I am a total newbie, but I am practicing...A LOT
Any tips much appreciated.
Advice: Use Live View, zoom in, then focus manually. You'll get a much sharper picture.
Framing and color are good. Maybe open the aperture a little more for a bit more background blur.
At the sake of sounding like a complete dummy...why is that?
there are no stupid questions. i was wondering the same thing.
His Aperture was around 3.4, if he goes wider, he gets even shallower DoF. I think some of these orchids could have benefitted from a slightly smaller Ap, to get more of the flower in focus.
The last image really is quite nice.
The focus is just a little off here and there. If you're in live view and zoom in on the image and then fine tune your focus, when you take the picture, you're assured you're absolutely focused.
Thanks, I am really still trying to figure out when and where to change aperture (as well as everything else). I get spazzed out and take a million pics and forget to change settings sometimes too
I can see now that they are on the big computer screen that the focus is off in a few spots, but I still don't understand how live view vs. viewfinder will help me focus. If I use liveview and my face is 18 inches away from the LCD, won't it be harder to gauge focus?
I will try it today, I am just trying to understand the benefit.
Thanks so much for your input
#4 looks like it wants to attack me
eh live view, a clean viewfinder is more true right? no resolution to worry about.
