    Hello forum. My name is Rob. I know nothing about photography.. except from what I have learned from reading this forum and from You Tube. I'm less than two weeks knowledgeable in photography. My knowledge on photography looks like a blank sheet of white paper. However, I have been reading this forum and watching photography related You Tube videos.

    I've learned a lot the past week from reading on this forum. One thing I had no idea about was the depth of field technique. I have a Kodak P&S camera.
    Below are basic photos from my backyard using my P&S camera. I was trying to achieve depth of field as best I could with the camera I use. Comments and edits are welcome. I'm hear to learn.

    I know a P&S does not offer much control over your photos. But...any suggestions or comments? Again, I was trying to achieve depth of field form I have learned the past week.

    FTFY? I'm unfamiliar with that term.

    They all seem a little OOF. The third one would've been better with a wider aperture and not so centered.

    Thanks for the comment. I was using a point and shoot. To my knowledge the apeture can't be adjusted.

    it can be by simply standing at different distances from the subject, which may not "adjust" aperture but will give different perspectives of depth of field. Play around a little you will see what i mean ;)

    Hello Rob and welcome to the forum.

    What is the model camera you are using?

    When the original post was made the [ img ] tags were a little messed up. I quoted the post with the corrected tags to display the image.

    Thanks! That's what I have been doing. I've been playing with the camera's ISO setting and shutter seed. On this particular camera the shutter speed is listed under LT.
