    Hi there,

    Can you repost these as jpgs. Tif files don’t seem to work very well here.

    Thanks!

    Sure. I changed my second shot for one I like better.

    Hi Eli,

    Thanks for reposting these images. I’m not sure why tif files don’t work on here.

    Also thanks for enrolling in IPS. If you ever have any questions or concerns you can email office@photogrpahyicon.com Even if you just have a question about a camera setting or need an equipment recommendation.

    Now onto the critique.

    Here is the EXIF data for these two images:

    I like that you’ve tried to do here. You’ve added a little spice to the image. (couldn’t resist) made a much more dynamic little scene. It’s certainly more interesting than the image of the just the bottle so that’s great.

    Now, there are a few things you’ll notice right away about your angle.jpg image. For one it’s out focus. Well it’s actually hard to tell if it’s out of focus or if it’s just camera shake.

    It may be that you have gotten closer than your lens’ minimum focus distance. Every lens has a distance whereby if something is closer than said distance it will not be able to focus on it. If you look at the barrel of your lens it might display this distance and a range of distances going all the way to infinity. this is the range of distances in which that lens can focus properly on your subject.

    Alternatively the image is suffering from camera shake and is not as sharp as it could but. Don’t worry there is a simple solution for this issue for a photo like this, just use a tripod! This would also refuse the grain/noise of the photo because you could shoot at lower ISO.

    The camera probably did this on it’s own because you we’re in a dark place when you took this photo. Cameras often try to compensate from a lack of light by cranking up their ISO (basically just makes the camera’s sensor more sensitive)

    Don’t worry all of this is totally fine and you did really well.

    It looks like you tried to set white balance manually and that’s great! Although it appears to be quite a yellow image so your WB seems to be off a bit. It’s a bit too orangey yellow.

    Just remember to match your white balance to the light source wherever possible. Also shoot in raw in case you get your WB or exposure wrong a little.

    Does this all make sense?

    Do you have any questions?

    I look forward to seeing what you come up with on the next assignment.

    Thanks!
