• Pictures from AIT
    16 replies, posted
So I got back from AIT (advanced individual training) a few weeks ago, AIT is your job training for the US army, which takes place after basic training. Anyways, I took quite a few pictures, since my dad brought me a new Canon T2i as a graduation "gift" (It was purchased with my money from training). Most of the pictures I took were just random objects I or my roommates had lying around, but some are my favorite photos of all, candid shots. I really hope to receive constructive criticism for these, I really wish to get better at this. Also, please note, all photographs here are untouched after the shutter closed, meaning I haven't done any editing to any of these photos.

I really like number 4 and 13. Like you said, most of these pictures are of random objects and so aren't very exciting or interesting. Having people in your shots help make it interesting. I think a series of photos like number 13 would be quite nice. Also, congrats on your certificate!
dey ait
I dunno if i'm the only one, but I really dig the one of the padlock. It's clean, simple and nicely composed imo
13 takes the cake.
A log of them are just black and white shots of random stuff but I love these two [img_thumb]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7093/7347378524_c062e7c066_c.jpg[/img_thumb][img_thumb]http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8001/7347391996_9638ec4cca_c.jpg[/img_thumb]
Thank you, and I tried getting more like 13, but I never had time to take pictures while others were getting ready, since I had to as well. If I could find some way to be a photographer for my unit or something... [editline]7th June 2012[/editline] Also, on the b&w, I kinda went nuts with it because I find it a lot easier to compose when I don't have to worry if the colors complement the image.
I dunno, I don't like the 13th one, or I like the other ones with people in them much more. The padlock one is amazing, though. "1413, Basic Military Photojournalism. You've gotta be shittin' me, WastedJamacan, you're not a photog, you're a killer!"

The padlock shot is indeed one of the best shots, I'm still trying to figure out why. Like Inzalonus said, it's clean, simple and well-composed. The B&W also perfectly adds to it.

And with good shutter speeds, you'll be watching the bullets fly
[QUOTE=Raygen;36264193]And with good shutter speeds, you'll be watching the bullets fly[/QUOTE] Plus the muzzle flash would act as a flash, so I won't have to worry about under-exposure
[QUOTE=WastedJamacan;36264555]Plus the muzzle flash would act as a flash, so I won't have to worry about under-exposure[/QUOTE] Nope. Ever seen a muzzle flash that lights up everything withing 15 meters?
I was more thinking about how interesting it would be to see pictures of people being shot the exact moment they are, from the gun's point of view.
I volunteer latin geek to model.
