Hey guys..this is a typical photo that I shoot and the setting is always pretty much the same..indoors with low light(warm cove lighting or mood light)..somehow I'm not that satisfied with the sharpness of the photo..colors and exposure I know can be adjusting in post processing..that I'll be learning..anyway here is the photo and the settings I use..
Canon 550D with kit lens(photo shot at 18mm Focal)
Tv Mode at 1/30
Aperture as dictated by camera is f3.5
ISO is at 400
External Flash used at M mode 1/32 bounced off the ceiling.
If you were shooting this..what setting will you use to get the best photo? Obviously I'm not aiming for studio standard but I think many of you will agree this photo is not that well taken! Which part of my setting is not optimal?
Any comments and suggestions is sincerely appreciated to help me learn to take better photos! TIA!
