These were the shots that crushed me the most. I had loitered. I had been immensely patient. I had worked out shots between items on their stand. I then totally stuffed it. Shits me!!
No. 1 was F6.3, 1/15, 800, 171mm
No. 2 was F6.3, 1/15, 800, 171mm
No. 3 was F5.0, 1/30, 1600, 131mm
No. 4 was F6.3, 1/15, 800, 208mm
And I think the problem lies mainly in the distance I was shooting from given the conditions! A long lens is a trap. I should have been no further than say the full length of my shorter lens which is 55mm. I should have each photo at 1600 ISO to give me room to move for aperture and s/s. Then turn the aperture down as low as possible which is about F5.0 and yank the s/s up as quick as possible - 1/40 plus would probably have done it. And the cloudy WB makes it too orange.
They were a gorgeously down-to-earth couple with a business called Ritzy Bits. He was Rex that rhymes with ... She was more oz than you would credit by her dress sense. Very easy to talk with and gorgeous to look at, both of them.
