HEY GUYS!

I've started shooting and found that I LOVE Aperture! What do you guys think of these shots?

Some things I should note:
  • Your lens has a variable max aperture. This means that the max aperture is f/3.5 on the wide end, f/5.6 on the telephoto end, and somewhere in between in the middle focal lengths. I'm noticing a lot of pics are shot at f/5.6 with a telephoto focal length. You can probably back out to 18-25mm and have access to f/3.5
  • Some of your shots show missed focus. 1, 2, 4, 5 seem to have missed their mark. How are you using AF? Are you letting your camera decide where to focus for you, are you manually choosing your AF point, or are you manually focusing?

I'm actually using auto focus, I kind of like half pressing the shutter and letting the camera do the focus. Is that bad? Or should I manually focus the camera by using the focus rings on the lens? Will that result in getting better large Aperture and no missed marks? How do I avoid missing my marks in large Aperture?

These are my main settings. Of course ISO,Shutter and Aperture changes frequently.

Nothing wrong with autofocusing. I was just asking if you selected the AF point yourself or you let the camera choose for you. If I'm reading your rear LCD properly, it says you've chosen the center AF point to autofocus on, in which case I'm a bit lost about your OOF issues with your pics.

Blurriness in 1 could be from the branches moving perhaps? In 2 it seems like he just AF'ed on a portion of the log that isn't in plane with the things on it, so they seem slightly blurry to me. I thought 4 was okay, and I can't really get a bead on 5 o.O

Ahhh, looks like you went with it. the D7000 is a nice camera. You'll enjoy it.

In the future, look into purchasing perhaps the Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 lens- a significant upgrade from the one that your "kit" comes with.
