Thanks for the ideas guys. I am aware of using the correct F stop settings on a small tripod.
Still looking for creative ideas on how to display the several watches in one photo. Never had this problem before when shooting other products.....
Need to get a few shots of five or six watches. Been brainstorming for ideas, and unable to think of anything creative. Don't want to simply line up the watches on a table and take a photo looking down on them. All watches will need to be in focus.
I may try a B&W version of this photo. The photo was totally by accident as I was flying over a lake with the drone and spotted the boat moving across the water. Had very little time to prepare. Boat was moving fast.
Considering using this photo, but concerned the sun reflection is too bright. If it is, is there anything that can be done as from what is understood, that bright of an area has lost data.
Should I leave it as is, or try to reduce the bright reflection?
Thanks for any input.
Thanks for the replies. The body is a D800 Nikon, with a 24-70 F2.8 lens. I was at F3.5. The line of people were roughly 10 feet away from the camera. We were indoors in a conference room setting. Cloudy day, window blinds were shut, with lights on in the room.
I don't shoot people much at all. Recently did a group photo of six or seven people lined up in a line facing the camera. Everyone was pretty much the same distance from the camera (six feet or so) and the people on the ends were less in focus than those in middle.
What settings (Nikon) should...
Was hoping I could find someone who could lighten this photo up a little. I am unable to do so myself as I have limited resources at this time.
Edit** How can I submit the fullsize photo? The one here is small.
The photo is in my gallery here on thephotoforum.com

Went to KEH today to pick up Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II paper weight. While there, I went ahead and bought another Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II. Appears to be in very good shape. Hope I didn't make a mistake.
What do folks do with their manual focus Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II lenses? Not sure...
Attempted to clean the CPU contacts. Still won't work.
Took the lens to KEH Camera and had them check the lens out. They claim the lens does need a new AF motor. KEH does not have the parts necessary to fix since the lens is older VR 1 version.
Am I better off sending the lens to Nikon...
The trip that is coming up is London. Enjoy going to Hyde Park and shooting the various birds in and around that area. That could be the only place I would use the 70-200.
Probably the best thing to do is to take both 24-70 and 70-200 but I am always nervous about leaving glass behind in...
Have an older 70-200mm F-2.8G lens. Just learned that something is preventing the AF from working. Have tried this lens on multiple bodies. Have double and triple checked that AF is selected on the lens (and various bodies).
When attempting to use the lens, I look through the view finder and...
Planning to travel to London in late March. Have been there several times in past 10 years.
Interested in getting some good shots. Have already done all of the usual tourist stops. Not really interested in those.
Where in London can photographers get some good non-touristy shots?
