photo outtakes

Welcome to another round up of photo outtakes! It's been a couple months since I posted outtakes, but that doesn't mean that I don't have any new ones. I think that it's really important to discuss the fact that I take a ton of photos to get a few gems. Also, while I keep improving my skills, I still make a lot of mistakes.

 Overexposed background on a shot that wasn't worth saving anyway.

Blurry ducks in direct sunlight.

So boring.

Everything is blurry.

The inevitable auto focus fail for a shot of a little sparrow.

Blurry tour guide at Miller because the shutter speed was way too slow. Her eyes look quite creepy.

First of a set of shots to capture the bee. I did get some much better ones.

The kid walked into the shot at the last second.

First shot of the band at this concert. Thankfully things got better from here.

I was trying to capture the crowd at this outdoor concert. I have several shots that all look exactly like this one. Epic fail.
Don't be afraid to share your outtakes every once in a while. It makes everyone feel better.


  1. I ended up with quite a few photo fails with my Alaska photos but thankfully the ones I wanted to turn out did! Phew!

  2. The sparrow isn't visible, but the background vegetation looks cool! What always amazes me about taking pictures is how it feels like I've taken thousands while I'm out, but once they're on my computer I say "that's all?"

  3. SO reassuring to know that even the pros have some blurry shots! I'll never match your good ones, though!


Your comments mean so much to me! Thank you for taking the time to leave your thoughts, questions, and feedback.
