last 2 seem a little soft, but I LOVE the expression in the last one.
#1 has a lot of potential but it doesn't quite do it for me. I'd like to see some interaction between the mom(?) and girl. the light is spot on, though
#2 again has lots of potential but maybe needed to be shot from a different angle or something.
btw, mommy is
what do you use to test your lighting?
for outdoor use i will put the camera in landscape mode to get a gauge for what setting the camera choose, and then take that into "M" and adjust however. the "sport" modes are usually pretty good too for outdoor metering.
oops, forgot to number them.
1. was with tamron 17-50, shot from the hip. I was walking in front of them.
2. & 3. were shot with AIS 50mm 1.2. kinda hard even stepped down to get correct plane of focus
I actually forgot to look at my histogram after each shot(Im so inconsistent when Im shooting). I dont own a lightmeter
you dont need a light meter, most cameras have a built in one that works pretty good for everyday shooting. depending on what im shooting, i will use the mode settings to help me pick the right shutter, aperture, etc, and then just experiment.
with the ais mf lens, that is all I could do.
#2 and #3 as noted are back-focused (you hit the ruffles of the girl's shirt). 1.2 is tight, but not so great for candids and squirmy subjects IMO, which is apparent in these shots. Portraits, bridals and the like, sure.
