My son Peregrine and his girlfriend America. I spent the morning setting up this arbor that blew over 4 times! :P Next time I'll figure out how to set it up inside and use lights!

Some of them were..... I don't know what is up with my auto focus... I tried using the face detection setting figuring it would do a better job than the regular setting...but I think that made it slower or something. It was about a 50/50 split on OOF and perfectly focused :P

What focus mode are you using? I"m not talking about manual/auto setting on the lens... but what setting in camera? Full auto, single point? Best to use single point focus and get it right on one of their eyes. If you go full auto, the camera doesn't know if you want to focus on the boy, the girl, the boy's hand instead of the eyes, etc. Cameras often focus on the closest object... which is rarely the eyes.

AI focus, center point, usually....but I changed it to the Facial recognition mode thinking I'd miss fewer shots. That's the only thing I changed and I think I paid for it :( But, since all anyone is going to do is look at these online or as 4x6s.... I'm trying not to beat myself up over it. With my son's schedule that day I had 20 mins to shoot and I just didn't have time to double check things. I spent the whole morning testing everything out and it was good.... I don't know why I messed with it. :P

It didn't help that my youngest thought it was funny to keep running through shots :P I think I was partly too hurried and not taking enough time.

Shooting through the Live View screen results in REALLY slow focusing. Don't ever use it unless you're doing landscapes.

I don't see how you didn't know it was in Live Mode, since in Live Mode the mirror flips up and the viewfinder goes black. You would have had to use the LCD screen to compose the shot.

Sounds like you may do a reshoot. If so move the arbor back closer to the field to eliminate the trees growing out of their heads. You will be much happier with the results I believe. :)

No, I did not use it in live mode...viewfinder only...but I'm thinking the mode I chose in the menu was meant for live mode. I don't know....going to go back to the way I used to do things... if it isn't broke...don't fix it..right? :P

I wish I could.... but no way I'm going to get those kids to get all dressed up again :P My son's schedule is so busy I rarely even get to see him anymore :P Like I said.... it was for me and the memories... I can live with it :P And that actually was the best background I could find here in my yard.... if I had more time to plan I would have set it up somewhere completely different.... but like I said, only had like 20 mins to shoot.... and he never could have found the time to drive them to a location away from home :(
