Are you using autofocus (AF) on the camera? If so, perhaps the AF sensor is getting confused by the soft, subtle patterns on the animals fur and having difficulty locking in on a solid line or pattern. Thus, what the AF might then do is lock on something with a distinct pattern or lines that it can get a sharp fix on, such a small dark area of fur, a crack in the rock in the foreground, or perhaps the fence in the background. I've found that soft, subtle lines on something such as the animal's fur in the picture can make the AF go in and out repeatedly until if locks onto something... problem is whatever it locks onto may not be what you want to focus on. With regards to the animal in your picture, I usually click my camera's exposure meter to center-weighted, get an AF lock on the animals eyes for a sharp focus then center the animal within the frame and shoot. This is the way I take pictures of people... the rule of thumb I follow is that if you can get a person's eyes sharply focused then the quality of focus for the rest of the person's body will fall into place quite nicely in the picture... I apply the same rule with animals.i am travvy wrote:okay here is my example. this lil guy wasnt moving at all. image is under exposed. it looks alright but if you zoom in on it it seems to have a haze around it. maybe its just from the fur or i moved just a tiny bit, idk.
