Day 27 – Disaster

October 17, 2009 Leave a comment


So todays image is from the disaster that was my return to landscape photography. I’m really disappointed with the pixels that came home with me. Ever have one of those days where it seems the day felt like a waste of time.

I really need to work on my landscape images. I think I might need to find a course, or ten.

Manual Reading

I’m loosing track of what pages I have read now. I’ve read my manual a few times at this stage. Today I read page 86, Selt-timer Operation. I use this when I forget to bring a cable release but that’s about the only time.

Professional Photographers Images Studied

I’ve slipped up today and didn’t study any photographers images. Probably to do with the junk I took today. Not nice to compare my results with a pros. I know I shouldn’t compare but that’s easier said than done.

Day 25 – Not a nice site

October 15, 2009 2 comments


So what happened today. Well this is a pathway in one of the parks that I try to go for a walk in during my lunch break if the weather allows. It’s a lovely park and I can’t believe that I have only discovered it in the past few months. I’ve always know it was there but never bothered to take a look.

Well this is one of the pathways back to the car and much and all as I like the pathway the sight of this section drops my mood as I know that in another few minutes the camera will have to be put away for a few hours while I go back to reality and sit at a desk wishing I was out with a camera. The things I do to pay for camera equipment!

I’m not happy with this image but that’s ok. The next time I’m there I’ll try and make an image I like.

Manual Reading

Arriving to work early this morning I quickly read the page on Live View Shooting. I regularly use this when I’m using my tripod. The only thing is I tend to leave it turned on for too long when I should just compose, switch it off and wait for the light.

Professional Photographers Images Studied

I’m having an early night tonight but will be studying the image the book “First Light – A landscape photographer’s art” by Joe Cornish. I’ve studied his images before but I think they are worth another look as I’m going to attempt a few landscape shots this weekend. It’s been ages since I got out to do a few landscapes so hopefully I’ll succeed.
