I’ve been going through my photos. I’ve far, far to many and if it were up to me I’d take far more photos. I’m waiting for a computer chip to put in my head where I can take pictures w/my mind.
You know that’s coming.
There will be an app for that.
Sometimes a great shot is about luck. And having a cybershot in your back pocket.
This one is just cute. Remy the flying Canadian Cat, sometimes a shot is about seizing the moment.
I like perspective shots. From above or below. Change of focus. Things of that nature.
On the drive home one afternoon, Jules looks up to see two moose in a small pond. I pulled over and with my 80-300 lens I start to shoot. Not wanting to spook the moose. Changing a setting or three while the moose dunked its head down to find the greens at the bottom of the shallow pond. Note: this was taken w/a film camera, not a digital.
The 1st photo I HDR’ed. My photos aren’t true HRD. Those are usually three shots, merged into 1, all with different shutter speeds and usually in RAW format. I don’t own a tripod (yet!) and I don’t have anything that works with RAW photos (yet!). Since, I’ve learned how to adjust my shutter speeds, etc to be able to “fake” a decent HDR shot.
This is a far better HDR rendering. Taking HRD photos on the run is, of course difficult. But this one, for a “fake” came out rather well.
As did this one.
Picture, however, don’t always have to be fancy. Or overly pretty. Pictures are meant to capture a moment in time for all eternity. A message. A moment. A thought.
A feeling of being together. Even in the chaos of renovations, in the relentlessness of life that always keeps moving. It doesn’t have to be taken with a 1000 dollar camera, sometimes a cell phone and a moment is all it takes.
