Am trying to force myself to use the 18-55mm kit lens which came with my D60. I also have a 55-200mm lens which I like much better (probably because I get better results), but I am trying to use the 18-55mm too. We just got back from vacation and in looking at the photos I took with the 18-55 I am disappointed. Maybe I am asking the lens to do something of which it is not capable. I wanted a photo of my husband on the right side of the frame with a riverboat and lake on the left (his right). I lined him up and used the right focal point. When I opened the photo up on the computer he was blurry -- not terribly, but obviously out of focus. I used Aperture mode (f/22) at 18mm. I believe I was in Single Point AF (I would have to check for sure as I am at work right now). It was a semi clear day and I was probably 4 feet away from him. Any suggestions?
