Chicago Sky Line

Posted by Corey Brown June © 2009

Chicago the City of Wind. Chicago is a very beautiful city as long as you take a step back from the hustle and bustle. This is only a partial of a skyline shot that was done for a commercial sub shop. The final print will be close to 14 feet wide, as soon as it is hung I encourage you to check it out.

DRAMA

 while I was reading a article on Zone 10 written by Bob Whitmire called Learning not to be lazy I was thinking it is hard to learn real techniques.

Over the past year I have been trying to learn to be a skilled enough photographer to make it my profession and there is a lot of truth to Bob's article and it can really play against those of use who are trying to increase their photography skills. There is so much that I rely on with my camera that it is humbling. During this week I have been using a few of Ken's OM lenses. I had not realized how dependent I was on Auto Focus for my photography. I am so used to just half pressing the button and once I here the beep see the light I know it is good I take the shot. With a Manual Focus lens well there is just a little more to this. I have really had to think more on my shots not just the focus but the aperture is also manual when using OM lenses with the E3 body. So I can not set the camera in this mode or that and spin a dial here or there for quick and easy shooting.  So I think it is good for any body and every body to know the fundamentals and realize why people have pushed the technology to the level at where it is and be able to use your equipment with out the technology. So next time before you turn your ISO up and while you are using AF with Image stabilization just think, Can I get this shot with out all of this?   You can read Bob’s article here.

 

Thanks for stopping by
