Photo Blog...

I've decided that I probably don't have the time or talent to maintain two blogs of "enouragement..." So I'm going to stick to posting 'spiritual tidbits' on Salt & Light, and try to update this blog with just plain photos. I don't know how often I'll get around to updating, but I'll try and do it more frequently than I have been!!! :-)

ISO 1600 - f/4.0 - 1/30 - 41mm -- (handheld with IS)

P.S. Who can tell me what technical aspect of this photo is off?

  • Cool shot! I'm glad you've decided not to stop posting you pictures. I always enjoy seeing your work and gleaning nuggets of info from it!

    Technical aspect - hmmmm, the only thing that stuck out to me was the high ISO you used. I don't completely understand ISO yet, but that drastic of a number seems unnecessary with this type of photo, and greatly increases the noise. Please tell me if I'm way off....I'm just dipping my toes into this vast world of photography and have so much to learn!

  • P.S. That neat that you can get that clear of a shot handholding 1/30 - I guess it's the difference between having IS and none....I think it's strange that my Canon left that feature out....

  • Good point! This was not the exact aspect that I was referring to, but you did make a good observation. The high ISO was to compensate for the terribly low light that was in our granary. Although IS helps a lot, my lense is not really that fast, (f/4, rather than, say f/2.8) so I have to resort to upping the ISO. You can see how slow the shutter had to be in order to get that exposure, so really ISO 1600 was a must.

    Thanks for the thoughts!

  • Thinking about it further, maybe 'technical aspect' is the wrong way to put the question... Maybe I'll just say "what's wrong with the photo?" ;-)

  • You know, I was thinking about my answer later that evening, and realized that I didn't really take the low lighting minus flash into consideration....I guess it didn't jump out at me right away b/c I haven't messed much yet with changing the ISO. Now that I'm starting to understand it a bit more, though, that should change! :-)

    As far as problems with the photo - at this point I don't notice any.....I do hope you enlighten us with your perfectionist photographers eye! I wish I had a bit more of that! :-) In it's time though, I'm sure I'll develop a bit more sensitivity!

  • Well, it appears that you are the only commenter... What I was referring to was the poor angle that I shot the photo from. If you are looking at it, it appears that the wall is falling in on you. I should have shot it from a slightly lower angle, to prevent the appearance of a crooked wall in comparison to the plates.
    Anyway, that was what I was referring to.

  • Interesting...you know, composition actually crossed my mind, but I totally forget to analyze it from background angles. Thanks for the tip!
