Thanks, Duncan! this video will be very helpful.
Although, you’re not able to tell from the photograph, I had the flower at a slight angle. I was having a lot of trouble with the depth of field. I know I still have a lot to learn. Do you have any suggestions?
For the redo assignment, the harsh lighting was obtained by removing the lampshade; for the more diffused lighting, the lampshade was left in place.
You’re right! I’ll redo the assignment. Those so-called ‘dust’ in the photographs, is actually lint from the paper towel I used to dry the wine glasses.
Thanks for your honesty and your feedback.
Thanks, Duncan, I really appreciate the challenge! Up until now, I’ve generally avoided moving subjects because they are so tricky to compose, but I’ll get it right this time!
Here are a couple other images that I had taken this past weekend at this historical event, that I believe should have submitted in the first place. Most of what I took that day, I wasn’t too happy with because my camera was on the incorrect setting (shutter was too slow).
Thanks Duncan, for your feedback. I really do like that spot removal tool.
Initially, when I went out shooting for this assignment, the first image I took had less distortion, but I thought it was less interesting. The 2nd one (submitted), I was seeking a different perspective, would it have improved the image if I had cropped it? I guess I was also concerned with ‘amputating’ the image in the wrong place. Attached are both the initial and cropped image. Thanks again.
I retook the ‘shallow depth of field’ image again because I realized after enlarging it on my screen, it doesn’t appear sharp, plus the lighting appears to be better.
I used aperture priority at the widest my lens would allow to avoid increasing the ISO and due to insufficient lighting. The 2nd image, I used a more narrow aperture because the depth of field was too shallow. Everything was mostly out of focus at 2.8.
Regarding image 3910, the correct orientation is portrait. I’m not sure why it turned sidewards, but I was initially having trouble uploading them to this site. For some odd reason, the orientation for the images are correct on my laptop.
When you referred to cropping, do you mean ‘cropping by editing’ or ‘too close’ as in composing of my images? I’m now realizing-I was actually too close!
