Nice catchlights and so cute, but I agree, they're a bit under.

Quoting Mrs.Dani:" Yeah and I am a really shy person so I have trouble directing. I feel kind of awkward. :oops:"

Honestly, that is one of the harder parts of photography. Overall, it is easy to learn the technical aspects, and it's much harder to learn the aspects of dealing with the people themselves. Both on a posing and personality level. And the business part is the hardest of all.

Ok first thing learned. I can set white balance woot!
Second thing. I can only set aperture at 3.1 or 6.4. It will however change to a larger number as I zoom, but will not go smaller.
This means....I need to get closer to object to achieve that bokeh (teehee look I used a real term)? :lol:

Good job :) Yes, to acheive bokeh with that aperture, get as close to your object as you can but keep your object as far away from where you want the bokeh if that makes sense.

I really like the first one being that it's a cell phone picture :) I can't wait until you get a camera so we can watch you grow & learn. Welcome to the thread.
