Today I took some shots and I came back with very unexpected results. I've posted samples to show what I saw. No editing here (except on on the face of course)
I was inside, and the light was fluorescent.
I have a Nikon D5000 with a 40mm f/2.8 lens,
UV filter attached.
Standard shooting mode (not burst)
AF-A focus mode
Single point AF area
The shots were taken in quick succession, focusing once and then quickly firing off 3 or 4 shots.
My thought is that it had something to do with fluorescent lighting, rapid shooting while not in burst mode, and the camera's inability to meter correctly. Of course, that's just my feeling. I could not recreate this effect at home (I think because of the incandescent lighting) I want to go back to this space and recreate them again, but I cant' get back there for a week.
Any thoughts on what happened? I've never seen this happen before, even though I've shot in this space many times in the last. Granted, I don't remember specifically the prior circumstances and settings. These were shocking enough to me to make me think something had gone wrong with my camera.
