I really like the subject matter of 1 and 2. The light coming from the left on 1 is somewhat distracting, and the contrast could be raised a little. 2 is great, but it's extremely grainy; try using a tripod and a lower shutter speed to keep your ISO down under 800. The lighting in 3 is a little strange, but it's a nice shot regardless; it would probably look good with someone in it too if you're into that. 4 is great-well composed, and I love the shape of the tunnel that you can see by looking at the support. The light gives it a sort of subject and falls on the walls in an interesting way. 5 is also very grainy, but I don't know enough about star photography to give you any useful advice. I'm not a huge fan of the super wide angle look of 6, but that's a matter of taste. How exactly did you illuminate the subject there?

Thanks for the feedback! Number 6 was done by tracing around myself with a little red light.

Even when unnecessary, it just looks cool.

What do you mean? Did you hold a red penlight and wave it around in the shape of your body during a long exposure shot, or did you wrap yourself in a string of red lights? Or did you use some other method?

I don't mean to interrogate you, it's just that you've piqued my curiosity with that unique photo.




I was born too late to explore the world, but too early to explore the stars. So instead I'll explore the city, and see what I can see.

So did you trace around your body with the light like you would trace yourself with a marker laying on paper, or did you just draw a shape that looked like your body?

These are pretty awesome shots. I especially like the milky way shot. What Kind of camera/ lens are you using?

Cheers! I use a Sony a35, most of the shots are taken with a Tamron 18-200mm, but the really wide angle ones are a Rokinon fisheye de-fished in Lightroom.

You should get a prime or two! You could play around with some old mf ones before committing to buying a more expensive one.

Yeah I have a 50mm and I love it! I mainly just use it for "normal" photography though, and abandoned houses.





I am thinking about buying a prime 10mm, but I don't know if I can justify it...

Yeah, everyone needs a "nifty fifty". I've never really been into super wide angle though. I think at that range it's better to get a zoom, like a 10-24 or something, since you don't really need to worry too much about max aperture when it's that wide.

Solid pics but so much sensor and sharpening noise, try lower ISO and longer exposure. Watch out for over-processing too.
