Hello everyone, the following photos were taken with available light only. I'm[
learning to use my Canon 10D. Equipment: Canon 10D, 28 - 105 lens, one shot on cloudy (1st) the other on shade (2nd). Please let me know what I could have done to improve the photos. Could you also tell me how to properly post an image here so that the pixels are clear?

Fredrick, I sent an email today to the webmaster requesting assistance with the photos. One minute they were there, the next, gone. I can't even repost without doing a new thread.

They are a bit small so you can't judge by detail. I think they are okay as basic portraits, although I think with this subject, they would come out better with a smile. One thing to watch is small details. For example the necklace is not well positioned in the second photo, but just fine in the first. I would tend to want more depth of field to throw the background even further out of focus since it is a bit distracting. The second photo seems to have the model leaning a bit to the left which adds a certain unbalance to the shot. The whites look better in the first photo, so I'm not sure about your expousre on the second shot.

Here is a shot of Candace to illustrate one way of using the DOF to blow out the distracting background.



Cheers,
rfs

Frederick, do you think that the white in the second photo was a bit off because I used the shade mode? Should I have opened up a half stop or so? Also, I agree that the background should have been a bit more out of focus.

I believe you are saying that you shot the first with the color balance set to cloudy and the second with it set to shade. That usually would not make a difference in the exposure. Its my guess that the white of the blouse just fooled the meter. Did you use the evaluative, center, or partial method for metering. That can influence the exposure. With digital its just like shooting with slide film, you don't have much exposure latitude.

Cheers,
rfs

I used a Minolta Auto Meter 4F for the exposure but, I did have the camera set for cloudy then switched to shade.
