My First Post

Well there are a few flowers still hanging on out there, well at least in my neighbor's flower pot. Just though i would post something simple for my first post. I took this photo with Fujifilm Finepix S1500. Any feedback on the photo would be greatly appreciated.


  1. Welcome to AARP NIKON photography club! LOL.
    I have a Finepix HS10 myself, and it's very good camera for travel. Since, you are asking the feedback on your photo, these are my honest cretique about your photo. I'm still learning about the photography, and always make mistake on every events. Therefore, we all learning from each other in this blog.

    In the past experience when I shoot flowers or any single objects that I want to standout from the background, I always use spot metering, and large apperture setting such as f/2.8.

    The flower it seems to me over expose, and too much distractions on the surrounding. This is an easy fix on the location, by changing the angle of your camera. I think if you lower the camera, you could capture the center of the flower, and eliminated the flower on the top left, and the pot.

    I do understand that the point and shoot camera can't produce the same quality like a DSLR camera. But, if you can apply the rule of 1/3, and if you can make your main object pop out from the piture, that's a work of art.

    Happy shooting Aron.

  4. AARP Nikon Photography Club?? I resemble that remark!

    OK son, here we go! LOL The photo is a little over saturated. My camera does the same thing with this color for some reason. You may not be able to dial your saturation back on that camera but you might look at changing the shooting style on the camera and see if that will change the saturation.

    It's a good start though!
