here is a picture I took of DD on Monday.

F2.8 and a shutter speed of 1000

I had to use a flash b/c it was getting dark, and the little booger looked down right when the camera went off

so what do you think?

Oh and I agree, a subforum for critiques is a great idea

Very cute!

A shutter speed of 1000 is very high to use unless your in bright sunlight. If you had dropped the shutter speed to about 1/125 or something like that, you could have probably got correct exposure without having to use flash.
What was your ISO setting?
Just keep experimenting with your camera settings and in different light settings. Pretty soon it will come second nature, but it takes lots of practice. Just try to avoid the flash any time you possibly can. Otherwise, it looks like a plain snapshot.

Very cute overalls, BTW.

Sounds like Jamie did a great job on giving feedback...I'm not so hot at the technical part of it yet, I'm skeered!

The little girl is adorable though...I love her pigtails and overalls.

Up the ISO and lower the shutter speed. You can always get rid of the "noise" in photoshop.

I love those overalls, please keep practicing with her wearing those, she is a little doll!!

ETA...if you practice in daylight, but not in direct sunlight, you will get the best results, and I wouldn't go any lower than 1/125

ok here are some dumb questions.

What is ISO... by the way mine was 100.

What is noise?

so with shutter speed, it is better to make it higher in direct or a lot of sun light, and lower with darker lighting?

ISO Equivalency: A measure of the digicam’s sensitivity to light using
conventional film speeds as a yardstick. Most digicams have fixed ISO
(International Standards Organization) equivalents but others can be set to
sensitivities ranging from 80—640 to achieve adequate exposure under
different lighting conditions.


Taken from this site:
http://www.dpcorner.com/all_about/terms.shtml

That site will help you learn what all the Digital "jargon" means.

Yes, an ISO of 100 is where your problem was. Next time your in that light
situation, bump the ISO to 400 and the shutter speed down to 1/125 and see
what you get.

I'm not good at describing things, so I found this for you about digital
noise:

One of the major difference between a consumer digital camera and a
digital Single Lens Reflex (dSLR) is that the former produces images with a
lot of noise when using high ISOs and long exposure times, and the latter is
practically noise-free. Noise is apparent by the presence of color speckles
where there should be none. For example, instead of a blue sky, you notice
faint pink, purple and other color speckles amongst the otherwise blue
sky.


Some people call it "grain", also.

The higher your ISO setting, the more noise you will have in your photo.
It's best not to use higher ISO setting unless you have to, but it's better
than using direct flash and like a PP said, you can always take the noise
out in PS.
With a very high ISO, like 1600, you'll be able to get some of the noise
out, but probably not all of it.

Anyway...if you're confused about what all this means, just go online and
check out some digital photography sites. They can explain it a lot better
than I can....hehe

Keep practicing!
