    Default 50mm practice....6 pics

    I bribed Eva today to let me practice on her with my new lens (the 50mm 1.8 )...so here are some for CC.
    I would have preferred to have taken her eyepatch off but she needed it all day today.

    I'm still trying to nail focus with this lens...pretty hard on a near-3-year-old who never stops wiggling for even ONE second....and it doesn't help that she was wearing her glasses (focus-wise).
    But I took a pic of DH yesterday and focusing was easy! Lol

    These were indoors in front of our big LR window. Natural light only, on manual.

    1. 1/160, F/2.5, ISO 800


    2. 1/100 (should have upped it a tad right? but I was going with my light meter), F/2.5, ISO 800


    3. 1/100 (again, should have upped it a tad), F/2.5, ISO 800


    4. 1/160, F/2.5, ISO 800


    5. 1/100, F/2.5, ISO 800


    6. 1/100, F/2.5, ISO 800

    Those pictures look great for being indoors with only natural light!

    what a cutie! and hooray for practice! I think these look pretty good, especially with ISO 800 (do you run noiseware?) #3 seems a little on the bright side, and while I like the feet, there is a toe chop going on.

    Thank you everyone!! Gwen, ACK I know I hacked one of her toes LOL. I should have re-taken the shot but I didn't because she was on the move the whole time. I have another shot of her holding her feet up in the air (she asked me to take pics of her "stinky toes" LOL!) in which I got all her toes! but it reminded me of one of those newborn poses.
    I haven't run noiseware...I always forget, but also I don't have a good one downloaded yet. I have to look back to see which one was good and free, that I could use. I think I had the ISO up to 800 because of being in the relatively dark room but next to the bright window....I'll have to try going lower next time I take pics at that window to see exactly.

    Here is one more 50mm pic, from today, that I like...does it look ok?

    1/800, F/2.5, ISO 200:

    She is such a doll. I wish I had more light in my house. Pics look great.

    I need your house b/c you let in a lot of light! Well done Amy! I agree with you on some of your ss. They are a tad bit low, but you did great. 2 & 3 might be a bit too bright in some spots on her face though. She's a doll. That last one you posted, it looks as though the focus fell on her hands? I don't know, her face looks a bit soft. LOVE the piggies shot!
