I'll try to find a picture that shows what I'm talking about.

Edit: here is a good example.

Yeah the camera is focusing just below where the birds are. I dont know much about sonys but on my camera you can pick where you want to focus.


BTW that pic has some potential. Your Iso was set too high though, thats whats giving you the grain.

if your having trouble using auto focus, maybe try your hand at Manuel focus if you haven't already.

Wow, way to open a door of a million new possibilities. I didn't even know about manual zoom. It's safe to say that I will be trying to master that now.

Here is one of my first attempts at exposure comp optimization as craig advised.

Do some research on Depth of Field


speaking of focus

Glad you like the manual focus thing.

This isnt anything special, but i am proud that i thought about the comp before i shot. i knew i wanted the 3 BMW's in the frame, and that the black and gray would make the blue stand out, and that the reflections would add something else to look at other than the cars. first time i thought about all of that before a shot, with out really having to think.

Sneaky that is a really nice picture. What lens do you have? long exposure looks really nice.

Really good picture, if that fourth car wasn't there it could have been a great portfolio picture. Sucks that you can't control all variables, lol.

Thanks, yeah I used the tilt shift effect. Basically you manipulate the depth of field and your eyes plays a trick on your brain making everything appear miniature.

I shoot with a Nikon D60 and while I almost always use my 35mm 1.8, I used the kit lens on this one.

I think I posted the first shot before, but I'm not sure.

First shot is my first attempt at a Lunar shot with no tripod.

Second, is my second and latest attempt. Used a tripod, and had to crop a bit.

The Moon

Moon Shot attempt #2
