Let me know what you think. I am loving the D80, still learning all the functions.
No exif no care
seems to be some funny shadows/ lighting on her face. or maybe i'm just seeing things.
Yea there was alot of sunlight any tips would be appreciated.
does this work?
Go outside on a bright sunny day and take tons of pictures of everything at -.7 -.3 and 0.
I have a d40 and it has some oddities when it comes to the metering. I shoot in raw so it's not an issue, but its all over the place at times. I've heard the d80 has some of the same peculiarities. First tip for finding where you might be blowing highlights, is hit up on the control pad when you're in review mode, until you find the highlights indicator. Keep that on while you're outside and it'll show you where it's getting close to blowing out (just cause it's flashing doesn't mean it's actually blown out).
1/60th at f13?
Thanks! Ill try that!
You think its too much? I was messing with different fstops seeing how much the dof was changing.
that seems a little silly
Yeah probably is The meter said i was good though. I did more than a few shots using different fstops seeing what the difference was.
On a portrait shot like that it would have looked better to go with a lower f stop. Since the focus was close it was going to blur the background anyway so the reason people are criticizing is that a lower f stop and higher shutter speed would have probably had a nicer fuzziness to the background (bokeh) while minimizing blur.
Yes yes next time I shall
I love my D80... but I like my D300 more.
Great starter SLR.
were you using a flash? if so, the default shutter sync is 1/60th.
Yea I was using some flash.
Flash Used: No
