Friends of mine let me take pictures of their little guy Micah this weekend. He’s got the greatest hair on the planet and was really calm and a good subject to take pictures of. I wanted to include this picture because it was the first one of my camera after I noticed something.
The pictures I was taking were all looking a little smokey, like fuzzy. I remembered reading something about UV filters causing some problems so I took it off and this is just about what came out of my camera. This bright and super sharp photo! I think I might have added a touch of contrast, but not much. I was able to fix (in Lightroom3) the soft ones that had the filter in place, but it was a bit more work. So anyone that thinks there photos are looking not as sharp as they should, try taking the filter off.
Stay tuned for more Micah pictures. It was a perfect day weather wise. Cloudy but still bright and so just really good natural lighting.
