These are Oscar’s fun selfies as he plays with some string while joining the Kitties Blue for their hop.
As I was taking the photos I did my best to make sure I had sharp fur and it worked because of my settings. They are not the usual ‘how to shoot
I used a high ISO as I was curious to see the difference it might make, and you can see how high from the note under each photograph. Daytime is usually 100/200 ISO to give you an idea of how I pushed my luck!
Sharp fur tips:
- Increase your shutter speed, which I didn’t do this time!
- Check your focus. On autofocus (which is good) you need to let your camera focus before you take a picture.
- Explore manual focus (if you have a DSLR).
- Try to shoot in good light.
As you can see I had to go for a higher ISO because it was a gloomy day but I have a low f-stop so the picture is sharp and Oscar looks pretty good.
Using a wide lens aperture (such as f/1.4 or 1.8) when shooting gives you a shallow depth of field, which means you can be more selective with your focus.Canva
