"My Notebook"

By Tarachand
Here in this Pic a Kid is sitting on a wall and behind there is high sun light so here this is a risky opportunity for me to shoot but luckily it is a good one click.

A nice family picture but technically the lighting us so against you. The background us very bright and the child in shadow and a littkecsoft in resolution.

You are using a compact, so control may be limited, but better to expose more for the highlights if the background, then switch on the flash to illuminate the child.

Very cute indeed. You knew this was a risk with the bright light behind, so if you are in the same position again, turn on the flash, use the forced on mode, not the auto mode. It wont fire in auto, only when you select the ON mode.

I have uploaded a mod that shows how it can look with the flash on.

Buts its very cute anyway,

Definitely a cute shot - one ofr hte album!

Looking at the spec of your camera, it allows you to record RAW images - dong this, and doing careful processing, will help reduce the problems with an overbright background.

My main concern is that it's not terribly sharp - apart from the keyboard. I imagine you could increase the ISO setting - this would allow you to use a smaller aperture, and get more of the subject sharp. Working at full aperture as you were, the quality can be limited by depth of field (how much is sharp, front to back), and inherent lens quality.

When he grows up, he'll look at this and wonder how a computer can be so big, and so primitive...
