Am I doing something wrong? Sony A57
Jan 31, 2013

Hey all,

Returned a Nikon D5100 for a Sony A57, and here I am.  I had intended on buying the NEX5R, but after playing with the A57 in the store, I had to have it.

I've been playing around with it a little, and am still learning (I'm very new to the DSLR/T world).  My pictures of stationary objects have come out great, but capturing my son on photo is a little more difficult.

I came here to ask, what the heck is going on with this picture?  The graininess is terrible, and his skin doesn't look smooth; it looks plastic.  What is going on here? Check out the graininess around his nose and mouth.  Am I expecting too much from the camera?  Or do I just need more practice?
