The subject in your photo is underexposed.Read the following PDF to get an idea of how exposure works and essentially how to use spot metering to get good exposure - http://backroom.rend...metering%20.pdf


Thats a great read Andre thanks for that!

Unable to reedit. However I've played around with still life photography to get a bit of practice and this seems to be the best shot I've got.

Hooked

Is there anything you would improve? I don't mean the composition or subject I mean aperture and shutter speed?


I would say that you need to up the exposure on it, since it's under-exposed, and also reduce the aperture so that the background behind the subject is less focused. Otherwise the composition is great.

I was going to say exactly what Chasethebase said.

Also, a few people have been saying they keep the camera at ISO 100 or "as low as it will go" whenever they can.

I disagree. With todays SLRs I PERSONALLY believe that is not needed. I never bring my camera below 200 unless I NEED to (to make my shutter speed slower) that being said I try not to go above 400, again, unless needed.
I think if you have the mentality to keep it as low as possible you tend to forget about it, or if lighting changes quickly and you need to grab a fast shot your shutter speed will just be too slow (at 100) whereas you have a little extra "headroom" at ISO 200-400 and lighting drops and you need to take a quick shot

To add to the above, if I am doing CONTROLLED work, and I know what the lighting will be then sure, I will put the ISO as low as possible.
