Soft Focus Family

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.

Hi Tracy, I've moved this thread to the correct area.

You're not imagining it, this is no good, I'm afraid.  It's motion blur.  What was your shutter speed?

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.
