After 6 weeks of suffering Polymyalgia Rheumatica I finally had an afternoon where I was confident enough to go out and do some photography. Went to Bushy Park and got some fairly decent afternoon light and got some ducks and deer. I’ll try and do some processing tonight but feel knackered at the moment but just happy to have got outside.
Quick edit from ipad. Taken with the 50mm stm on Canon 6D. Thought the lens was soft but realised I was too used to shooting mirror less and was moving during the exposure as the initial mirror slap was telling my brain the shutter had opened and shut! Now I'm holding still for longer I'm getting better results. Who'd have thunk I'd need to readjust going back?!
Tried shooting plasma Balls today.
After reviewing all the shots I wish I'd had one of my old 50mm primes with me to get away with some faster shutter speeds, I should have tried some much longer exposures too...
Yep, not bad for someone starting out, no blown highlights etc, seems well exposed. There's a little too much sky so I'd crop a little out. I initially didn't like the person on the hill upper left using their binoculars but then seeing the little hut farther on and 2 more people nearby also enjoying the view, it tells a story and so I think its a great shot.
