every kiss begins with kay


I had to go to church so I kinda panicked and just picked one of the decent photos I took of my mom's birthday present :P
Then i realized I had a better one that I should have used but im trying NOT to stay up too late :P the only thing im not happy with is that the white part is cut off and annoys me

anyways, i took all my pictures from this "shoot" in manual! yay. xD

no flash
Focal Length: 200mm (i had to get really far back D: but i wanted shallow dof)
Exposure: 1/80
Aperture: f/18
ISO: 1600


  1. Woohoo manual! If you shoot with a wider aperture, like f/8 or f/5.6, you can have shallower DOF, and you won't have to use iso 1600. Good photo nonetheless.

  2. well i dont know how to change the ISO...
    or even really what that is >_<

    buuut i was messing around with different apertures and shutter speeds and finally got it so the light didnt get all crazy out of control, lol. so i just left it alone x3

    but thanks for the suggestion, i'll have to try that later

  3. This is a really pretty picture.
    hehe I'm not quite sure what ISO is either except it helps make the picture brighter and also noisier( i think i spelled that wrong...)
    Question: How did you get the background to be black... did you have a black background?


  4. Ooohhhh, yeah ive had trouble with ISO before xD

    For my birthday my dad got me some backgrounds and a stand so i can do portraits and stuff :] so yeah I used a black background. Its actually a sheet xD Walmart has them really cheap :] Plus if you boost the contrast a little (i do it with curves in gimp) you cant even see the wrinkles :P since i havent gotten around to ironing them lol

  5. A great shot! That background is sweet!
