and that was what I wanted in focus.. is it?
Oh, and why a rose-- I LOVE ROSES!!!
Pop up flash, not pin sharp
the front most petal is in focus. The photo is pretty soft and the flash is pretty harsh. I'd give it some USM sharpening at the least. IRL, I'd put the rose in bright natural light and reshoot without a flash. just my 2 cents.
I used flash--- I wonder why.. It was outside.. let me see if I have another..
why did you shoot in shutter priority?
try again, shoot in manual, f/8, 1/100, ISO200... If there isnt enough light, just crank the ISO up some. You've got plenty of room.
If you place the camera on a tripod it will get the picture a little more sharp no matter what shutter speed you are shooting at. Also you might want to think about steping a little farther back. Some lenses don't work the best when you are on the closer end of its focal range.
I will force myself to get my tripod out. I have no idea why that thing intimidates me.
= ) Pierre- You are right.. All the tips I get here are 100% spot on.
I am happy to share. I DID pull out that small tiny book called a manual that came with my camera. = ) For some reason my camera wasn't taking 8 frames a second (I really don't think it's that fast, but they claim it is.). So, I pulled out the manual. I fixed it, I fixed it.. Well, it said it could be caused by a low battery or full memory thingy card.. My memory card was almost full.
But a few weeks ago I was complaining that the color in my picture looked fake.. Well, I have no idea what I did.. but I want it back to the fake again..
Ehh, going to get my camera to try and get it back to the way it was.. before I "fixed" it..
PS- I have said this before, and I will say it again.. This camera is really heavy, or I have a weak hand. I wish I could find another lens like the one I use, but lighter.. if that sames sense.
That tripod is always with me.. in my car.
What lens are you shooting with?
You crack me up
