So im looking to buy a T2i for the video this winter, but the photography has also intrigued me. My graphics teacher let me take the school DSLR out for the weekend and heres what i consider some good shots.
Let me know things I could do better or even if you enjoyed the shots!
shot 1 needed better focus and a faster shutter speed, same with shot two. Three was somewhat boring. I like 4 a lot, good angle and timing. I would enjoy 5 a lot more if the focus was on the skater and not the rail, it would have been a cool shot.
Work on getting the focus right. There should be a setting to focus on a single point, use this setting and focus on the rider.
For fast moving subjects, work with fast shutter time / high ISO. Consider shooting in the S mode of your camera.
My main comment: the black clothing of the skier doesn't contrast enough against the dark green background. If the skier would have been wearing something red/yellow/orange, the first two photos would have been a lot better. Or the other way round, try to look for a background that contrasts better. Keep in mind: reds pop out, blues/greens recede.
The first rollerblader shot is quite nice in my opinion.
4 was my favorite, the angle was nice and your general subject was in focus. For the other ones you might want to try and focus before and then just take the picture as apposed to auto-focusing on the spot
Why not? If he's limited by the natural light, ramping up the ISO will give him fast enough shutter speeds to eliminate blur. Throw the picture through noise reduction in post, and it'll look like you shot it at 100.
look you wanna use 100 on a super sunny day. 400 in like the shade or end of the day or cloudy and 800 if you REALLY need to. 800 and up theres mad noise. always use it in M mode or you will never understand how a camera works. faster shutter= less light. bigger aperture (smaller f/stop)= more light. keep experimenting with the cam andeventually you'll get it...
plus the lens is a 18-55 f/ 3.5 - 5.6 haha

i like the last photo good angle, just needed to be in focus, and maybe a wider aperture to create a shallow depth of field, you need to have a read up on that to see how ajusting the aperture creates a deeper or shallower depth of feild, basically more or less foucus, keep shooting, try not to place everthing in the centre of the photo read about rule of thirds and use of diagonals and leading lines, also i would recommend to evaluate other peoples work that you like that helped me out a lot to see what they are doing and how to put it into my work. keep it up
