  • Thanks for that. I'm not sure if my camera will adjust ISO while the aperture and speed are set. I'll have to learn and take into consideration that aperture diffraction thing. Mainly I think I'm ...
  • Thanks for that.  Yes I'm thinking speed is critical.  At least insofar as it shouldn't be slower than about 400. So how can I control my speed and my aperture on this EOS?  Must go to M I guess.
  • That's an interesting little discussion.  Makes me think along with understanding my camera I perhaps need to use a tripod, too?  For the sake of rigid control of distance to subject in order to ...
  • I just haven't learned enough about my camera.  the one I'm talking about here is the eos550. if I want a speed up around 400 and I want an aperture about f22 what do I shoot on? Full manual? Or I ...
  • Thanks for that.  I intend to try some additional lighting.  And to get out there early and late more often. I took some more bad ones today.  More and more I think my own focusing is a problem. An ...
  • Well thanks for that. That'd be right.  First, but, I'll get it figured how to take any sort of acceptable pic.  :)
  • I don't know.  So I viewed in DPP and checked 'info'.  Color space for each  (.jpg and cr2) was sRGB.   Is that it?
  • Thank you my friend,  very pleasant words to read, of course.  I like them too and it's great to think someone else shares the pleasure. Don't worry.  I'm not too fussy, if I'm giving that ...
  • I will.  Thanks.  I never like cranking up the speed because of ISO going up but this thread has shown me not to fear that any more so I'm more than happy to do it.  :)
  • Sorry I missed your post. Why change the 18-55 - for what?  An 'IS' or 'STM' I guess from what you write. I don't know what they are.  I'll look into it. I use manual focusing for preference. I ...
  • Yep. But that is not 'what I want the image to become' is the point. I could see what's since been pointed out to me to be the results of over exposure and camera shake - and probably poor focusing. ...
  • I have  a new idea.  Metering.  I've moved it onto spot metering.  i think that might help.
  • what i am seeing is that DPP has not rendered jpg like the camera. edit: nonsense. or part sense. I've got folders on my pc like that: jpg all lighter than cr2. But I just downloaded >700 pics from ...
  • Thanks for this.  I'm accustomed to think of speed as the most important because as you can see I'm a victim of blur.    You got that at 1/1000  with an ISO of 100. I doubt I could do that.  In the ...
  • shouldn't shooting in the shade overcome the harsh light thing?  and if I'm setting my speed to avoid shake and then opening up the aperture I guess you're advocating shooting in manual?  I ...
  • okay.  thank you.  I've taken note of all that for future reference.  it's all new to me. :)
  • that's a relief, because I want to buy a sax - and I can't afford that, either..  my toys... :)
  • I don't think I can tell the difference.  Maybe the bottom one is a little darker. I've found I was using jpg's because of a download hassle.  They're made by the camera, I shoot in raw and jpg,  ...
  • I think I've got too many other calls on my purse to be springing for another camera just now.  But it sounds interesting.  What cameras would you have in mind as a sort of starter to that realm?
  • oh, they addressed it alright.   It all seems pretty definite now.  It's all my fault, too slow, camera shake, maybe too close for focus.  all good news because it means I can fix it.  :) thanks ...
