trying to figure out this camera
here's a few shots.
The first two don't really do anything for me subject wise, but I like the last two. Your image quality is outstanding as well.
I think number 3 is amazing! The composition is perfect, and everything else I really like!
I think #3 is underexposed.
Nonsense! If it was any more 'exposed' the child's skin would be blown out and the detail would be lost. The only way to get this exposure better would be artificial lighting...and obviously, that was not the intention here.
Thanks for the comments!
I knew that three would be a little dark for some people, but I like it that way. That's my little sister. I'm sure she's gonna get tired of me using her as a model haha
I'm with DScience on 3 being properly exposed but it sorely needed some fill from camera right or the pop-up in manual mode at a low power setting to be really good. I'm not sure why it was ISO 400 but.......So, it is what it is, a snapshot.
Question..What would have been the correct ISO setting and why?
right, it may be properly exposed, but the focus is then on her arms, whereas it is generally recommended to attempt to make the face the focal point of an image.
The point of the picture was to show the childish destruction of the flowers. I had been telling her all day to quit picking all the flowers or the park would look ugly without them. So it was supposed to draw you into the flowers. Which she did pick every last one of them and then threw them at me :lmao:
Its mostly underexposed and the the subject is dead center, hardly the "perfect" composition wouldnt you say?
This forum seems to be more and more of just people trying to argue with other people. I've gone thru so many posts and seem to just see a bunch of arguments.. anyway... place her in the back corner of the picture in your mind and tell me how awkward that would look. If you don't like the picture great, but it seems some people on this forum base whether or not they like a picture on "rules". This seems silly to me.
