so many crazy things about that photo. i don't know where to start.
Does your lens have vibration reduction on it? If so, make sure it is turned off. Use a remote, and make sure your camera strap isnt slapping in the wind.It's over by the Maverick stop on the Blue line. A little park called Lo Presti Park. Took me 45 minutes to get there from BU last night, and I nearly got crushed by traffic from the Sox game on the way haha
Anyway, yeah I'd love to meet up and shoot. The photos I'm getting look great on my camera, and I'm confident in my shots when I pack up, but my skyline shots never seem to come out as sharp as I think they do. I'm shooting with a D7000 and that shot was with my 35mm 1.8 I believe. I think it was at f5.6 and 13 second shutter, iso 200.
Any pointers besides "get better glass?" lol and if you were to suggest better glass for a shot like this, what would it be? My 50 1.8 produced similar shots...would the 50 1.4 be that much better?
Just a guess, but by the nature of the way it works, vibration reduction or image stabilization can probably actually cause the reverse when used in combination with a tripod, sense I doubt the lens knows you aren't using the camera handheld. So the mechanism is active while on the tripod, causing ever so slight vibration in the camera.this may be a stupid question, but why turn it off?
