So, in relation to my previous post, here are a few of my photos. I've just started using my new lense (50mm 1.8) and this is what I have come up with so far.

A lot of the time I have trouble with underexposing my pictures...I can usually fix this is photoshop, but I'd like to get better at determining how to properly calibrate my camera.

I'm also struggling with sharpness...it's been very difficult to get my pictures nice and sharp!















All C&C welcome!

Cute! I can see the under-exposure issues and the lack of sharpness. This will get better with more practice. I struggled with sharpness for quite a while. I still struggle with properly exposing images. Rest assured that your issues are issues that every photographer goes through at some point. Just keep shooting! I recommend shooting stationary objects to really start nailing your focus. Go out and shoot some flowers and things outside. This will give you some good light and an opportunity to take your time.

your shutter speed is 1/30 your aperture is f/1.8 and your ISO 200.
Your lack of sharpness is caused by slow shutter speed and wide open aperture.
Don't fear your ISO. raise it up so that you can use an acceptable shutter speed.

f/1.8 is do-able BUT it's hard to nail focus wide open so you really have to practice.

THANK-YOU!

I will admit that I do get scared of my ISO, as I fear the grainyness that comes along with it! I'll practice with a faster shutter speed for sure and play around with ISO as well!

i've seen some amazing images by pros shot in low light with high ISOs. the key to shooting with a higher ISO is to nail your lighting. If you can get your lighting spot on without using photoshop to fix it, you'll have a lot less grain.

I think its definitely better to have a little grain and tack sharp.. Its very hard to get so sharp with a slow shutter speed, keep practicing though!!!
