    Smile CC please ( with New Camera )

    Ok so I was able to play with the camera a little more and this is what I got..
    I was trying to get focus on the subject and blur out the background.. I think I got the hang of it but not quite

    i have a hard time adjusting the settings with out the flash
    when the shutter speed is 125 or higher it gets darker even when I up the ISO
    What am I missing .. I think the Aperture setting was f5.6 As i focus it It has this -2 next to it. Not sure what that mean .
    But here is the picture

    IT looks ok to me. His eyes look good. Of course the background is distracting, but that's not what you are looking at. I **THINK** the -2 means you are -2 clicks away from what the camera says is perfect exposure? MAYBE?! I always put mine about -2 clicks or so, but that's just me. The color seems a bit blue.

    Were you in a priority mode?

    You really should post the settings so we can help. This is very noisy so I have to assume your ISO was high.

    Exposure looks fine to me. Did you retouch this?

    Ya, I am thinking the noise is b/c of the ISO and I think she kept upping it to try to expose it correctly.

    With my S5, I got a LOT of noise at anything above ISO 200, so if your ISO was above that, you would want to lower it.

    The -2 means you are several stops away from a correct exposure. It goes in thirds, so that's about 6 stops away from proper exposure. If you decreased the aperture, then that would get you a bit closer (in this situation).

    It will get darker with a higher SS as that reduces the amount of time that light can hit the sensor, so a lower SS will increase brightness; but you don't want it any lower than the 1/125 you already had for a kid shot, so you are best off opening your aperture up (lower f-stop number). If it's still too dark, you may not have sufficient light in that setting to take a shot without flash.

    I was In manual Mode

    Yes it was ISO1600 cause when I increased the Shutter Speed it got darker.
    When I lowered the Shutter Speed It got lighter but it would not focus well

    OK that makes A lot of sense. My F-stop was 5.6 and SS was 1/250
    I was in my bed room and I was thinking maybe I didn't have Enough lighting coming through.
    I will do more practice shots.. But I really Appreciate the Feedback,

    Yes Exactly Cause with the SS @ 1/125 it kept getting darker. & the lower the SS it was Lighter.. & all this is what Im trying to understand.

    How open can your AP on your lens go? If you could open that up more it will let in more light allowing you to have your ss faster. + the open ap would distort or blur the background more for you.

    Nice exposure.
