It's a mom thing, but I love my daughter's feet! Rather than put up several photos at various aperture settings, I thought I'd just make sure that I was very aware of different aperture possibilities this week, and then use the one I liked best. This photo was taken using my 35mm 2.0 lens, which I feel that I don't really understand it's capabilities well. I do like that it seems to be very useful in low light situations. This was shot in manual mode, f/3.5; exp 1/4; using a tripod, ISO 400; wb incandescent light. I removed the color cast because it looked too blue. I also ran an urban acid action on it, added a low opacity vignette and a frame.
With this lens, I have to focus manually, and am not sure if that means that if the process is the same as using autofocus. That is, if I focus on, say, my daughter's feet, can I then recompose and take the picture, with her feet having the sharpest focus?
Again, thank you to everyone who commented yesterday on my photos! Your comments made me feel much better about it!
