I have cropped some of the backgrounds out of these photos as they were distracting

  1. Hi Deb
    Did you shoot these in Aperture Priority or Portrait mode? The backgrounds are still pretty sharp so I’d be interested to know your settings. I’d love to see a bit more blur on the backgrounds to make your little man really stand out. The first one looks like a really high ISO because there’s lots of digital noise.
    But as usual you have captured great moments and great expressions. He’s just too cute!

  2. I have tried all of the settings on my camera I can’t change the aperture settings. I’ve been using the portrait setting.

    • OK, that’s the best you’ll be able to do with your camera then unless you try getting closer to your subject and having your subject further away from the background. That might help get a nicer shallow depth of field.

  3. I adore his rolls and chub!! SO cute!!

    • I’m sorry, I meant “her” rolls. Sorry! (you do have 2 girls right?)
