If it’s worth having, it’s worth fighting for.

And gosh, conquering the mystery of slow shutter speed photography is proving a fight. If only as a record for myself, I have to post yesterday’s effort. Any and all constructive criticism and advice gratefully received – don’t be scared of hurting my feelings… I’m already sobbing anyway.


Speed and Motion

With a view to moving forward, I’ve bitten the bullet and joined a camera club. Last night, there was, after all the images of motor racing, a very interesting talk on taking photos of moving things. The best thing about it is, today for the first time, I was playing not just with shutter speed and aperture but…. ISO also. A first for me 🙂 I didn’t have racing cars so I thought I’d pick on the ever-present seagulls. I think I should have pushed the shutter speed up even higher though, as my subjects are still not as clear as I think I could have got them.
