Default Wife is really getting into photograph. Thoughts please guys

Well as the title says the wife has really been getting into photography,

Bought her some fancy bits of gear to take some pics.

Ill share of the more recent pictures and please share your thoughts guys, All feedback would be great.

Handbrake is wanting to do more shoots for people and more family shots.

She has decided to call her self Yours, Mine and Ours photography. This is a combined family name we call our hours lol. We have kids to x-partners and we have kids together so it is very fitting.

Photography is a great hobby and a collection of life's experiences. These shots are a good start, but like most hobbies and sports, you've got to keep at it to improve, get experience, and lots of enjoyment. The best advice I can give her is to take her camera everywhere with her. Shoot lots of images of everything, and experiment. Soon, using the camera with become "second nature", and her pictures will get better with ever shot. Enjoy.

Thanks bazza boy,

Yeah she takes the camera every were and is always clicking away. She has always loved taking photos but only recently have i bought her a camera that was worthy of sharing the pics.

She wanted to try some different shots in different light so we took the 4wd out and here is what she come up with.

I'm not photographer, but I find photography one of those personal taste things.

I think your wife has a good eye for context, but maybe ups the contrast a touch too much for my liking in post processing. But as said, each to their own they still look great.

What camera and lens is she using? I found moving away from the kit lens I got with my camera was surprisingly good for image quality and style. I like my Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6 on my KS2 for most my outdoor stuff.

I think this one's my favourite

Goes too hard PP for me too.

Personal taste but the hard HDR won't appeal to most. Less is more. Classes etc are a great place to start 😊

She sounds like she's exactly where I'm at with photography too. I've only got into it. I have a similar spec camera as her with a few lenses and just started dabbling with Lightroom for editing.

I have no idea what PP is or HDR.

Apparently she is trying raw settings and is playing with IOS and shutterspeed and some other things,

She has been dabbling in photoshop as well to tidy up images, lol

Will just keep adding pics here as she takes them so you can see the progress in her skill set.

Means i get to go out in the 4wd and say it was for her benifit hahahahaha

PP = Post processing

HDR - High dynamic range, this can look excellent when done properly it consists of multiple shots merged, like an under exposed shot, correct exposed and a over exposed shot. They are merged into one another and this creates a image which gives detail and light to the areas on a photo which are usually dark shadows. some people tend to go to happy on the clarity slider which gives it a chromy looking image.

Your wife is on the rite track, some nice shots, just keep shooting and get fond of using manual settings. its always better to over expose than under expose as its gives a better image to reduce exposure in LR than increase exposure. if she gets onto Flickr she can view other peoples photos that use that same camera and can see the settings that they use to get the base image.

RAW is the only way to shoot, then edit. you have to spend twice the amount of time practicing editing to photography.
Buy her a subscription to this site. so many how to videos. you just sit down and copy what they do until it starts to sink in. https://kelbyone.com

Personally, i think some of you are really missing the point just a bit, does wife want to improve her "Photography skills" or her "computer editing skills" ?


I understand the need for PC's and benefits in altering some images etc, but instead of trying to figure out the best way to fix a photo your not happy with in Photoshop (and the like), how about working on the skills she has to take a photograph that you don't have to change with PC software, and yet still be happy with it ?



Bin the PC (for now), learn how to get the most from the camera first, you can still make creative subtle changes in the camera settings (contrast, saturation etc, etc), try working on improving the basics, things like framing, composition and rule of thirds, work at getting a really good photo in the first place.


BTW ,I don't much like the logo, its way too big and draws my attention away from the pic itself.


Just to be clear, I do like the pics, they are almost awesome, but whats needed to make them even better, is NOT a improvement in "PC skills" IMO
