Project 365: My Mundane Life - Day 15

by Sylvia Warren January. 15, 2018 326 views

More snow today and my office is closed because it's a national holiday. It's also a good day to practice with my 100-4oomm lens. I struggle using this lens, even on a tripod; the AF doesn't seem to work too well through glass so I switch to manual. The subjects seem in focus, but they still seem little soft when I download them. Is it me, the glass or both?

Thank you, Heike and Sigrid. 

I think I still have lots to learn about using this lens. I'm striving for the National Geographic quality without having to run it through post editing.

I agree with Sigrid, for me they are perfect. But when I made some bird photos a while ago through the glass, I had a similar  impression from them, like you mentioned about yours. Next day I opened the window (it was damned cold)  and made new photos. I was more satisfied with that ones, but it seems, I'm the only one, who really notice the difference

I like them as they are - clear shots and lovely portraits - but you seem to want something else. Maybe the problem is the lack of bright sunshine, which on the other hand can cause a lot of other problems?
