Thank you for all your comments. I was thinking a tighter crop also but wasn't positive.

What do you guys think of this?

[quote=Kuzano]Another thing to consider, if I recall your post right.

If you received the 40D used from another owner, he/she may have changed a lot of settings.

You may want to read the manual and find out how to RESET the camera to default settings.

Hey ty for all your info.
I am comparing the 40d against a Rebel T1i. Which I believe is also an older model. I am going to bring the 40 D to a camera store today and see if they can tell me what's going on with it and also try to reset to factory settings. The previous owner took a lot of landscapes and I like it more for portraits.

Thanks! :) You'll learn.

BTW, your pro was shooting with a Nikon D4 and a 50mm f1.8 lens. His/her shot was taken with the aperture set at f2.0, which is how he or she blurred-out the background like that. I don't think you can manage that effect with either lens you're using.

Canon does make a nice 50mm f1.8 lens that you can get for less than $100. Now that I wouldn't mind spending money on.

Thanks for the info. I was wondering what kind of camera and lens she was using and didn't want to ask her.

From last month's exercise, a high-contrasty shot of people playing at the beach:

Nice Shot. I cant believe its the same camera. I cant get mine to do that.

IF the 40D is working right - it SHOULD perform better than the Rebel. The basic controls are similar - before you give up on it, have someone check out the 40D to see if there is a simple problem.

I'm going to have it checked. TY Merlin for all your help.

Here's a couple more with the Rebel. Just so much easier and clearer.

If there is any kind of filter screwed onto the front of the lens - take it OFF ......

Nothing on there.

Hey Everyone ! Thanks for all your suggestions and help. I borrowed a Canon Rebel and put my lens on it and the pictures came out super clear. I'll attach some. So I think its my camera. It wasn't set on a single focus point. I changed that, but the photo's with it still aren't the clarity that I am trying to achieve. I joined up with a local camera club. I got new editing software. I think the D40 might just be too much for me. I'm thinking about trading it in for a Rebel.

I had that lens and it did the same thing to me... not one of Tamron's best in my opinion.

If I were you I'd look for the Canon 18-55. It's Canon's typical kit lens but is very crisp and clean, you might try it.

Ty. I know someone that hasvone. I'm going to try it.

One of the things I notice is that Both images, yours and the pros are taken with the same angle of light from the sun. The difference is he added s soft flash to reduce the harsh shadows on her face.

Ty. I think I'm going to get a flash

It looks like a focus problem, with your F4, you only have inches to be with in focus. You might want to bring your f stop up to 8 or better. You also had your camera in Portrait mode which would explain the shallow depth or field. Put the camera in Auto, and see if you get better Pictures.

Bill Thank you again for all your help. Do you mean a focus problem with me or the camera? It could be me? I am very new to this. I think it was on Auto in portrait mode. Is there another auto setting that you mean?
