Hi. I just started on this photography hobby and have been snapping around for about 2 weeks. My gear is as follows:
1. Canon 20D
2. 17-40mm L f4
3. 85mm f1.8
I have been trying to shoot those sharp looking photos but somehow I still cannot get it right. Quite frustrating. Not sure if my techniques are correct. I tried both Auto Focus and Manual Focus, but the photos are not as sharp as I wanted them to be.
You can view some of my casual shots here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/27201863@N00/
Nothing fanciful, just trying out the camera to get the best sharpness. When the file is viewed at 100%, it just become blurred. People shots are not sharp also (though not uploaded here). I did not use any sharpening tool in the camera setting (set to the middle).
Could I ask for help? Is it my technique/setting which is wrong or is there something wrong with the camera focusing system?
Thanks in advance.
