Id say its amazing for portrait close ups. Have you posted any shots of closeups with people using the 85mm f1.4?

 

Its hard to find good images online

Spring is finally here...

I was somewhat familiar with using a Nikon D3000 so i decided on buying my very first DSLR: Nikon D3200.

I will admit i was kind of new with the terminology like ISO, F-stop, exposure time, metering, etc.
dedicated myself to study up and so far i have taken a few photos i feel are worthy.

decided on taking a walk out on the cloudy, post-moist Coastal Virginian weather


(taken with a D3000, just showing the D3200)


F/7.1
1/8 sec
ISO 800


F/6.3
1/640 sec
ISO 400


I think the stratus clouds are fantastic
F/7.1
1/800 sec
ISO 200


F/7.1
1/160 sec
ISO 800

Tips, advice, constructive criticism, and suggestions are very appreciated.
I am quite new to the hobby, but i am very aspiring to get better at various styles of photography.

Camera: Nikon D3200
Lens: Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm (essentially the included kit lens)


I do have some ideas for recording/ shooting some Airsoft sports action.
And i am thinking of saving for a telephoto lens for sports and insect/bird photography.

D-SLR photography has made a slight change to how i see the world around me now.
I may look at a tree, building, or even a sign and ponder the idea if i may take a photo of it.

That new way of seeing is exciting, isn't it! My only advice is to think about *making* pictures instead of *taking* them. HOW you photograph something can be more important than WHAT you photograph.

just toying around with settings on a dark-outside
April 9, 2014 7:45pm

wanted to see the effect i could make if i made the illusion that the outside was lighter
F-stop: f/5
Exposure Time: 1/5 sec
ISO 3200 (i probably should have gone 1600 due to noise)

and i've grown to using Manual focus alot more.

Was walking around this morning but can't find anything interesting to shoot. Found this bird to practice focusing with a manual lens.

I apologize if this makes anyone hungry for fresh off-the-assembly Krispy Kreme Doughnuts
Just toying with Shallow DOF, which is slightly intricate to achieve with the DX AF-S 18-55mm kit lens



Today was my sister's birthday and she really wanted some Krispy Kreme doughnuts; truly, it was our first time to ever eat fresh krispy kreme doughnuts so the experience was great.



f/5.6
1/40 sec exposure
ISO-400
Nikon D3200
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm kit lens



f/5.6
1/20 sec exposure
ISO-400
Nikon D3200
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm kit lens


I'll have LOTS of fun once i buy myself a nice 50mm Prime lens.

Are you using auto white balance? Those could be a bit better color wise.
