thanks for reply and for your time ,here is answers for your questions :
How many shots did you take to get it?
absolutely i take a lot of shots with different setting as possible to understand what is the suitable setting for each environment but most of them become bad darker or lighter or blurred.
for example for 50 shots at the same environment or session only 3 or 4 become acceptable
#1 was taken on Av. If the 50 shots were all in Av, Tv, or P mode, the exposures should have been about the same IF you used the same framing for the shots.
There could be several reasons for the blurring.
These are reasons why I use Manual mode when there's time, & there usually is because I try to anticipate the coming situation, & if you had time to take 50 shots, you probably had the time, too.
See if you can make sense out of this: Need an exposure crutch?
And for when you ask "Why?": Post #47
Did you try exposure compensation? (EC)
no is that adjusting meter button marked with a “+/-” icon it makes photo looks brighter or darker and makes photo lost its natural color
That sounds about right, but I don't know your camera, so check your manual.
Did you try bouncing any fill light into his face?
1-if u mean a second light source by external flash the answer is no ,all i have is built in small flash
and that's difficult part for me it makes photo looks more lighter or darker some times u don't have time to measure the space between the camera and the object or to make change to the flash setting -/+ ,however i am planing to buy external flash but not sure if it can solve this.
Again, check your manual. Sometimes you can use the built in flash for fill, & if you can "make change to the flash setting -/+ ", then you're on the right track.
As for "measure the space between the camera and the object", take a look at this: Fill light at sunset
2-if u mean the main light source like sunlight yes but sometimes the object doesn't facing sunlight
and enforce u shot in possible skylight light i think i need buy foldable reflectors or bounce but its difficult to carry and hold especially when u r alone with kids.
I understand that it could be difficult, but you popped off 50 shots, so you had time to pull a folded 12" X 12" white cardboard out of your back pocket & use it to reflect some sunlight into his face? Or the other kid could have held an even bigger one?
As for, "sometimes the object doesn't facing sunlight", most of the time when they aren't doing that & squinting is much better. I like where the light is coming from in #1. Other times on a overcast day or in the shade works pretty well, too: VERY simple "outdoor studio"
There's a step-by-step WB & exposure workflow in post #15.
And be sure to also look at the "Angelina" link.
Did you try any vertical format shots?
yes i think way of turn the camera in a horizontal or landscape depend on target or the view
True, but there's nothing to the sides of either shot that interests me, so why not use the vertical format?
