    Some of my mother's new house in AZ

    My mom wanted some nice pictures of her new house in Phoenix. Of course "nice" is relative, and I am still very much an amateur. I tried anyway, and took a bunch of shots and made some HDRs for her. Most were taken at -1, 0, +1 EV...some were at -2, 0, +2 EV, and a couple were -4, -2, 0, +2, +4...

    I don't get it...non-sharp photos

    I just got my D-SLR camera...a Canon Rebel XS. I had a Canon G6 for a long time before that, and wanted to upgrade so I could take some better pictures. Well, I don't understand this, but every picture I've taken so far has come out soft...or un-sharp. I'm just using the lens that came with the...

    Upgrade for the general EF-S 18-55mm lens?
