Just a quick post tonight. Thank you everyone for your well wishes. I feel a bit silly for being a sap last night, but also very loved reading all your comments. I think I have a little bug, and today my voice is fading a little, much to my friends’ amusement.
I like these colour / monochrome comparisons, so today I’m giving you a very simple photograph but I found it quite striking. It was taken the same day as my Angry Bird photo. I was experimenting with my new 45mm f/1.8 lens (90mm equivalent) down at the local train tracks.
These are two different photos, taken closely together, both taken handheld, f/18, 1/800s at ISO640. I have this infuriating habit of forgetting to check ISO before heading outside. I’ve been doing a lot of indoor shoots lately and needed a higher ISO to cope with the lower light, but the train track shots were in bright Queensland sunlight, so I should have dialled it back to 200. I must start wearing a rubber band around my wrist as a reminder 🙂 Do you have any funny ways of reminding yourself of anything?
So take a look – colour or monochrome?
