My granddaughters first attempt at photography, literally her first shot with an DSLR so any critique would be valued as she wants to make photography her life's work
Fab image, a great journal & emotive shot! Keep it up.
A superb image, Lelah!
It's so good to see youngster's having a go at this 'photography lark'!
12 out of 10 for this shot!
Thanks to you both for your comments, they will really encourage her
To be sure of getting the full works, it is worth posting in the Critique Gallery - guaranteed the attention of several thoughtful people.
And maybe she will sign up as a junior member in her own right?
It's a fine shot, expressive and well-titled.
Exposure and focus are both sound, and monochrome works for the subject.
Ideally, have the whole foot in shot: just cutting off an edge can seem careless.
And the real learning will come when she switches from program mode and auto white balance...
This is a great start, and I look forward to seeing more of her work - either here on yoru pages, or in her own right.
Dudler I really appreciate the comments, and I know Ali will, she is so full of the desire to learn about photography it is lovely to see.
As John (dudler) says - she could join the site for free and upload one image a week to the Critique Gallery. And if she's under (I think... ) 18, she would get the support of Karen in the Junior Gallery too.
It's wonderful that she's keen and ambitious. If she's interested in human stories then that's right up my street and I would be happy to look out for her pictures!
My first advice would be - learn in gentle stages, don't try to run before you can walk, get to understand the camera's various functions and how to use them to get the picture that you want.
Here, three points: Move back, allow the subject some space - particularly under his feet;
Get down onto his level - this would be more effective if looking sideways not downwards;
And while b&w really suits photo journalism well, don't assume that a good colour image will convert automatically into perfect b&w. This needs a bit more contrast, b&w usually needs real black and real white which are lacking here. If she uploads to the Critique Gallery, modifications are automatically enabled and we can demonstrate how very simple adjustments can improve an image.
