    yes im back with more questions lol...my cousin needs me to take a few pics of her(for what i dont know)...but its going to be at a nice university...so i want to get her in the pictures as well as the backgound. I was thinking AV mode but im not sure what aperture size to use. any suggestions?


    ok now the photos...i think i should've used the tv mode now that i look at it...alot of the pictures came out under exposed...sunny days and dark shadows sucks back..i tried using the fill flash, but then they were over exposed...i have more on my flickr page

    The larger the F number the more Depth of Field (Background and foreground more in focus)

    The larger the F number the smaller the opening

    Like prodigy said, use a large F number (small aperture) to have more DOF. Just remember, the smaller the aperture, the longer the shutter speed, so you may need a tripod, depending on the lighting.

    Well, going through ur pictures here and on flickr, the problem is not in exposure or Aperture... its the composition.

    If you accept criticism here`s some :)

    1. Your subject`s face is always in the center of the photo. (Remember the rule of 3rds)

    2. Dont be afraid of closeups, portrait like

    3.The white path behind her would have been nice if it would have been unveiled completely and to the left or right, to suggest linearity...just a suggestion

    4. much nicer if she would have leaned to the right wall, in the profile with the camera closer to the wall with a shallow dof.

    5. Her hands are not used at all, they dont express anything interesting. They are just there, no clear purpose in the pic :)

    and i can think of more :)

    As for the exposure, they are quite nice !

    I don't believe his numbers are in reference to your photo numbers. I believe he was just numbering his C&C comments. ;)

    This statement's all over the place - go toward f/22 and you'll get more and more in focus, and the opening will get smaller. Head back toward f/2.8, or 4, or whatever, and less and less will be in focus outside of the actual focus area, and the opening gets larger.

    Some nice images, but I don't like the angled views ...
