Haha here's a pic from at least 7 years ago... Shot with a 3mp Sony Cybershot.
It's actually 3 photos merged together in Photoshop.



I don't know what was going through my mind when I took this. I was obviously too absorbed in getting the sunset reflection that I completely missed the giant RV or chain link fence in the background.

You just have to pay attention to your surroundings and understand how to make them work for you and not against you. It's really basic stuff.

I took this with my phone and I can say with confidence it's a much more dynamic photograph than anything you've posted so far.



You just have to learn to understand what you see through the viewfinder and make something of it.

Here's an interesting video for those of us using zoom lenses. It's about not being lazy and moving as well as zooming to get the photo you're after.

Some of the more seasoned folks probably already know this stuff, but it's a neat exercise for beginners.

Everytime I use the flash, the cat blinks so all my pics of him his eyes are closed lol. But when I get into editing I'll see what I can do to fixthis pic :)

Haha yeah my first macbook was while I was in school and I got the "discount" too lol. I can't really afford a new computer atm, I don't really need one either, I'm hoping I can just upgrade my current macbook *fingers crossed*
