- Date taken:
- Flame Lilly Port Alfred South Africa
- Was doing a beach photo shoot and one of my models got a fright because the tide came in , we had to wade out in the water to fetch her! I just love that expression on her face
Ill have a look at my camera now, but as far as I know there's no AV mode and only 2 choices on the F value , I'm saving up for a nikon D900 hopefully ill have more success with that camera :) thanx for the advice tho :)16 June 2012
no worries :) isn't there an Av mode on the top dial with the Finpix? if so, select Av mode and try using the lowest F values you can select, when shooting portraits. it will decrease your depth of field, hence model stays in focus, but background becomes softHelpful 1 16 June 2012

Kanonkop, thank you for your helpful advice, I have been cutting down on the editing unfortunately with the camera I'm using there isn't very many settings and the focus does not blur the background unless I'm doing macro shots, I'm using a fujifilm finepix S2950, but I still really appreciate your advice, mblum4 thank you for the compliments :)15 June 2012
looks like you were all having lekker fun!! good capture.14 June 2012
I'm assuming that the same editting was applied to the rest of the shoot. if so, i would say its a bit saturated for me. the model should stand out the most, but in this pic, the colour on the rock is so strong that it attracts most of my attention. likewise, you could use a large aperture to blur out the background to make the model more prominent.
have a relook at your WB, it could be a tad bit on the warm side (check out the yellow tones on her skin). though decreasing the saturation would also reduce that..
