I noticed a week ago that my pictures were all starting to come out grainy and super weird looking. Like they are all out of focus and an example of another thing is you can’t see people’s eyes. Like the shadows are on full force. What is going on. I haven’t changed my settings, and I made sure nothing got bumped. I took pictures tonight for practice to see if it was fixed and I took them during sun set and still so grainy. I have had my camera a year and I have never had this issue. I feel like it all started after I got a off camera flash I used once for a event a couple weeks ago. The brand is a goddex. Did it changed something I don’t know about or can’t find in my camera?
Hi and welcome to the forum:
Sorry to learn you are having issues.
My first suggestion would be to do a reset of the camera to default settings. That is the least intrusive thing that could sort out some kind of setting.
I wasn’t using the flash on any of them. I just tried it a couple weeks ago as I bought one and was practicing. This was around 6:00 and I had the best lightning. And some people’s eyes just look completely black. I don’t have another lens to try but I think I’m going to rent one and see if that’s the issue.
You're right. The picture you provided is definitely out of focus. Since this is your only lens, I would definitely try a different lens first.
What lens is it, by the way? This may a dumb question, but are you sure the manual focus switch on the side of the lens is pushed to the AF position?
Adding a flash should not change your focusing abilities.
