    DefaultAssignment 5 question

    I am having trouble getting the entire background in sharp focus. I used f 22 with a shutter speed of 1/125. I must have taken over 50 pictures and this is the best I could get. Oh, I am taking this through my kitchen window. Would that cause my problem?


    This on was taken with a f 2.8 and 1/4000. I never seem to have a problem blurring the background.

    Linda, these are fine. Sometimes, especially since you're shooting through the window, the background won't be extra sharp. Notice the two are different. One is relatively sharp and the other is very blurry. This is good.

    Yes, I can see the difference, but I just felt the one wasn't sharp enough. I couldn't see any detail in the pine. Thanks Monnie.

    Linda, one thing you can do. Try using a little lower AV, around f13-16. This will allow a faster SS while still keeping everything in focus. The faster SS might make the background sharper.
