Distractions Annoy

Distractions Annoy

Moments That Matter: lesson 3: topic 1: eliminate distractions I thought I was more aware of this issue, and I was for major distractions but many photos I took had to be eliminated due to smaller distractions. even image 3 submitted here has slight distractions on the left, I thought the ones on the right added to the story. Image 1 – iso 400 ap 3.26 1/2000 Image 2 – iso 400 ap 3.26 1... »

Histogram Fumbling

Histogram Fumbling

Moments That Matter: lesson 2: topic 6: histograms Hi Robyn Histogram was rather helpful and yet distracting too. Helpful in that it reassured me for some shots the lighting wasn’t quite right and I needed to correct, but at other times I did feel my eye was telling me it wasn’t and so I was playing with settings to correct and as you know you’ve got to be quick with children.

iso and noise and my struggles

Moments That Matter: lesson 2: topic 4: iso and noise Played around alot with iso and just couldn’t get a good look:( Part of the problem was I wasn’t certain what setting to begin with, in the end I ended up using manual, and then adjusted iso, aperture and shutter. Well happy enough with the first two pics of Sebastian at the pool, but they were taken out of doors, but in a shaded ar... »

Shutter Speed

Shutter Speed

Moments That Matter: lesson 2: topic 3: movement Robyn Seems like each lesson I’m being stretched more and more. Now I’m seeing lots of practice is needed. As you can see with these ones of the children on the trampoline, took about 80 pics and still not entirely happy. Heads cut, limbs cut etc What was happening as I sped up the shutter speed and got rid of the blur the background dar... »

depth of field

depth of field

Robyn Focused on depth of field today, found I prefer a closer up look though have included a far away one that I did appeal (no 4) Wasn’t too sure with activity 2 & 3 whether I was meant to move from where I was to the subject as well as moving the lens, so I played around with both. Image 1 – iso 64, F5.1 and 1/140. I liked how the close up of Mariah and the slight pink colour to... »

Christmas Family Formal Photos

Christmas Family Formal Photos

Moments That Matter: lesson 1: topic 4: bye bye blur Took these photos in the early morning light, about 8.30am overcast day, though heating up. I’ve certainly improved on eliminating the blur Using a compact camera – finepix S3300 1) Taken with a tripod and timer.
