Question about Cameras

Nikon D70S fuzzy and or grainy faces

I've been taking group photographs with the buisness logo or signs in the background. If they are taken inside, I go to the M on the dial and set at 125 and 6.3 while using the Nikon speedlight SB-800 on a TTL setting. These are the settings I use to get good quality class groups (school). Image quality is set to jpeg fine and Exposure compensation is set for -0.3. When I do an outside photo, I switch to auto and let the camera choose. I sometimes get a highlight msg on the LCD screen, but it is only on the brighter parts of the photo ( ie. sky) and very small regions. I'm trying to get photos for a magazine and wonder how I can get better quality?

What is best lens to photograph kids for headshots and 3/4 to full body shots with the nikon D90? the best lens for between $300-$500?


One of the best portrait lenses for the Nikon D90 is the Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 lens which can be found here: http://www.amazon.com/Nikon-50mm-Nikkor-Digital-Cameras/dp/B00005LEN4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1298955171&sr=8-1. At low f-stops the lens blurs the background beautifully and will really make the pictures of the kids pop. An added plus is that it can take great photographs in low-light situations. It only costs $125 as well.

When i shoot a group of people (20) the people on the ends are out of focus. I use a Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 18-200mm 1:3.5-5.6 G ED VR lens.


Edge to edge focus is an ongoing debate with every photographer that has run into it. A flat field of view is possible if you have deep pockets, a tilt shift lens, view camera in 4x5 or computer programing that will pull this out in post processing. I'm not trying to give you a smart answer but the amount of Barrel distortion and pin cushion effects on an 18mm wide angle lens will be difficult to correct. What I've done with huge groups to minimize the problem is use rows of people Kneeling, sitting and standing to minimize the effect and try to shot it loose then crop in. What this does is uses more of the center of the lens and also use F8 or F11

When taking night sport shots I don't think I have the right settings for clear photos they are coming out tooo blurry. Help!!! the photos are grainy also and dark. Could you send me the correct setting...


More likely you don't have enough light for clear photos. There's not too much you can do about this, since you probably can't add more light to the stadium or arena and the action is too far away for your flash.

Since the low light is going to force a rather slow shutter speed on you, you need to stabilize the camera. Use a tripod or monopod. That won't stop the athletes from blurring, but at least the setting will be sharper. Alternatively you can try panning with the motion, freezing the athlete and blurring the background.

A faster lens will get you a couple of additional stops, but as such lenses can cost $2000 and more, unless you're taking pictures for Sports Illustrated...

Lack of definition, blurriness.


Experiment with lowering the "exposure compensation" setting until you get the desired results. Also, don't forget to use a tripod.

I have Nikon Coolpix S4 digital camera. Lcd screen is ok as I can see very clearly all stored images and vedio. But when I want to take photograph the screen become too dem and stores very-very dem images....


It sounds like a problem with the lighting. Digital cameras like that aren't designed for ultra low light performance, so pictures will come out very dark and grainy. It's not a problem with the camera, it is merely a shortcoming.

Camera doesn't focus very well on dark subjects.


I think you have 2 problems at one time.
1 - I notice that your depth of field is very narrow, (your aperature is quite open) which hardly can focus the spot you want. try to increase the f/number like f/4 or above. the models face and there clothes toward your nikon D100 is almost the same distance, so they should be in the same focus range, but as I said witch big aperatures like f/2.8 of f/1.4 every inch count when it becames to focus.
2 - Set your camera in Single-focus (not Continous focus) en focus on the models face. then press halfway en keep it pressed. then you can compose a new position (still pressed halfway) and when the composition is good, then press it further to capture the photo.

The higher the ISO setting the more grain in the photo. Have you somehow set the ISO to say, 1600? http://www.nikondigitutor.com/eng/d70s/select.php?menu=1&sub=b11&num=12 Select ISO setting this way: http://www.nikondigitutor.com/eng/d70s/select.php?menu=1&sub=b05&num=10 Are you shooting in low-light situations (typically indoor)? Try shooting bright scenes and Auto mode, or manually set ISO to 100 or 200 and see if noise persists.
