stop them tearing the cats head off but?

Well the dog that has the coat on in the snow pictures is mine, the others aren't, they are Bassets that we go on the our Basset Hound dog walk with every sunday. When we 1st got our kitten our dog must of thought it was one of her puppies and was carrying it around in its mouth, and its the dog who is the one that wants to play with the cat all the time.

Nothing great, but just a couple of pictures before i moved my camera into my new camera bag. For me, one of the photos feels slightly out of focus, but maybe its just my eyes.

You've got a very shallow depth of field so you likely had a large aperture. When doing so the main thing to have in focus is the eyes. Top one I think looks ok, bottom one I think the focus point was just above them. Canny anway.
