We spent the day at Matt and Betsy’s
Ginger’s aunt Susan asked if I’d take some family pictures – I’m glad I did.
Taking these pictures didn’t go without problems. These are all part of a second set of pictures I took. The first set were all blurred. For some unknown reason, the camera had a major problem – it looked like the camera moved during each of the previous shots. I had the shutter speed fairly high for the dark conditions 1/80th of a second, and the camera was mounted on my new heavy weight tripod, so there’s no explanation for the problem. Checking on the Internet it seems that focus errors on the D7000 abound, though this doesn’t look like a focus error. More research is needed – I can’t afford to run into this problem again when I’m shooting.
I changed lenses and the problem went away – which is telling in itself. The family were very good and came out for a second crack at the pictures. Oh well, it could have been worse – if I hadn’t chimped the shots straight away I might not have spotted the problem.Copyright © 2011 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.
