Photography Issues

Neophyte photographer here!!! I'm trying to learn about taking better photographs. Most of the time "natural light" photos turn out the best. However, if you don't know what you are doing, you may turn off your flash & think that the kitchen light is "natural light". Well, it's not. The photo to the left was taken with just the kitchen light & no flash...while I was thinking, "Cool! Natural Light!". You can't even see the blue color of the bin! Then I took one with a flash...and guess what? The colors are more true in the photo at the right! So without taking classes, it sure is slow learning! Trial and error!

I feel your pain! I'm trying to learn about lighting as well...I don't like the flash either, but unfortunately it does seem to be better most of the time, not only for the color but also the crispness of the picture.

If I learn anything valuable I'll let you know. :)

I'm thinking to that the natural daylight outside might be good to try to. One has to keep trying to find the right lighting that's for sure.

When I did the ones of the angels I changed the settings a few times, to see what would work. Still need to re-shoot some of those photo's.

Hi you two,
AND it's all different for digital than it is for regular cameras! I just don't have the time to do a whole set up with lighting & backdrops & things! But I'll learn it by trial & error...most likely after the move! ;)
Warmest aloha,
