hype cog

I need constructive criticism.

So I've had an SLR for around three years now (mainly used for family shit and whatnot) and I just decided that I wanted to take up photography as a serious hobby. Here's my recent shots (olegdeleon.tumblr.com) any form of feedback would be awesome.

PS: I'm using a Nikon D40, 18-55mm lens and 55-200mm VR lens. My pop-up flash is fucked up for a while now. Been meaning to cash in on a good fisheye to shoot my homies skateboarding.

Thanks in advance

They look like random snap shots of a tattoo parlour with vintage tones.

Plus you have way too many pics. Make a blog with only your best stuff then maybe people will give u some help.

I like the pics, you could do with a quality filter, it seems you just post everything. I like the equipment shots better than the ones of tattoos in progress.

Also, just a thing that bugs me, but the vintage filter just looks like the sort of option I can select on my mobile phone. But i'm no expert in photography, I draw and paint. But keep doing what you are doing always good to have a passion for something.

What helped me was getting a flickr, and not upgrading to a pro account. This way I have limits on what I can upload, forcing me to choose wisely and only my best shots. Also if you took a shot you like but didn't come out great, you can always use an editing program (can also download the trial version of photobucket).

Also, having a variety in your photos would also help. Seeing the same type of photo over and over would be nice, try different filters, colors, etc.. Also walking around where you live can get you some nice photos.

even for snapshot-ish pics they still look good. wanna share your preset for the vintage look?

Don't get a fish eye, its garbage and it makes you look like a amateur. If you wanna get better technical you should get a good analogue small film (maybe a Nikon F3 or something). This forces you to be more involved with everything.

Some photos are okay but some are just typical looking. It seems like you post everything you took with the same vintage look. Not sure if I am really a fan.

Also, I don't know if you'll want a fisheye, overly distorted photos are hideous in the eyes of most people.

I would suggest a nice sharp prime like a 50 1.8 and it will go with your shooting style.

Theirs nothing wrong with a fish eye as long as you don't over do it. And I said 2011 because It seems most of the dumb shit ive read in forums are from 2011 members. No offence.
