Newbie here. While on the process of learning and familiarizing the controls and functions of my DSLR, my daughter extended her arm out the window trying to reach the raindrops. I was almost tempted to shoot to Auto mode not wanting to miss this moment, fortunately she enjoyed what she was doing so i was able to experiment more on the manual settings.
1.in what area is critique to be sought?
I have composed the picture this way because I want to show my child's eagerness to play in the rain but unfortunately, as a parent, I don't want to let her play under the rain.
I will like feedback on photography techniques.
The following is the camera settings used to photograph this picture.
Shutter priority 1/125 s
I have chosen this shutter speed/exposure compensation because I want
to freeze my daughter's playful hand and the falling rain in the background.
2.under what circumstance is the picture taken
I took this picture when my daughter started to enjoy feeling the raindrops even if it is through the window only. Contrary to my younger days where I go out and freely enjoy the rain.
