    Default CC please

    Still unedited, SOOC - could you tell me if you'd use different settings on these shots?

    Shot at 6, 2.8 (am I writing that right?)





    All I've done to these is crop them.

    Thank you

    usually it is written something like ISO ###, f/2.8, SS 1/125 for example I'm not sure what the 6 is up there. Exposure looks ok to me. A bit on the cool side though. Love the second shot!

    Hey you!

    Lyric is crying, so this is quick...

    The light in the first one looks like it's coming in from the left of the shot, but if you'd have put Roman facing the light source his eyes would have been brighter.

    Loving the teddy bear pic!

    Thank you I haven't worked out where the ISO info is (I am a bit thick!) but the 6 is the SS and the 2.8 is the F.

    The light is the early evening light through the window and I didn't even think of having him the other way around - that makes way more sense really doesn't it! I'll have another go later today if it brightens up any!

    Hmmm....I doubt your shutter speed was 6--that would mean your shutter was open for 6 seconds--you'd have quite a bit of motion blur not to mention a very overexposed pic! I'm guessing your shutter speed was 60? That would explain why you have some blur--with kids and babies, it's best to keep your shutter speed at 125 or higher. This allows you to freeze motion as easily as possible. In order to do that, you would just need to open your aperture more, which is more pleasing for portraits anyway. With an aperture of f/4, you allow the focus to stay only on the subject, and the background becomes more blurred. I hope that makes sense!

    You did a good job getting the exposure pretty good though! And I agree with Sarah about the lighting. You're doing great getting out there and practicing!!

    Thank you all - I can't work out how to write what settings I've used, I don't know what the ISO is or how to adjust it (yet) - I didn't get a manual with the camera so I'm trying to work it out by myself by reading things on here and clearly need to do a lot more reading!

    I tried to get some more shots of Roman today and again they came out really blurry (even when I stuck it into auto to see what settings the camera chose) and I just think because the evening is the only chance I've had to practice so far it's that the light is too bad to work in a decent setting so I'll try and get some better light tomorrow to practice in, and work out what all my numbers are!

    Thank you all - I hope I'm not boring you with my very amature shooting! You're very patient

    The fuji s602z; when I switch it on I'm not sure what numbers are what - in the top right of the screen it says 6MF0023 and along the bottom it has 1" F2.8 - the 1" is shutter speed and the f2.8 is the apperture right? When I change the settings the 1" then goes to 1.3, 1.6, 2, 2.5 then loads more right up to 10,000 - how would I write it so that it's correct?

    The F number goes from 2.8 to 11.

    it's usually very important to read your cameras manual first so that you get to know your camera more i went online and looked for one for you. Hope it helps! Hope its the right one too.
