One of the inevitable auto focus fails that shows up in just about every single set. And for those of you wondering where I was shooting in January that was so green, no, I didn't take it this past month, just finally got around to editing the set.
One of those deliberately blurry shots that failed.
Blurry mess. The background blends into the leaves in the foreground too much, making for a distracting composition.
Another blurry mess with too many highlights. I could save a lot of the shot post-process, but it isn't worth the effort because the shot isn't very interesting.
I thought that the close up details here would be more interesting.
When I exported this out of Lightroom and into my outtakes folder, I titled it "don't even know," which is about right. The subject isn't interesting, the angle doesn't work, and the fluorescent light distracts from anything interesting that is there (which really isn't much so it doesn't even matter).
Another focus fail. Thankfully I did have some shots in this little set that turned out much better.
This shot wasn't a kitty-moving-and-blurring-the-shot fail, it was a human-not-using-manual-focus-properly fail.
Poor washed out kitty. I did get a shot that wasn't nearly as washed out, although the back lighting is still pretty harsh.
Don't be afraid to share your outtakes every once in a while. It makes everyone feel better.
