Today was speech day...Had the Uniformed Groups parade under the hot sun,it was really tiring and it was my first time using a DSLR to shoot a event under the scorching sun.I was using the D60 with a 18-55mm kit lens.
I took pics closeup of the Uniformed Groups leaders,or whoever ranking they hold and i noticed,the background seems to be clear and the foreground seems to be blurred,this happens even when the background is not facing the sun.I was using auto focus
I am really pissed off by this.I think today was a utter failure for some of the pictures and i really need some help.So anybody know what settings or tips i can take to avoid a recurrence of this?As i am still quite a beginner,it is best to keep comments/help as simple to understand as possible.Thanks !
And if my fellow photographers from my sch are reading this,hi.
See the foreground blur?
Oh yes this is the raw image , so you guys can use the exif firefox extension to view the shooting info and give me better tips based on that info also
