I just started getting involved with photography and I already love it. I have a website for my photography (http://theeminent.tumblr.com/) please visit it and give me advice/constructive criticism on what I need to improve on. I shoot with a Nikon D3000 and I use the 18-55 VR lens kit that it came with and I also bought a fisheye attachment lens. I plan on upgrading my camera but not anytime soon, I want to get 100% comfortable with everything before I upgrade.

Simple
You look like you know what you're doing, it looks pretty casual my only advice to you would be to be careful with that fisheye attachment because on nikons the autofocus is on the lens itself (at least for the d3000) and if you have extra weight on it like the attachment you could break your whole lens. And to be honest you don't really need to upgrade your camera you really just need to upgrade your lens because more megapixels DOES NOT mean better camera it just means you can print bigger which is most of the time irrelevant. I would reccomend getting a Nikkor 35mm f1.8 prime because its reasonably priced and shoots well. Happy shooting!

Yeah I know what you mean by auto focus on the lens, and thanks. I'll look into the Nikkor 35mm f1.8 prime lens as well, I appreciate the feedback.

In my opinion, they just look like a bunch of snapshots. No real thought process went into making it and there's lack of composition. Just shoot some more and get a 35 or 50mm f/1.8 for starters.

Thanks for the feedback, and they're definitely snapshots. I'll start actually putting some thought into it the next time I shoot.

I'll think about it. I just started this photography thing a couple of weeks ago so I'm still kinda teaching myself but I'll keep that in my head.

you're kind of cheating. some of your photography is tight, but not because the picture is cool, just because the grafitti you are taking a picture of is cool. basically, your body of work is hard to critique.
