I just got a Fuji 5200 a week or two ago and went walking to today to take some pictures and ended up at my grandmother's house. She turned out to be my most interesting subject I don't generally take pictures of people so if you could take a look and tell me what you think...

Thats a great memory photo, Nova.....Just a bit over exposed though...Some hot spots on Gma's face...I dont know anything about your camera, so I couldnt recommend different settings...You could probably play with it in Photoshop and fix the exposer...
But anyway you look at it, you have a saveable memory...

Hi,

do not use the flash directly on face ,I feel bouncing the flash gives the more natural effect, Little soft effect is always welcome.well I edited it on PS and resending it to you

Hi Nova,

I feel picture is over exposed. I think you must have used the flash directly on her face.If that is the case, try to use the external falsh and bounce the flash.

If I had been in your place I would have soften the image a bit and lower the EV by 1/3.

well I have manipulated the image in PS and posting it back to you
sorry I posted it again

I found that the S5600 does tend to overexpose shots quite alot, Best of selecting a higher shutter speed and have the camera set to its aperture priority (A) and use the slow flash. Heres a picture i took of my girlfriend using a 1/300 Shutter speed with slow flash F 3.2 ISO 100.

Hi,

Thanks everyone for the comments, but I did not use the flash here. Next time I am doing a portrait I will in mind to either bracket it at 1/3 EV increments or go with a slow flash in A mode.

mcliu, thanks for the edits on grandma but the girlfriend is Redsquare's
