I'm glad you did, I hadn't seen this thread before. I'm about as far north as you can get -- 5 miles from Michigan & just a little bit west of the Ohio line. Right off the toll road. New Haven isn't very far away :) Fairly new to SG, but loving it!


So are you up near Angola/Fremont area?

How far away were you from your daughter?

Probably three or four feet -- no more than five. (With a 50mm fixed lens, the only zoom is "foot zoom" lol)

OK, maybe that's my problem. I'm up too close. I knew from reading here and other places that a foot was about was close as you could get and I guess I was thinking I should be that close. I'm going to have to try and move back.

Thanks.

I didn't think about checking shutter speed. I thought that would take care of itself, but I will check that also.

I also didn't think about checking the settings on Auto and trying to duplicate. A very good idea.

This is an example of how shallow the depth of field is at 1.4:

You can see how just my daughter's eyes, apples of her cheeks and some of her lips are in focus, but farther from that narrow focal point -- even before her ears, and closer than that narrow focal point -- the tip of her nose, she starts to get blurry.

I'm sorry, I didn't realize looking for sites with photographs went against anything. I would have never asked. I was just want to look at photos for inspiration, etc. I am trying to do the Photo Focus. Again, I apologize.
