First time using a DSLR, how did I do? - Page 2

post #11 of 36
Your composition is good, but indeed, the pictures are quite noisy, which doesn't work that well for computer shots (imho). A tripod, or actually any stable shooting platform should work.

Thanks Will definitely try with a tripod tomorrow, and also manual settings. I will probably be posting in here for some help with choosing the right ones

So you put a lens meant for crop sensors on a FF body?

Yeah, not a whole lot to choose from (edited my post above) Other than that one, and I think a 55-200, I'll take a look and see if there's any others tomorrow.

Yeah, use the 50mm. You'll get a lot more control over the DoF and be able to use lower ISO's (if you're shooting at a wider aperture).

I tried a few of the tips you guys gave me, I used a low ISO (100-125), changed white balance setting to fluorescent (not sure if this is right), and set the lens to 18mm and used manual focus, also found a tripod in the basement I think these ones definitely have a lot less noise, but it looks like its time to clean the side window

Also, I think another reason I'm having a hard time focusing, is because my glasses are broken, so I'm a little blind
