More on Settings

I went back to the park this morning. The weather wasnt great. Very cloudy and misty.  Again, I wanted to work on my setting to figure out what I need to do to get the best picture I can.

I feel like the white is over exposed in this shot. Settings f3.5    1/800  ISO 800   50mm

I really liked this one.  My setting were  f2.8     1/320s  ISO 800   50mm

Ive tried 3 days in  a row to get this shot with out success. Setting on this were  f2.8    1/200s   ISO 800  50mm.  Im not sure what to do to make it better. I wonder if I increase the shutter speed, but that will change the aperture. Ill try that maybe tomorrow.
Guiness turned out better, same setting as for Miley picture.

  "Hey dont leave us out here".  This shot looks so much better on my computer. I carried the dogs out there.  And accidentally let Miley go in a bad way, and her back end, tail and all got wet. She wasnt happy with me and wouldnt come to me to carry her back. It took a lot of luring to get her to come.


This one also looks better on my computer. The rock right there is very blue. Im not sure why.





Im getting closer to getting this shot but Im still not there yet.  Settings   f3.5  1/250  ISO 800  50mm

Settings  f 4.0    1/320  ISO 800  50mm . I also changed the metering.

If you have any suggestion for, I open to anything.  I only carry two lens.  A 50mm f 1.4, and a  70-300 f 4-5.6.  I dont have any money to get a better lens for action shots.

The mist over the water makes an excellent background - just too pretty!

LOVE the first photo.

My sister's going to be taking photos for a local obedience trial and she's running into the same problem.. the lens she owns just isn't fast enough for crisp action shots.

Miley and Guiness won't mind their mom doing more experiments on her camera and they are happy to pose for her in the beautiful park.
The mist is beautiful!!!

I double clicked on that first shot, and it is stunning! The mist makes it look magical.

Great job!

I LOVE the first and third-from-last photos of Guiness and Miley together; they are absolutely stunning. The mist in many of the photos just makes them look even more incredible.

Love the 11th photo, of the two of them. I agree the light was perfect for this type of thing...the mist is just special. Have you followed Scot's photography blog? Here's his link. I think you might like it and he may in turn follow you and give you advice.... http://stphoto.wordpress.com/

I think they are turning out great!

Can you decrease your ISO which will mean you can increase your focal point? I think you can keep your zoom out and be patient, wait for the shot then you can edit the photo for close up. Just a thought...
