    Happy AP Anniversary to Me!

    Well, 12 months ago, 20th December 2011, I joined AP in search of an education and to somehow learn how to take a photograph. What can I say...I think I've learnt something here! ( and still have a membership! )

    Thank you to everyone who ever said I could do better, gave their ideas, and bless you those who told me how to do better (or directed me to a good book /site /resource). It has all been of value.

    The learning continues 2013 and I look forward to it all.

    For reference I have posted the first photo I took with my new camera last year ( pre AP) and offer the following self critique for your enjoyment:

    firstphotopentax.jpg

    "what the heck?"

    composition = half a speaker, a cat with no feet, and a tree with no roots....hhmmm. have now learnt to get all the bits in the shot at least.

    background = white blinding window glare to nowhere

    subject matter = again, a speaker a cat and a tree? inspiring stuff

    DOF = okay, not bad for a beginner I guess. I can see the cat.

    Focus = is there slight movement in this shot? I think so. Maybe a faster shutter speed would help there, or just use " moving object" setting

    Exposure = yep, shooting into the light - enough said

    RAW = nope, jpg

    Processing = huh?

    ISO = had no idea ( but I still use auto mostly )

    what else? I'll leave it to you guys....
    happy critiquing everyone & again, my thanks to you Happy Anniversary Me.

    Just adding to your analogy: by and by it'll become common fare.
