I am very new to this photography hobby, got my first serious camera 2 weeks ago - Canon EOS Digital Rebel xSi. I have a photo book now, can't stop reading and already took about 500 shots just practicing in camera control and stuff like that.
I don't own any firearms but have a coworker that has tons and he agreed for me to come over and use his house and his toys.
I am no Biggy, but I can take a picture of a Kimber as well, no biggy!
So, which one is better? - color or BW? falling dominoes or standing ones. The idea behind the picture was to reflect a trigger action - something that once done - can not be undone and starts a process - just like shooting a gun. so, what do you think?
technical aspect - I used a borrowed Canon 50mm/f1.8 Mk I lens that turned out to be fucked up - the focus ring was broken, and I could not focus on anything closer than 1 meter, even using manual focus, even though the distance scale on a lens started at 0.8
initial idea was to have a wide open shot and freeze falling dominoes but because I could not focus close enough, it did not produce the expected "fuzzy background" effect so had to change the focus point to dominoes and have longer shutter speed to have more "motion"
Also I did not have any lights control except blinds in the window and black sweatshirts and black sofa for the background.
