Colours are fair enough. Could have done better with polo and a leisure-jacket. Something like this.

Light is not so good this morning with all this rain...

Bienlui: All your photos look so dark and gloomy. Use the fastest lens you can get (lowest f-stop rating) and open it out to max. Bump up your ISO. Also, try zooming and cropping, such that the images better approximate what a nearby observer would see with their "naked eye".

 

Do this and your photography will be of similar quality to your outfits!

This is it. I bought the Nikon D7100 with a kit lens 18 - 105 mm. I was pretty disappointed with the photos I was getting with my kit lens. Still noticed the lens does not pick up the slightest detail of my outfit. I visited plenty of photography sites to get an idea of which size lens I should get and the 50mm seemed to be the one I wanted for the type of photos I wanted to take. I had to purchase an alternative lens the 'Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Lens'.

Kaboum, does the trick. Straight away I was getting the kind of results that I had been hoping for with the kit lens. Works well in low light, is sharp with little distortion and sits well on the D7100. A good purchase for general photography use. It's hard to describe what is so much better - clarity and sharpness is one thing - but the photos are just way above anything I was taking before. Landscape shooting, wild, holidays is just amazing. For once, I stopped shooting on Automatic and started using manual setup and this has made so much of a difference in the way the photos come out. Just need to take an extra course to handle that camera. It's got so much of an amazing features that I need to discover.

@coxsackie, when you say bump up the ISO, is it for shooting raw or simply for sharpness and clarity?

I'd bet that kit zoom has a max aperture of 3.5/5.6. In full zoom the widest appetite possible would be f5.6. In lower light conditions to get a proper exposure the shutter speed might have gotten slow enough to introduce a bit of blurring. Not much but it wouldn't have seemed as sharp.

By using a fixed focal length lens with a maximum appetite of 1.8, you're getting a stop and a half "faster" lens. At any given exposure you are able to shoot at a faster shutter speed. Thus a reduction of blurring.

The fixed length lens may also simply have better "glass." All other things being equal, a zoom should cost more than a fixed length lens with comparable maximum aperture. Most zoom lens sold with a body as part of a kit are versitile but not always of the greatest quality. "Jack of all trades, master of none," etc.

Nice casual combination; I'd slim the pants down if possible.

Jacket and pants are too close in color. Not crazy about the look.
Also agree with Coxsackie's post re photographing your looks.

Will try to take other pictures this evening. The color are defenetely not the same, since the jacket is beige and the trousers are rust (but the pictures are really not good).
