ANPW Day 2 – AM…September 25, 2008
Wow. It’s been a busy day! This morning, Martin Gisborne and I headed out to shoot Schwabacher Landing at sunrise. Martin is one of two Product Managers for Aperture and an accomplished photographer. His style, get in, get the shot and get out to MAKE more pictures. As I believed, the best part of the trip is understanding the way a true photo pro thinks about the assignment. It really separates the professional from the amateur. Alas, I’m in the latter group, but learning
After Schwabacher Landing, we decided to blow-off Moulton Row (too many people already there) and hunt for photos. We scouted a place for this evening’s astral photos before driving after a couple hot air balloons. We never did catch them, but ended up finding a bunch of Elk. Hand-holding a 300mm f2.8 with a 1.7 tele isn’t the easiest thing, but I did manage to capture this image:
Off to grab a bite to eat before heading out for more wildlife, sunset and astral shots. We’ll see!
