The swarm theme needed to show movement and multiples of something.
Rather than focusing on anything specific, the landscape theme was about the whole.
Swarm – snow dragon
Playing with the camera at night and on manual while Hitoshi tossed snow in the air was fantastic fun. The continuous shutter setting meant that his movement could almost be frame by frame and one photo stood out.
This photo helped me see what graininess looks like after trying to fix underexposure. From the little reading I’ve done, graininess comes from more than just ISO. Perhaps I can replicate this concept and get a sharper photo. The details are f/3.5 1/125 ISO 1000. Any ideas?
And a swarm of stationary trees. I imagine them coming to life when no one is there to see it.
Landscape – dusk
Playtime again! This time, evening was my interest and nemesis. Perhaps the camera sensor was sympathizing with my frozen fingers by refusing to cooperate. (Yes, it was probably more me.) Several settings resulted in a symphony of overexposed photos.
It’s time to review the basics of the photography trinity (ISO, aperture and shutter speed) before trying landscapes again.
What is your photography nemesis? Do you have suggestions to help me make these photos better?
