This is for Everybody, Everywear, where the theme this month is yellow. Of course, I love love love yellow and have many bright yellow bits. For this, I decided to go with yellow accessories rather than actual bits of clothing, of which I have many, because I really wanted to wear this dress, which I dyed green the other day. In was green and brown and beigey before, see? I love the colour it’s turned out as!
These were the first outfit photos I took with the new SLR by the way. I wasn’t overly impressed with the whole body outfit ones I must say, I could definitely have taken better ones with the point and shoot, though I like the detail pictures. I left too many variables on the auto setting I think, and will have to teach myself a lot still.
Maybe some readers know about these things and can help me out with some sepcific questions?
1. Is it possible to change the format of the pictures? I don’t like this longer, narrower shape, and prefer the 3×4 I got with the point and shoot. I’ve been through the instruction manual and have googled and I can’t find anything!
2. Why is the autofocus going mad? When I was taking pictures of the earrings, it took two pictures with the earings in focus and then for no discernible reason switched to the background being in focus. I moved the earrings to the centre of the pictures, but nothing, I couldn’t get it to change back.
3. Is it possible for the background to be blurry for full body pictures without using the manual focus? It does it for the detail pictures as you can see, and I’m not doing anything differently!
If it makes any difference, it’s a canon 600d and I was shooting in P mode.
