    Question HELP - Ugly pics @ Asian Civil Museum

    Hey guys, what could I have done to make my pics better.

    I was using ISO 400, would making it 50 or 100 be better?

    I was using Aperture Pirority Mode on my Canon G5.

    #1 f/ 4.0



    #2 f/ 3.2



    #3 f/ 3.2

    You should definitely stick to the lowest ISO for your G5.

    its a hard scene to take, so messy. stick to iso50 or most 100. try another angle, closer to the subject, or from the subjects front.

    the green plant on the cornered right should be ommitted from your framing

    i feel that the lighting is flat. Lots of white background does not help. You could have underexposed more.

    What ISO to use will depend on the lighting condition. If you're using Av mode, adjusting the aperture size will not change the amount of exposure received by the CCD since the shutter speed will be adjusted accordingly also.

    If your concern here is to do with under-exposure or over-exposure, here's a very good website that is a panacea for understanding exposure.

    There is a section that teaches you how to get good exposure reading on your G3/G5 too.

    Shoot more and have fun shooting.

    wat time u take the pic? if in the afternoon the sun is directly above ur head and will get harsh lighting... try early or late in the day... might soften up the hrash shadows...
    The equipment can only bring you so far - the rest of the photographic journey is done by you.

    i guess what i feel ugly is the bright pictures for # 2 & 3... wanna find out why they turned so bright/white... i know composition is abit off, but more concerned about the colour for these few pics

    Nope, no point.

    The website has enough details to give you a good start, the rest you can pick up on your own through trial and error.
