[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today I went alongwith my father to do some shoot. As the Tripod was broken I had to use my hand. The lens was heavy but still I managed to do this shoot.

I am really thankful to all for their support and guidance. Ofcourse this is only secondary and studies are my primary.

Framed in Photoshop. I learnt to do framing.

hi vignesh,
a good picture but its a bit soft in focus(the image is not sharp).
but a good try,

Your hands are supposed to be rock steady, Vignesh, young man!
You had a fine angle of exposure for this Skipper but the image turned out blurred because of the shake.
Keep trying and experimenting with camera settings. Don't be satisfied until you have a good picture in hand.
No ratings for this picture, okay?

Hi Vigi,
A nice try. But the subject is a bit soft. I want to give you a suggestion. Don't use the DSLR now because it is too heavy for your age along with the lens. Arrange a P&S of Nikon or Panasonic and take the captures. Soon within 6 to 7 months you will be ready to handle the DSLR easily. By the way how the tripod broke? Any thanks a lot for sharing.

Best wishes.
