In this video, I 1) shoot some sunrise photos of Penarth Pier, 2) Discuss being a klutz with my photography gear, and 3) introduce the concept of a “Tax on Stupidity”
I took this back in 2007, with an Canon Rebel XT (350D) – an entry level DSLR, handheld and standing on the some scaffolding four storeys up in a pretty dangerous location. Things I didn’t know in 2007. 1) For landscape ALWAYS SHOOT WITH A TRIPOD. 2) ALWAYS SHOOT IN RAW. That said, I was pleased that I got a different composition than the standard picture of the Seattle skyline, as it was not taken in Kerry Park which is pretty standard and where I got this picture (on a tripod, with an ND filter, in RAW) some years later on a winter’s day.
Looking forward to the some more of these sunsets over my favourite beach.
During our visit to Washington, DC, we went downtown on a lovely warm sunny April morning. There was thousands of people out for the Cherry Blossom race – a running race that takes in much of the wonderful cherry blossom that is out this time of the year. It also brought out many photographers keen to get THE picture and couples with photographers getting “couples” pictures with blossom as their background.
I’m just back from a visit to Washington DC and surrounding areas. I took this on my first morning, entering the Metro system in DC for the first time.
I had fun shooting on the harbour in St Ives last night.
Well, yes, Trump Tower is in the background – But I like to focus on the beautiful building in the foreground. Classy, elegant, welcoming.
