Hello GG Family,

I think this is my first actual legitimate post or inquiry on the forum, I've replied to several, but don't actually recall making a post myself, so here goes nothin' [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

I've been shooting with a Canon Digital Rebel 300 for about the last year or so, but I've noticed that with a lot of my people images, my shots don't seem to be very sharp. I really notice it in the fact that the overall picture seems a little soft, especially noticeable in the eyes. Generally I wind up sharpening the images up in PS to my liking, but I'd like to inquire as to whether or not anyone else has experienced this problem, and if so how do you correct it. Is there something in the camera settings that can be adjusted or is it just a problem with the Rebel itself ? I'd like to upgrade to the 20D, just that it's a bit out of my budget at this time, so I'm trying to do the best I can with what I've got . . . At times though, my images leave me wanting to go back to my trusty 35mm A-1 [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] Any advice would be greatly appreciated, I'm heading south of the border this weekend for a friend's wedding and I'd like to have some feedback that might help me capture better images with my Rebel . . . Thanks for listening and hopefully sharing too [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]



This is one I shot of Margo a while back using my A-1

For technical reasons, essentially ALL digital photos need sharpening. I have a higher-end digital -- Canon 20d, and it too needs sharpening.

Not sure Jimmy, I actually shot her back in Oct. '03 and I know she was just getting started back then. She's a total sweetheart and a lot of fun to work with, very professional. I've been wanting to make the opportunity to shoot with her again, especially after seeing some of her latest work on her site, just my work and family schedule haven't left much free time for myself if you know what I mean . . . Love your work sir, been a fan of your work for quite sometime [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [image]

Here's one more for your viewing pleasure [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

It's a digital camera thing. But when you move up to the 20D, you can use a custom parameter setting to add some sharpness that may be all you want.

What lens are you using?

That might have something to do with it as well??

And how old are you?? Near 35-40?

checked your diopter position lately?

Just a few other factors before we really say its all because you are shooting digital. Not that I disagree with any of the previous posts, just throwing additional possibilities.

I have a D-100 and almost always sharpen. But even a good film scan may require sharpening.


regards

Stu

Hey Stu,

Good ? ? ?'s Here's my replies . . . First: Canon 18-55 mm 3.5, I just bought a 50mm 1.8, but haven't tried using it much yet. Second: I'm 37, and actually my vision is the best it's ever been in over 25 years, I just had laser surgery this past year and love it [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] Haven't checked my diopter for the same reason. Good ?'s though, just wanted to be sure there wasn't anything wrong w/ my camera itself. I had an instructor tell me once, you know you need to get your eyes checked when your pictures start to look fuzzy [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] Good advice in my opinion . . .

Thanks
