Need help getting sharper pictures out of my 18-105 & D5100
11 months ago

Howdy,

I am having the darnedest of times with my 18-105. I love my camera, and I love my 35 1.8g, but I just can't seem to get a decent picture of my kiddo with my 18-105. I have tried VR on and off, I have read about the proper way to hold the the camera, but at the end of the day, I keep getting soft pictures. I tried bumping up the shutter speed, but the didn't help much. Pictures got darker, but not sharper.

This is an average picture of my son, it looks decent enough cropped on the internet, but at full res, his face is way too soft for my taste (with the 35 1.8g I can count his eye lashes):

I am a complete neophyte, so the answer may be obvious, but going over my head.

Nikon D5100
