213 Photo shoot
A bit behind in the editing department. I keep taking a lot of pics lately, so I need to stop doing that and just edit a little.
This is Miles- I shot this on an overcast day with my 50mm 1.8 lens...I LOVE that lens! Very crisp!
I'm pretty sure the aperture I used on these pics was about 2.8 or 3.5 because when taking pics of a kid, it's really hard to get them to sit still long enough to get the focus just right when using 1.8, so I up it a little. I think the blur in the back is still enough for this to be a pleasing picture.
I'm also very happy that I shoot in RAW. RAW really lets you have a lot of control over the exposure and different settings on the pic that usually JPEG decides for you. Here, I wanted to up the shutter speed, but because it was rather overcast, that made the pic darker. I adjusted the exposure and the pic came out nice and bright. Also, in photoshop cs5, in the raw edit screen, I added a gradient filter on the sky so that when I adjusted the exposure, it didn't blow out the sky and make it white, but kept it blue. I LOVE CS5 and RAW!!!
