Drink more coffee

During our outing today Mauro and I stopped for a drink and so I could switch up lenses. This lovely young lady asked if I was getting any good shots so I showed her a few and then took her photo to show her how my wide angle lens is great for portraits. If I’d known she was going to be so darn photogenic I would have taken more care about my settings. I should have upped my ISO to maybe 400 and opened my aperture to f2.8. Instead, I shot at f5.6 and ISO 100, which gave my a shutter speed of 1/6th of a second — way too slow to get a sharp shot. Making the changes I suggested here would have upped my shutter speed to 1/40th to 1/50th of a second and the shot would have been perfectly sharp. Long story short, she was a terrific subject but the photo is just a tad blurry because of the slow shutter speed. My bad. In fairness, I wasn’t thinking about taking her photo as much as I was about showing her how wide my lens is. Even though it’s not entirely sharp, I have to say this is my favourite photo of the day. She was just sooo darn cute! Gotta say, I’m glad she doesn’t work at my local coffee shop or I’d be in there three times a day. Anyway, hope you like it.

    Her personality in this shot makes up for it! I’d go back and try again! She’s sweet! 🙂

  2. I agree, a return trip is needed. How can you live with yourself to not get a better photo of her? 😉
