Help with shooting hand held with H6D100c
Yesterday I did a photo shoot with a friend of mine at the Thean Hoi Temple in Kuala Lumpur. I took a total of ~200 pictures in many locations in and around the temple and 90% of those were hand held. I was using a Profoto B1 head with a Octibox as and when I thought I needed it and I think that is where I screwed up.
Out of the 200 plus pictures that I took 80% of them are not tak sharp that I think maybe comes from camera shake or using the lenses wide open.
So my thinking was shoot wide open to get nice bouquet and maximise the shutter speed, as you can see with the attached picture the bouquet is nice, colors are amazing but its not sharp, this was shot at ISO64 1/400 at f3.2 using my HC150n lens.
Ive shot many models using my Leica S007 hand held and the hit rate was about 80%, here I am seeing a 20% hit rate and most of those that were sharp were with the B1 head.
What are your thoughts on this, should I be using a tripod to help eliminate camera shake, and should I be bumping up the f stop to around 4 or 5.6 something
Any feedback would be much appreciated
And yes we are planning another shoot after CNY as her dress was not ironed prior to the shoot
