Soft Focus Family

Tracy Caffrey

Recommended Posts

Hi - 

Help again . . I struggle with pixel peeping with family photos . . . I am use to seniors and close ups where it's easy to see OOF vs sharp focus.  I just read your article on pixel peeping . . . is there a general rule of thumb though for family photos at a distance? I don't want to throw out good images because I am viewing too closely.

What about the attached? 700x700 crop . . . my shutter speed was too slow compared to what I usually shot at plus had backlit situation.  Before I throw it out I just wanted to double check.  Noise is also an issue here . . . It's bascially SOOR but appliled a bit of noise but not enough yet.

1/100. I try not to shoot below 1/160 but somehow for this whole session it was at 1/100. I am so upset with myself. I knew something felt offf but didn't stop and take a minute to figure it out. ISO 1000. My f stop was too high as well. Settings just all wrong.
