I think I somewhat got landscapes - about 20% of my exposures are not being deleted right a way, but my portraits are still an occasional hit in the sea of misses. I am shooting my kids mostly and have no lighting or any other setup, but I was lucky to capture some good expressions of my daughter. Now if only I knew what to do with them now so they won't look like snaps, but more refined. 2 of them are taken with a point and shoot, last one is fresh with my xSi and 50mm/f1.8 I realize that inside with no lights and handheld camera chasing my restless kids I have not many chances of getting good focus, but I am still frustrated that most pics are out of focus - I have to go to high ISO to get faster shutter speeds, but that creates lots of noise. Are there any good reads about portraiture? Please butcher me with C&C. 1. 2. 3.
