Default Help!!! Distorted photo.

Hi there guys. I'm new to digital photography. I brought a Fujifilm FinePix F410 lately. So there are couple of picture I snap on my trips with my friend. But some of the photo had a funny distortion on the background and some on the whole photo itself.

Please help!!..

Thanks in advance guys.

Here is the closes sample that I can get from the net. (The image I don't have any place that i can upload to. )

The distortion I facing now is a bit worst that what you will be seen on the wall back of the lady.

Sorry for the inconvidence.

Since the woman is not distored, the distortion is caused by depth of field. Go to www.shortcourses.com and you can learn more about DOF.

well the exif data says "ISO 200" that shouldn't be too high.
my cam starts producing noise at the maximum ISO (400), sometimes below, but I can't imagine that the distortion in this picture is only caused by the ISO.

I don't see any "distortion" - does someone want to give a clue about how the image is "distorted???"

I believe because the background is not as focused as the lady the poster considers that distortion.

wow, then that's just a misunderstanding of the basics of photography and lenses on the part of the poster.

For the background and foreground to all be in focus simultaneously requires a minimal infinity distance from lens to subject. That rarely happens unless one is shooting landscapes, and having the background out of focus while the subject is in focus is generally considered a "good thing" from the standpoint of photographing people.

I guess that's what confused me - I sure didn't see even significant perspective distortion in the image linked...

Thank you gibsonpd3620, Lin Evans and kex.

I snap the photo using ISO 400. I think that most likely the problem I try out with a lower ISO. Hopefully it will work out.

Will the colour setting ( aka FinePix Color) causing this. I think i using the Chrome setting (a colour mode with increased contrast and saturation).

Thanks again for your time guys.
