Your photography has to start with you. Try to please yourself with what you are doing, and then once you are comfortable with it, add in a new challenge or learn a new skill to keep it interesting.

I started street/people because I got bored of doing landscape, flower and butterfly; I find street/people photography because I find it challenging, interesting and rewarding to me.


I know many here are more talented but I have shown my photos to non-photographers and even to those people I've taken photo of, they liked it. I just had a look at my PF, I like the photos, no matter what others are saying. But, I'll continue to take constructive criticism until I stop taking photos.

I'll be putting up my gears for sale here soon.

Thanks,

Tony

Good advice above Tony. Practice. Photography is something thats learned. Read some photography books. The National Geographic Field Guide for Photographers is great. Limit yourself to one type of photography for a while until you get the technicalities right. Street is very difficult! Do some portraits. Understand what aperture does by trying one shot using many apertures. Dont give up. And pay attention to feedback with an OPEN mind, - we seriously try to help, and have a good long record with people who started knowing little, took advice, and went on to open their own businesses. Theres nothing quite like seeing a member inputting images to the CG, taking feedback, using it, coming back having understood the feedback and incorporating it, and simply taking off like a bird. Its why we volunteer.

I really appreciate your comments and feedbacks.

What do you think is wrong with my photos? This is a honest question and you may chose not to answer.

What do you think I must do?

I think you should stop trying cause trouble and upsetting people, read all the answers and advice that loads of people have given you. Try and understand and take heed of that advice. You have had a great deal of help and support offered over the last weeks. use it to improve your photography.
Most of all get on with photography and stop attention seeking. You sound like a spoiled child pretending you will sell your camera.

Who have I upsetted? I thought the whole idea of a forum is opened for discussion! Loads of people= same people not 1.6 million or even close. But, yes, I'll be good and take all the advice, you all mean well!

You have offended a fair number of people who have tried to give you advice in a helpful and encouraging way. Comments have been kind and positive even on your worst images, and some of your pictures are not too good to say the least.

Tony, i think one thing that would help is to perhaps have a look at some members here on ePz that either shoot similar subjects to you, or some members who's works you aspire to. Drop them a friendly and polite direct message asking them if they could perhaps give you advice, critique or some general pointers. The critique team are great, but perhaps some advice from someone who specialises in that area could be better?

Not everyone will reply, and not everyone will want to help, but there's plenty of very friendly and helpful members here so if you are lucky you might get some great advice or a 'mentor'.

Your chosen area of photography is a tough one. Not only in technique, but also because its not as popular as some other photographic styles. Personally i think its very hard to capture that sort of image and make it artistic and appealing, but then, i also have to admit that i have only seen a few images (of that style) that have really grabbed my interest no matter how good they are technically. Thats mostly down to personal taste though, and why i only very briefly experimented in that type of street photography.

Oh Tony, Tony, Tony - just read what I said. This is exactly the issue. I have provided feedback and advise, as have some others, as well as lots on the CG, and you respond, yet again, with "what should I do". It becomes a circular conversation very quickly, and people lose all interest. I have to assume you are serious only about playing games, and not photography... if you were interest in the slightest, you would take heed of at least some of what youve been told.


I dont play games. And this carry-on of yours is offensive to those who take their own time to help you.
