    But tell me what I can do to improve myself. Keep in mind Im a noob, and my only light source was a window. And maybe I should have put NWS since Sniper (female) was giving Barrett (male) a bj. :mamoru:

    I like the composition on the 4th one (with the dogs looking at each other), but even with the awesome bokeh of the 50/1.4, there's just too much going on in the background (desk, computer, chair, blue LED...). Also a little fill flash would have helped add a catch light to Barrett's eye (that would have helped the 3rd one as well).

    Just my .01 ... I'm not good enough to offer .02

    Thanks.... I guess they aren't really photography since they weren't well though out... i was working and the dogs were playing and I grabbed the camera and started shootin but I tired to keep the composition in mind, but office background FTL

    OK... I agree I have more to learn, and shooting more is the only want to get better correct?

    Can you give me more info/how to do "fill flash" i never heard that term before.... your $.01 is better than what I got hahaahha.

    Yeah, the fill flash is the key here.

    The outside light is overpowering the ambient light, giving you two choices: Blow out the highlights or underexpose the rest of the shot...

    Neither are ideal.

    A small amount of fill flash would brighten up the inside of the room, but not overpower the window light, so you could keep the look you want with the light coming in from the window, but not blow all hell out of your highlights like you did.

    Shot #2 is a perfect example of this. Wherever the window light hits the dog is pure, no detail white. You had to do this in order to properly expose the rest of the shot. Bringing up the inside of the room to an acceptable level would allow you to get the same overall feel to the image, but keep those important details.

    where it's not blown out, it's too dark. where it's not too dark, it's boring. lets work on composition and clean up the background.

    Thats how I learned it. Also, get yourself familiarized w/ histograms... they're your best friend when you're editing. Understanding them helps you put the rest of the pieces together. :)
