Camera settings

Last week someone asked  me to take pictures of her puppy.  I was happy to do it because I love take dog pictures.  But sadly I didnt do a good job. Im not sure what the heck happen but a lot of my pictures were blurry.  But after reading, I think my ISO was set to high, which made the picture grainy. At least thats all I can think of because lots of them were still shots. But very disappointing and frustrating.  So all week Ive been trying to work on learning my camera better.  Today I really thought I had it down.  I knew what setting to  change to get what I wanted. LOL, yea right.

 Some turned out ok.

Then I tried to work on Metering. The next two picture were really dark except for Miley and then I had to lighten them with the photo program.

Then I had several blurry ones which I wont post. But some came out cool.

I took these this week too.

So as you can see, I have a long way to go to figure out what Im doing.

Not that far. I think your photos are beautiful as well as the subjects.

Join the club, thousands of photos and I still haven't figured it all out! You have some eally nice shots by the way.

I think these photos are great! Moving dogs require a lens with a fast shutter speed. If the lighting is at all dull it gets even harder. Your action shots look really clear and crisp to me.

Beautiful dogs and pictures!
I'm still using point-and-shoot right now. Sometimes, I did try to be a bit brave but they were all either too dark or too blur. In fact, I'm struggling with my camera. LOL!
So glad you've figured out yours : )

I think you are doing fantastic. I really love the solo one of Guiness with the water in the background.

Well I know there is lots to photography and I am sure you will figure out what you want to know, but I think your photos are amazing!! I like so many of them I could never pick a favorite even if my life depended on it - :)

I've always admired your photos...and whatever you're learning is way ahead of me because I'm still using the automatic mode! :)

Marie said...

I'm with Dawn. I have a decent camera, but I have yet to do as well messing around with the settings on it as I have just leaving it on auto. Sad but true. LOL

I always enjoy your photos, so I'm happy that you're playing around with the camera. :-)

I think you are correct about your ISO (made a comment on the ISO before I read this). Back in the day of film, we used 800 for inside shots. 100 or 200 if we were shooting outside and 400 was sort of multi-purpose. The lower your ISO, the better quality you will have.

These photos are really beautiful! I don't think you have to go very far -- it looks like you know exactly what you're doing. :)

Keep snapping pics! I love seeing photos of these pretty doggies. ;)

Woofs & hugs,
