Thoughts on my photography? - Page 4

Resize! Also, you are aware that more megapixels =/= better quality, right?

As for this picture, stabilize the camera and lower the ISO. That should give you a cleaner image.

The subject looks out of focus. The relatively extreme noise of course makes it less accurate as well, but I guess you were trying to get too close. Check the photos you've taken right after taking them to see whether they are good or bad, if the latter, try again differently (a bit further away, so on)!

If your camera does not allow you to select the ISO sensitivity yourself, you can help the noise issue by selecting night mode and keeping it stable. That should "force" it to use longer exposure times, thus allowing the camera to lower the ISO.

Another surprisingly badly known tip for shooting with compact cameras that don't allow much tinkering; point the camera to another subject that is roughly the same distance away from you but is lighter/darker than your desired subject. Half-press the shutter release button, point the camera back towards your original target, frame and press the button completely down. This way you can manipulate aperture and exposure to some degree, I did it a lot with my first digital camera.

Looks out of focus and noisy. Like I said before, stabilizing the camera, turning down ISO manually, and focusing better should get you better images

I dont have a tripod and the camera was on the desk, I was not holding it, how would I go about turning down the ISO? the camera focus' itself, on the screen it looks good quality but after I take the picture it looks like crap.

It looks like it was handheld to some degree, maybe not completely, but I can't think of a way that your camera could face down like that without your hand on it. The blurriness looks like it comes from the low shutter speed of 1/8. As for ISO, that's buried somewhere in your menu settings.

This


The higher the ISO, the more noise in the picture. here's an example I just snapped.

First picture is ISO 100
Second is at ISO 3200 (enhanced)

The last two are comparisons of the two cropped to actual size (yes, the area is out of focus )
