    I used a Nikon D40 for these. Its not my first time using an SLR but its the first time using a digital one rather than what I used to use which was a Nikon FM10 film SLR. All criticism is welcome and appreciated as long as its constructive.

    Welcome to OTAP :cool:

    Some comments

    1 - looks soft, be sure to always focus on the eyes in portraits, sharp eyes = good portrait

    2- get closer, get on the ground, make it more interesting than just a snapshot anyone would take.

    3- definitely better focus than the first image, be careful of distracting elements in the background

    keep these in mind during your next shoot.

    Oh I love taking pictures. Actually here's a sample of some pictures I took with my film slr. The scanner didn't do them any justice but still.
