I seem to have been attached to a camera all weekend... which has been good, but a bit stretching, because so many of the situations I was in were anything BUT "ideal" lighting, etc. This is just a share... there are tons of photos on Flickr (follow the links) if you want more, but I wanted to share that I am kind of proud of myself for dealing with a lot of tricky situations and managing to get some decent shots. For me, that's a big step... I never used to be able to get anything decent in bad circumstances, and I feel like I'm getting more comfortable at figuring out tricky situations now. So, here goes my share!
On Saturday, I shot some photos at a local farmer's market, for use on their web site. Not a big deal, and a totally unpaid gig (as it should be, I had no clue what I was doing!), but my friend who was doing it with me couldn't go till almost midday and the day was soooo bright and difficult to shoot in. My favourite from that experience, just for capturing the 'experience' of the interchanges between vendors and customers, etc., is this one:
And finally, we went to the fair, and I could not resist taking photos of the Peking Acrobats, but was going anywhere from ISO 3200 - 6400, depending on the stage lighting, and was across the stadium from the action. But still, some cool shots!
I have some more to share, but I'm saving a few for the CC group thread.
