"You are definitely going to lose some of the background blur by going to a narrower aperture, however it's better than having the front of your subject out of focus. If you want to have a narrower aperture try something like 3.5, but move your…"
"I don't know how far away you were for this shot but, if you were focused at five-feet, your acceptable focus would be .18 feet or 2.16 inches...
If you stopped down to f/11, still focused at five-feet, your depth of field would be 1.29…"
"Do you toggle your focus point? 1.6 would give you a very narrow depth of field.
It looks like the focus fell on the word Nikon, but it is hard to tell. to get everything in focus with that aperture, everything would have to be on the same plane.…"
"It looks like your depth of field is too shallow since the front and back of the image are not in focus. You may need to stand further back but you could try the same photo with a smaller aperture. The smaller the aperture the greater the depth of…"
I have been using my 50mm lens more often but I seem to get blurry shots in the front of the photo. Is it because I don't stand far enough back? I love the bokeh and softness it provides but I don't think I am using it correctly. Any suggestions? Here is an example. I had it on evaluative metering and F1.6.Thanks for any help.…See More
I have been wondering if I should do something with the photos like maybe a slideshow or an album? For now my plan is to blog about my favorite photo of each month, and my favorite photo of the year. If you have any ideas please share! My blog is http://twonoodles.com/. :-)
My cat just jumped 3 feet off the desk when I came into your page to leave you a message. LOL. Poor old girl. She is back to sleep.
Thank you for stopping in on my page and it was especially nice to get a message from you. Also, thank you for your condolences on my girl, Starlit. We miss her. A lot. She was a sick girl. An Amish Puppy Mill rescue that never did seem to get it all together in this life. Hopefully, she is peaceful where she is now. She had a good two years with us and I am happy we could give that to her.
Another consideration would be to develop a photo (your best one) and take it to the house. Knock on the door and tell the resident that you have been driving by the house for a long time and loved their flowers and so took a photo and wanted them to have a copy. It MAY be some older folks who just don't have the energy anymore to take care of their home but the plants kind of take care of themselves. My house looks a little overgrown quite often also.
