My Aunt Kelly and two of her girls drove out from Utah last week.
So I've got a bazillion photos to share, but need to finish sorting through them and editing them first, so I figured I'd just share my favorite one (of Annie and my aunt) for now...
Also, I've been getting a lot of emails and comments asking about my lens selection and camera settings in the last few weeks and wanted to mention that I do NOT block the shooting information on my images because I want students and readers to be able to view that information.
So, anytime you want to know what lens I was using or what camera settings I was using, all you have to do is:
1. Double-click on the image you want to view info. for.
2. Copy the URL provided for that image.
3. Go to Jeffrey's EXIF viewer.
4. Paste the URL into the box that says "Image URL."
5. Click on the button that says "View image at URL" and it will pull up all of the info. you need (and a whole bunch of info. you'll never need too.)
Most of the info. you'll need can be found in the first box that says "Basic Image Information." For example, the information below corresponds with the photo I posted of Annie and my aunt and tells you that I was shooting with a Nikon D700 and an 85mm f1.4 lens and that my camera settings were f1.4, 1/125th of a second and ISO 640. It also tells you that I was shooting in Manual Mode and my exposure was set -1 darker than my cameras recommended exposure. It also goes on to share details about my camera to subject distance and my depth of field in the 'focus' section, telling you that I was 2.7m (almost 9 ft.) away from my subjects and based on that distance (along with my aperture of f1.4 and the focal length of my lens which was 85mm) that my depth of field (how much of my image could be in focus) was about 8cm (just over 3 inches).
Hope that's helpful to some of you.
