Did you blur the background in PS?
You did well in using the fill-flash here (which I think you did, the photo is a bit tiny to really see).
no i have n idea how to blur in photoshop when i try it looks choppy. this is just the photograph. i use a nikon d40. nothing too fancy, its mostly for taking better then average pictures of my kids lol
Depth of field looks fine. Using a faster lens and/or a longer lens will really blur out that background though as it still looks a little busy.
to be honest....it looks like the child was pasted onto the background in this case...
blessed: i wouldnt even begin to know how to do that lol.
EOS- thanks, i just have a standard lens now, so that may be why im having a hard time with DOF
oh no. wasn't suggesting that's what you did. just saying it looks like that.
did u sharpen it a lot during PP? if you did..it mightve been a lil too much
this photo i didnt. i did learn how to use unsharp mask yeterday though but this pic i didnt do much editing too. oh, and i agree with you that it looks that way. actually though that is something I would like to learn how to do! is there a way I can tone it down?
THe reason he looks pasted is probably because of the use of flash. I don't think it looks bad though.
i'm a newbie so i'm in learning mode myself but...
hmm...maybe you can show a bit more in the foreground next time.
i'm thinking because you have your child up front and nothing else..... only the background which is far off...
it's like 2 distinct distances with nothing in between at all.
what i just wrote may be completely wrong but ah i dont know...hopefully someone more knowledgeable will comment soon.
i think EOS is right..
yes i had my flash on. i asked my dh if i should turn it off and he said for right now when im outside its okay to use it, and he will teach me more when I start to get better. i think he is just to lazy to teach me anyhting lol
