I'm just sharing all kinds of goodies this week. No need to thank me. But if you really want to get me something there is ONE thing. Ok, so that's actually two things, but who's counting? And, if you missed my little HTML tutorial over the weekend go here.
Now. On to more important things.
So, you want some great fashion shots, do ya? Do ya?! Ones that looks like someone else took your picture and not some out-of-focus crap shots that you managed to take yourself?
Well, yesterday before I set out to do my errands I snapped a few pictures. Guess what? They were crap! Literally. My face was all out of focus, and the depth of field was ridiculous.
After a few moments of heightened frustration and cursing at the street, I tried a new approach, and then apologized to the street. I set my camera on the setting I wanted, found the position and distance where I wanted to stand, pressed the shutter half-way down to focus on the tri-pod, then switched the camera to Manual. Be sure to set your self timer too!
It doesn't matter what you're focusing on just as long as the distance is the same wherever the camera is at. Just be sure that your aperture is not on the lowest setting, otherwise you'll have blur issues.
And the results... Should I break the news to Brandon?
