A close up almost macro shot of my headphones for the computer . I did not get any oranges when I went shopping because the quality of them sucked and limes were on the menu for a marinade. I have tons of orange in books but I just did a book. My camera bag interior is orange but it is also a wreck right now so being lazy I skipped cleaning that for the shot. The headphones were todays winner winner chicken dinner.
Now it is not a bright day and being mid day the sun is rather high in the sky so I do not have the benifit of the neighbors house being used as a giant reflector (its a white house) . To give you an idea this is at iso-1600 and 0.4 sec shutter speed so I used a tripod. In the shot below I used the same tripod so why the blur?
Whenever I am on a tripod I use a two second delay in the shot right above this I did not use the 2 second delay . To be completely honest I am teribad at remembering to change my shutter function. Two second delay for tripod and either high or low speed burst mode when I am not on the tripod. So it is not uncommon for me to take the camera out to get a shot press the shutter to hear 2 seconds of beeping (an eternity when shooting a bird) or like today I was photographing lunch (a new to me recipe) and had the camera in a burst mode hense the blury photo. So if your photos are not quite as clear as you want them on the tripod try the two second delay feature in the drive mode.
Oh before I forget if you remember back a couple of days to Monday and the macro shot of the pasta you will remember I had some left over pasta dough. Well before it went bad in the fridge I decided to look and see what I had . Anchovies, Capers , Red Pepper Flakes, Garlic, and Parsley . So I made some Spaghetti Aglio e Olio and Anchovies.
This is why I had the camera in burst mode . I find that if my shutter speed is not where I want it then I will do a burst of 4 or 5 images and usually the 2nd or 3rd one will be acceptably sharp for what I want to do with it .
