The Muffed Target #20

The Muffed Photo Meme is sponsored by Thom “Bite Me” Robinson, and can be found every Tuesday on his blog, Thom’s Place 4 Well, Whatever. Believe me, this meme really fits in his “well whatever” category:

Each Tuesday post a completely crazy, messed up photo — one you would normally delete. The subject matter isn’t important — did you take a picture of your thumb? The lens cap? The wrong half of great Aunt Betty? (Really, she usually has a head …) Or perhaps you’ve got a shot of your own nose hairs taken while you were trying to determine why the flash wasn’t working. Whatever your photo goof is, we want to see it!

So, let’s all expose our photo flubs. You show me yours and I’ll show you mine!

Note to self: When photographing a partridge quail in a pear spruce tree, if shooting through the living room window, turn off the flash.  That “white mist” is actually the glare of the flash off the window.

Grainy, yet under-exposed. I can’t find the correct light setting for my 10x macro lens. The 1x, 2x, & 4x lenses give me no trouble. The 10x lens does not record what I see through my view finder and I still don’t know why.  This shot was taken on a bright, sunny day and I was standing in full sunlight.  Obviously the 10x lens seriously blocks light intake.  Why?  And can I counter it short of getting spotlights, or are spotlights the answer?

This is why one should stand still when taking photos. I was in a hurry to capture the scene and snapped the shutter while I was walking. Luckily, I took two shots and I came to a complete stand still before snapping the shutter the second time. I will share that pic tomorrow in my apple picking post.
