    Default Clearly I Suck As a Photographer

    Ok so I've tried to muck around with the camera but to no avail.

    Teething ears.jpg Star is teething so her ears are all over the place. This was taken by firelight, but is washed out.

    Sisterly love.jpg Moo. While we sometimes fight like cat and dog we do still love each other to bits. Again taken by firelight; terrible photo, colour all washed out.

    Fire gazing.jpg. We watch telly Moo watches the fire. Crap photo again.

    Oops sprung.jpg. Well I am a show dog, what do you expect. Love Kelsey sitting in the background waiting for the sun. This was taken early this morning thru the kitchen window. Another crap photo.

    Anyway birthdays coming up soon and I'm thinking a camera would be nice, what are people suggestions. Please remember I'm hopeless with technology so simple but good, with particular emphasis on taking nice portraits and animals photo's.

    very nice shots I like #2 the best. Cute little pups! and you do not suck, you framed them all really nicely

    Plenty of cameras to choose from, we have 3 at our house, Nikon D90, sony cybershot T300 and a Panasonic Lumix TZ10. I rec the Lumix its great point and shot type camera. I love the D90 aswell, thats a good camera if you want to spend some time learning.

    Thanks Rebec, I mentioned it to hubby and he said to do some research, so I thought rather than wade thru all the camera sites I'd just ask here.

    I don't mind a camera that has different options etc as long as they are easy to navigate.

    I think they are lovely shots! (and not just 'cause they are of whippets!), I like the third one, I think the colour is actually quite pretty from the fire.

    MAC,

    Firstly, I don't think your photos suck at all

    Secondly, It VERY much depends on how much you wish to spend on a new camera. It also depends on if you want a compact point and shoot type, I have a Canon Ixus in that line, I also have a Canon digital SLR. The Ixus was around the $200 mark (was marked down due to being the last one, should have been around $300, and I only got that a couple of weeks ago), the DSLR however, was $1500 a couple of years ago.

    The reason I think the photos suck is because of the colour and I can do nothing to get rid of the spooky eye look when taking photos of a night.

    the Olympus I've got is very small, which is handy, it sits on the window sill and is ready to use all the time. It was purchased because its able to withstand travel in a motor cycle saddle bag. It's a few years old now.

    I suppose since I have that I'd be open to the suggestion of a larger camera and one that is a bit more fiddly to use.

    Getting the whippets to sit still for a shot is easy, just produce heat and bingo, you have a dog that can sit or lay still for hours.

    Thanks for the positive feed back but the camera, or probably me, just didn't capture the colours etc.

    Yep GAG the puppets are growing. Final booster this week. They are a naughty handful. Full of mischief. I handed them over to someone to hold for me on the weekend while at a show while I was in with another dog and they couldn't wait to hand them back. Totally terrorised their great big RR.
