I don't have a remote either, nor a good tripod. I improvised.
K. This isn't the BEST picture, but I'm proud that I did it on full manual mode with a moving subject. So yeah. I'm learning LOL.
Settings: 1/200 f/5.6 ISO12800
Used built in flash, flash exposure comp. -1/3 (I think.....)
Dogs and cello = my life. And I love teaching tricks and such, hence the jumping over the cello versus posing with it. And Kimma has her tongue out a bit which is adorable.
ETA - I also don't have a remote or tripod LOL. So I had LOTS of outtakes
Shoot, I knew I was going to miss something in my description...good times with friends! another big aspect of home. It's a central hub for fun times!
I have both, didn't use either!
I'm impressed! How do you get the focus so clear on yourself with a bigger depth of field (unless you don't have a huge depth of field and just went for a bokeh effect? I have to go back and look again ). Do you use another item in place of yourself and then switch spots with it?
Obviously if you're taking a picture of something other than yourself (your dogs, items, home, etc.) you wouldn't likely use a tripod or remote even if you had those items, but I want to take a photo of myself, and those are tricky to get - I also can't set my self-timer to take a stream of photos, just one at the time, then repress the button and run back into place.
Just manual focused on Abe and made sure my head was at the same level as him.
Here ate my settings fr that shot.
Thanks guys I was proud of it. I did a bit of editing (and vignette adding) on photoshop after taking the photo, which was great for improving my editing skills as well!
Oh, I meant the photo focused on your hair, with the cell phone picture of Abe in the middle ground and tree in the background! Your hair is so fabulously in focus, how did you do that? My only guess is maybe focused on the fuzzy white blanket/carpet underneath you and lined up with that?
I think the vignette is perfect. It really finishes of the shot nicely.
Oh yeah wrong thread lol!
I put my cell phone where my head would be focused on that then switched!

Mine, squeaking in under the wire as usual. LOL
This one has two layers: it's me, on a trail, in my toe shoes, with a dog - that's very "me" on its own, but it's also a nod to the journey I'm on in life. With a dog by my side and feet on the ground, I can go anywhere and do anything.
Original photo only needed slight exposure adjustment and cropping. Info: 1/500s, f3.5, ISO400, 50mm/f1.8 lens, edited with PS Elements.
This is me.
My dog and my camera. Framed book quotes on my wall. The complete inability to find the straight lines and direct paths.
Aperture: f/2.2 Shutter Speed: 1/100 s ISO:1600 Flash: None Used
I'm posting this weeks and will come back and discuss these today, you're all doing a great job and this week will be more technically based. Sorry for the slightly absentee OP! Renovating a house in three weeks is time consuming, who knew?
I have another question.
A large amount of the time, when I shoot, and I'm looking into the camera, whatever I want to focus on looks completely in focus - eyes, foreground object, entire scene, flower...it happens with every depth of field for me. When I get the photos up on my computer, the focus isn't that clear. I don't know if it's my eyes...my slightly older DSLR that has never had a lens cover....or something else? Does anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it?
Have you tried playing with the diopter adjustment in the viewfinder?
eta: link on the topic: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/insights/blogs/photography/calibrating-diopter-your-camera.html
LOL you're too fast - just added a link for you.
That's only for what you see in the finder though, shouldn't affect camera focus when using auto focus. If it's focused when you look thru finder, it's probably something else.
is there any spot on the picture in focus?
I'll try that - I'm not using autofocus.
<3 That picture. So awesome.
I'm gonna follow these just so I can see awesome pictures!
