Photography question.

I have a Canon Rebel XS so it's a decent camera, I think? Anyways, my pictures are coming out blurry and out of focus BUT only in some areas of the picture so this is not due to camera shake. Do you know why this is happening and what I can do to prevent it? Thank you so much!!

  • Could be your depth of field?
    Maybe shutter speed?
    Maybe wasn't focused right?

    Was the lens hit?
    I have a lens that I can't use due to falling while taking pics and I hit the lens.

  • I would go to the the Canon website and look it up there. There is usually a help section you can look there.

    Or, do you still have the user's manual? It may be listed there in the book. Good luck.

  • I've checked the website and the manual, no help there. Thank you, though.

  • Yeah I posted the pic. I haven't edited it yet. We were also in a very shaded area with sun coming through so the conditions were not ideal. I'm more worried about the blurriness and out of focus, but i don't think many would notice it. This is our first family picture and I really want to use it for the wall, but idk...A friend took the picture and she is not a professional.

  • Try cleaning your lens. You may have water spots or something else on it. I have also seen where the film on the lens peals and may have some uneven spots. If you aren't sure take it to a camera shop or best buy and have them look at it for you.
