I want for a walk around my area today with my cousin and decided to give my digital camera a try to get some of the artistic urges inside me out and into some pictures. I used a Fujifilm A700 I recieved for christmas which up until now has only been used for snapshots, I've never used a point/shoot for art shots but having not taken any for nearly 6 months, I decided to forego the wait for a digital SLR. The first 3 pictures are just ones that I took of my cousin, the fourth is of a schoolyard near my house, while the last 2 I got him to hold the camera and described how I wanted the picture framed and took the role of subject myself. Please let me know what you think and how I might improve my pictures if needed. I shot all the pictures with the camera set on ISO100 to try and get the clearest shots I could, but without a tripod there was only so much I could do. I used Photoshop CS2 v9.02 to edit. I appologize if this does not deserve it's own thread and I will gladly have it locked and transfer my post to the appropriate place if desired. Thanks for any input.
All pictures are thumbnails to the fullsize, as well as all pictures were edited by myself.
Again, thanks for looking as well as any comments. I only wish I had a DigitalSLR already, I'm not happy with the quality of some of the pictures.
