    everyone on OTAP knows I'm a complete n00b in photography, so either comment on what I should be doing better (camera settings, angles, etc), or go eat a dick and stfu retard :slap:

    i think he was seriously congratulating you, what you've done is very hard to pull off. :coolugh:

    but on a more serious note, i would suggest not sharing your experimentation with the technical aspect of photography with otap, everyone goes through that phase(tons and tons of shallow dof, trust us, we get it). figure out the manual controls on your own, start out with the rule of thirds but dont get stuck with making every pictures about that. work on composition, look at your photos, and ask yourself first, is that a compelling photo? NOT, is the DoF shallow enough, is it sharp enough, or blah blah blah technical aspects. Just working SEEING an image that you would think to yourself that you want others to see. For some practice, pick a subject, use the same subject and take many many different pics of it trying different things, angles, distance to subject, keep in mind the background.

    No one owes you shit. We also don't give a fuck about shitty snap shots. If you want praise, go to POTN or some other shitty website, because we aren't going to tell you anything good about shitty pictures.

    Unless you took a decent picture that people might actually enjoy and give a fuck about, don't bother making another thread like this.

    but like stated, they are all normal pics that could of been taken with a point and shoot. Get creative now since you have a camera that can do creative things.

    Your pics are the vizio of tv's :mamoru:
