The Hat

The HatSometimes a photo just takes my breath away and this is one of those Richard, simplicity itself (which does not mean easy) and so beautiful. The art of studio photography personified, we can all learn a lot from this photograph

last jay honestAnother great photo Ronnie, I know how tricky Jays are to photograph. I have really enjoyed looking at them and only on this one noticed something I could not previously put my finger on. I was wondering what type of focus you were using and which part of the body you were focusing on. My eyes are not great but the centre (often the body) looks sharper than the eye. IMHO for the best results the eye is the point of focus.

Just a small thing which may make a difference.

Mr Stonechat

Mr StonechatLuke, Nice photo. I was intrigued to see you are using manual (very wise). I noticed on the picture some of the black tones around the head are lost. In the spirit of sharing knowledge I wonder if this would help. I went on a course recently and the tutor showed us how to us the histogram to obtain perfect exposure. I guess if you look at the histogram for this picture you would see data running out the left (this means lost detail in this colour). SO when in manual do not use the screen to check exposure us the histogram, in a perfect world there should be no data being lost to the left (dark colours, black) or to the right (light colours/white). There is a pretty good description at http://www.sphoto.com/techinfo/histograms/histograms.htm, the histogram shown at the top is pretty much perfect.

Hope all this helps
