Amber, THANKYOU so much for posting that! I have forever been kicking myself wondering what I am doing wrong and I think I am just expecting too much and or having motion blur at the same time.
You are correct the examples posted are of a different shot cause in that shot it was more noticable to me. My settings on the 2 close up shots were 1/250 f/4.0 and iso 250 shot at 135mm. It might be that when I get excited about how someone looks or is posing that I just snap away not noticing hand motion but I thought at 1/250 it would be okay. Do you think if I got a lens with IS I would have less of this problem cause I notice it alot. I am glad that I am not missing focus atleast.
I like your edits of the first set; but in my opinion in #3 that red section of the building provides more interest; I liked it there.
Of the 2 new additions (sepia ones) I LOVE the 2nd one but not in sepia; can you do it in color or B&W? I think she looks beautiful there, that is definitely my favorite shot but would love to see it in color or B&W.
I also wonder, did you get any shots of her smiling?
I kinda like the sepia one. But it seems sepia is a big hit and miss with people. I love a sepia one I did of Micah last fall, but got very mixed reviews on it from others. Some loved it, some really didn't.
Great thanks girls I will post new edits as I work on them I'll also add some with her smiling I appreciate the cc
I went shopping today cause it's my sons 16th birthday !!! So we took off school and spent the day at the mall. While he was trying on shoes I ran into a dress store. I found 2 dresses very country/lacy looking that would look great on some of the girls I shoot. I was thinking I should not get them since I bought the chair but looked at the price and they were marked down to 1.50 a dress! So I got 2 dresses for 3.00 and I am sure it will make some girl happy when I pull it out and ask if she wants to wear it! I'll add pics later of the 2. Anthony got some great stuff also Can't believe my baby is 16!
A dress I found to go with the chair! I'm taking pics of a 6 year old this weekend so I am going to put her in this on the chair and pull up her hair in a bun so it won't look too much. Hope it works out how I see it in my head
