"Love the colours and shiny red candy coating looks very yummy indeed:)  I would crop the top more, down to the tray so the focus is stronger; really like the background of goodies and the reflection that enhances your image beautifully!"

  Hi Tammy,

In my opinion the best thing you can do to get better is 1. take lots of photos. 2. closely inspect your photos, do they say or express anything. If not then it's just a picture. AS you edit your pictures you will start to see what works and what doesn't. AS you go through them you will start to develope an eye for taking great photographs. It doesn't happen over night so be patient. 3. do not rely on photoshop or any editing software to make your photos better. Post production software is meant to make great photos better, not bad photos into good ones. 4. stop using automatic settings, stick to apperture priority or shutter speed priority. Once you get the hang of those two move to full manuel. This will increase the speed of you learning the mechanics of the camera and taking difficult shots. 5. read a lot of info specific to your camera and photography in general. Books are good for mechanics and composition. 6. Cameras are only as good as your skill level. Don't run out a buy the latest and best camera. I see so many people with awesome cameras that have no clue how to use them properly or to their full potential. The last thing you want to do is feel stupid when someone comes up to you with the same camera and you're like ughhhhh? Master what you have then step up as your skills get better. 7. Be very picky. Don't settle for ok photos. Just keep snapping! You have some really nice photos but some are just pictures of your kids. Hope this helps you.
