Photography Question 
Adrienne Maldini
 

I am a young photographer


Hi my name is Adrienne. I am 16 years old. I was wondering if there where people about my age. If you are older than this and reading this I was wondering if you could give me some advice. I could use all the advice I can get. I dont want to become a profesonal but the job I want to do does Require a little bit of taking pictures when collecting evidence.
Thanks
Adrienne

  First you have to decide what kind of camera you want to purchase

doug Nelson   Some people learning photography have found my site useful. First of all, look at photographs (not necessarily mine). Start with the greats, found in photography books. The principles of exposure and composition are essentially the same, whether you shoot film or digital.

  You have been a member for 2 years and you are just now asking that question? If you want us to check out your gallery why don't you just say so.

Adrienne Maldini   Why do you think I just want to you to check out ym Gallery. I didnt even know about this question thing until the other day ok. Sure I would like you to look at my gallery, but the main reason why I ask was because I actually wanted the advice and by the way you said I need to figure what camera I wanted I did I have a Nikon D50 SLR.

  My bad, you dont need any help with what you are doing, your pictures are better than most here. Thats why I thought it was a sly move.

  First Adrienne, Erin Johnson is actually somebody who keeps changing names and creating new accounts. You know, every message board has one.
Sounds like you're inspired by CSI. If that's the case you really don't have to worry about anything, especially now. You won't even have to buy your own camera. It's all the forensic science classes, criminal justice probably, and bio chemistry stuff mixed in.
You may not even be required for any photo classes. Only some elective requirements in college. And then you can take a photo class because it'll be more fun than sociology.

Adrienne Maldini   Well I was acually thinking of sociolgy and minoring in criminal justice but I posted this because I am 16, and Photography is a hobby and I just want to improve my pictures.

Adrienne Maldini   Oh and I wasnt really inspired by CSI, because I started watching other missing person and murder shows before I started watching CSI and I know what I want to do CSI is nothing like it. CSI's dont even solve the cases the homicide detectives do and the Homicide Detectives in the show dont do anything. So the real thing is absolutly nothing I watch the real stuff and the real shows show the stuff that they actually do. But when you are there in person it is a totally different expernece.

  That is the second time you metioned your age. You know by law you have to wait until you're 18 to be really good at pictures. If you are mexican that doesn't apply.
