Photography has always been an interest of mine. In college, while taking an intro Photography course I realized that I was seeing the world around me through a rectangle, even without my camera. The bug had bitten and bitten hard.

I later enrolled in Brooks Institute of Photography where I graduated with honors. Then I took over the photo and art dept of the Ojai Valley News where I won several State and one National Award for the paper.

I currently run my freelance business, RCVisual, from Denver with my wife Stephanie, daughter Kiya and son Keenan.

Equipment:

Nikon D700 24-70mm Nikkor f/1.4 50mm Prime Nikkor SB-800 and SB-600 (and a bunch of other toys, too!)

comment Blurry Pictures. Lighting fine.
Rather than using your daughter as a subject I would use some objects that don't move. Otherwise you may be contending with the "wiggle" factor. Bottle don't move...kids do. And remember, f4 is pretty shallow for a group. I tend to hang around f/8 or higher (depending on the size of the group). You may have just gotten lucky on that one frame and nailed your focus. Just had a thought, what kind of focus were you using? If you weren't using spot than your camera may have been confused and settled on a focal point behind your subjects.

Are you trying to compile multiple images? If so, can you provide your settings?

comment Is it possible to shoot moving water in HDR?
That was gonna be my suggestion. Utilizing RAW files you could create a file set that provides images from a larger range of exposures.
