Canon 5D mk2

Use the camera more.

Going out.

Not been out taking images for 2 months, the last time was in the church yard, but on Thursday Martin and me went to Rotherham to the canal by some scrap yards, the sun was shining, big blue sky and a good walk.

We did that in the morning and to warm up as it was very cold, we went to the pub, a small village pub that sells Sam Smiths beer “My favourite” So a very productive day.


Practice.

I usually shoot fully manual on the Canon 5D mk2 I have, but watching some YouTube videos a lot of the top landscape photographers seem to use aperture priority, and let the camera sort out the shutter speed. 

So I had to give it go, I used to shoot the bikes back in the day! In manual or shutter priority, so you have control of the wheel movement and the blur of the background.

I did enjoy shooting like this, and was not using my tripod, so shooting faster then I normally do. I did get some interesting images nothing outstanding but just good! I think I can use about 6 or 7 for Getty out of 126, so my hit rate is not good “Need to get out more and practice”.

One of the better images. Still not sure if I like it!
