All I can say is Wow!
My suggestion would be to hire an actual photographer to train you.
Short of that, try the Green A+ intellegent auto mode.

Re: Canon EOS 6D Settings

I think there was misunderstanding... i am photographer as well but only for commercial product photography.
Im asking not for photography skills. Im asking best shot with Canon 6D camera. I know how its exact photoshoot settings ( my setting was ISO 400 - f/20 - 1.3 sec) and i tried with ISO 100 as well.

But issue is, photographs are not too much clear. There is grain. I need to know what is wrong on my settings? You got my point TTMartin?

Summary: all i need to know device settings not for iso, shutter speed etc settings...

I hope it was clear and you can answer me more kind...

Thanks

f/20 is too small of an aperture. At that aperture diffraction starts to come into play and reduces the overall sharpness of the photo. I would see if f/11 gives you enough depth of field. And f/16 should be your absolute smallest aperture.

 

Grain really shouldn't have been an issue at those ISOs. Looking at digital photos on a computer leads to over zooming or 'pixel peeping'. My suggestion would be to get some prints made from those photos so you can evaluate them more realistically.

I see..Thank you for your suggestion...

Last question, if grain is still there is on print document, is problem on camera or lens?

Do you have any idea?

 

Thanks

What post processing software are you using?

 

Or are you using straight out of the camera JPGs?

 

If you are using JPGs what picture style are you using?

 

Grain doesn't really indicate a problem with either the camera or the lens, it is more a function of post process (in camera or on a computer). Oversharpening can create 'grain'.

It would help folks help you if you post an image that shows the issue you are concerned about.

The key to avid adding 'grain' in Lightroom, is to avoid sharpening smooth areas.

 

No sharpening (400% view)

 

 

Over sharpening (400% view)

 

 

One way to avoid this is to apply a heavy sharpening mask in Lightroom so you don't sharpen even areas.

 

Sharpening mask set at 70

 

 By pressing and holding the 'ALT' key, while moving the slider you can see what is being masked.

 

Black areas will not be sharpened.

 

Smooth unsharpened bokeh.

Re: Canon EOS 6D Settings

 

Was the camera Handheld, on a tripod..?

 

Remember, the shutter speed should be at least equal to the focal length you are using for sharper images if handheld.

 

And ISO 400 on the 6d is nothing. I routinely shoot that or higher if I am inside and cannot use flash in order to get my shutter speed up fast enough to keep the images sharp. Noise can be handeled in LR or PS. Motion blur cannot

 

and TTMartin is right, F/20 is overkill for interior...

 

I wonder if you didnt try and oversharpen to compensate for motion blur...?

Shoot on a tripod. You have non-moving subjects (furniture) so you can do as long an exposure as you need if the camera is on a tripod. ISO 400 should not be too high at all.

The suggestion on sharpening mask is right on.

Also avoid having to boost exposure. Get exposure right in camera because boosting it in post processing adds grain/noise. Also avoid having to crop, which reduces fine detail and magnifies grain/noise. Frame it tight enough that you don't need to crop.
