Please don't close or abandon your thread. I perceive it to be of value, and I have some questions and recommendations.
Does it bother you that these things are around you? I presume they are in your home and always around you.
Do you live alone?
Do they communicate with you?
Do you feel outnumbered?
Did you ever think they might be "demons" or negative entities?
Can you please put the camera on a tripod and take photos with shorter exposure times? (Faster than 1/125 of a second.) I wish to see those photos.
You seem to be taking most of the posted shots in some rather harsh lighting conditions. Perhaps a flash would help "freeze the action" and also
make the pictures sharper (aside of focus).
If the flash "scares" these critters away, then turn it off, but you MUST keep the cam on a tripod. While in harsh lighting or at night-time open
the aperture as wide as possible, and keep the ISO low (100-400, and no higher) to avoid noise. Try different exposure times until you start getting
I like night-time (low-light) shots because they tax the photographer's abilities and as well as the camera's abilities too. Your
"Galaxy-Far-Far-Away" phot is evidence that you know a lot about photography. Enough for me to say that the earlier pictures posted should have been
in focus and without movement. Your "birds on the water" scene is in focus and does not have movement in it. (Fast shutter speed, and good focus)
I presume you are using auto-focus on the camera. AF is not perfect and has problems when there is little or low lighting. Can you switch the camera
to manual focus and set it to infinity? Then take some shots on a tripod of that forest that you say is 1.5 miles from you. No camera movement and
correct focusing while taking each picture is crucial in examining the forest. Try to create a panoramic photo (like NASA does with the rovers) by
using the tripod and taking multiple photos with the camera moving (in between shots) from left to right or right to left so the photo's can be
"stiched' together into a big picture.
Please try uploading those photos. If you do not know how to stich the photos together, that is fine. I can do it for you.
Please post whatever new shots are made using the above recommendations.
