Some Bleeding Hearts and crabapple tree. Tips Please!

2 posts in this topic

I took these pics the other day. I need some tips on how to get a little sharper pic. i dont know if its how good the glass is or its my settings. The one with the fog i took at 9:32 pm. It was getting a little foggy and it looked cool. I don't know if i was shacking the camera to much or what, if i could change some setting to it get it still. I am using my Canon D30, 28-105mm.

The Shutter speed was 2 seconds, Aperture 4.0, ISO 200, Glass 28-105mm,


The Shutter speed was 1/1000, Aperture 8.0, ISO 200, Glass 28-105mm,


The Shutter speed was 1/45, Aperture 4.5, ISO 200, 105mm

Hegs, I am assuming the first shot your shutter speed was 2 seconds? You really can't expect to handhold your camera at much under 1/60s without fairly good technique. There is an old saying that you want your shutter speed to be at least equal to the focal length of your lens. So if you are using a 105mm lens like yours at the long end you would want at least 1/125s.

You can increase your shutter speed by changing your ISO. You will need a higher ISO as the light levels drop. So in this case you would want to bring that ISO up to 800 or higher to get your shutter speed up a point that is hand holdable.

The third shot would benefit as well from raising your ISO again to get your shutter speed up.

    • I'm looking for suggestions on a dog blind for duck hunting. My son wants to train his lab pup to stay in a blind in the duck boat anybody have any suggestions on brand or what to look for.  
    •   Gee whiz, it took me 2 seconds to google it. Looks like it was The Hill.
    • Sure puts the Ion to shame.... 
    •     You're ok with the status quo, too, but you have never provided any rational explanation as to why.      
    • I am flying from Phoenix to Omaha tomorrow evening.  I do not remember the last time i drove in snow.  hopefully it will be plowed by the time i get in at 730pm.  
    • What's wrong with letting adults decide what they do with themselves and letting states make the calls when necessary?    As to your second paragraph, does oxycontin get treated like ibuprofen? Are all legal drugs treated the same or are there standards used for certain types of legalized drugs?    At the core I don't like the feds involved in regulating drugs,guns,tobacco etc but if I have to choose between making them illegal,which sends them underground where there is no consistency, no standards, no way if the consumer being able to know what they are buying and legalizing them where at least they are subject to some measures of consistency in manufacturing then I would grudgingly take the latter.    You always seem to get hung up on this all or nothing kick when there are other options that can be used.     
    • Well I went to the dealership to order my vinyl and lucky I did, one of the salesman told me the precut wood I had ordered is sized for carpet and not vinyl. If I use the vinyl I'd have a quarter inch gap or so in between the pieces...So now I'm gonna go with carpet which sucks since I had my heart set on vinyl...oh well
    • By the time the wedder morjits are done hyping it down here, it'll be the storm of the century, with thousands stranded and the National Guard dropping supplies from C-130's., pulled down the runway by herds of reindeer. 
    • I was up last weekend.  It was my 3rd trip of the year.  I canceled my rooms for my March trip.  Call the Hamilton House...2 rooms just opened up for the 8-11th of March.     There's a ton of Walleyes in LW, but debatable how many big ones.  Big fish seem to be in decline.  Pick any reason you want, but it's a fact.  The big fish are nowhere near as prevalent.  That doesn't mean you won't catch one...or multiple...but you're going to have to work.  If you're not in the fish, move.  If you find fish, but not bigger ones...move.   I'm a mover...I'll move 5 times in a day easy.  I know guys who will wait it out all day and they might be the guys who catch some big fish, but they're usually the guys who only catch a few eaters and nothing big.  just my opinion.  Good luck and above all, don't let all the fisherman completely devoid of courtesy be justification to abandon yours.  
    • hahaha just watched the 6 o'clock news, doesn't sound like anything north of the twin cities is going to get anything.
