Let's see ... we were shivering the first day or two there, the models were shivering, the light was low, etc. Tell ya the truth, I'm surprised at how many nice images we DID get!

I think Dave may have it. As an outsider looking in, I see heavy overcast, cold temps and long lenses. A recipe for camera movement.

Did anyone use a tripod? If so I'd like to see their images.

I really enjoy the images you all come back with, especially the outtakes. I just wish I could make it to some of these workshops.

Thought I would offer up something someone told me back when there was no automatic anything on a camera. Back when you had to learn to operate a camera and a handheld light meter (not photoshop), before . . . well, I digress.


When shooting a handheld 35mm camera, the focal length of the lens is the denominator in the slowest shutter speed at which you can expect to get images that are not blurred. For example, with your 50mm lens, your slowest safe shutter speed was 1/60; with your 135mm, you could probably get away with 1/125th of a second.

[I'm an old fossil. I picked up a camera the day after they picked the color for dirt, back when we all shot fixed focus lenses because they were sharp and the zooms that were available just made mush. I still say nothing beats a medium or large format 'chrome! Glad I learned on old manual film equipment, which most would now call crap.]

Your not the only one it seems. Much of what I took the first day is out of focus. I just chocked it up to the weather [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
Not much you can do when your freezing and the models are freezing as well.
