The post below will work but if you want to try something else there is a product called "Mista Brite" when used on spectacles you can hold them over steam without any steaming up, I must point out that I haven't used this on a camera lens but it does work on my bins and the inside of my crash helmet.

I find if leave your camera out of its case it will solve this. Let the lens glass be at the same temperature as outside.

Anyone got any tips to stop the lens misting up during long exposures? Using the hood and letting the camera aclimatize first doesn't seem to help

Lower the F number the shallower the depth of field, i.e. In your case F2.7 more background blur. Try and keep your background as far away as possible, there is another way in wich involves zooming in, but not so great for self takes.

Thanks for the reply. I try to find a balance between getting a full picture but not what you decribe. the pics look rediculous with extended arms and a tiny head.

There a local lad to me Craig Mortimer (with Gardner), check his pictures out on his Facebook page if you get some spare time. I loathe the bloke but he takes a cracking self take, I'm trying to achieve something similar to those.

I'm out Monday night fishing, So I'll have another play If I'm lucky enough to catch. I'll definately be playing with the ISO and other bits that have been advised. Sorry I am a novice at this, can I play with exposure compensation on my camera?

I'm working on the editing software, I have a copy of lightroom but need to change this laptop before I can start playing with it.

Do you know if you can get a remote for the Canon G11?

Thanks

Ben, the photo isn't bad but there are a lot of shadows. This can be rectified simply post editing using most editing software packages. These days most photos you see are edited. Shoot with JPEG for two reasons. One you can get more on your sd card and two the camera edits it slightly for you.

For bright days I agree use an ISO of around 200 but play with exposure compensation too. I shot both canon and Nikon and find this is more affective on Nikon but this will take away the brightness a little giving you more detail. Also try and get slightly closer to the camera - not to make a double figure carp look like a thirty but to fill the frame! Get a cheap shutter remote off eBay and practise with it too. Self timer is great but the shutter remote will make your life much easier!! Hope this helps!
I've just started using a remote shutter. It does make me laugh at my syndicate when people are putting the carp as close as possible then lieing about the weight!

A bit of fill-flash would improve things there.
When the sun is high in the sky, or when it's impractical to get it directly onto your face then a bit of fill-flash will get rid of those shadows.
Your flash isn't just for when it's dark out

Thanks for the reply. I'll definately start playing with the iso. The aperture only reaches f8 on the G11. From what I've read the G11 isn't the best of camera for the 'blurred background' look, I'm asuming because of the lower aperture available? I'm happy with the little blur on my pic though. I can't find anything in the manual on continuous focusing. I'm a beginner at most with photography, so I'm trying to learn when I can.
