Today, I took some 17 photos in and around the company. And I don’t have a single good one. Why?
Well maybe first because I tried something new. I did mostly people shots, and most of those were candids. But I wasn’t always close enough, or I got the lighting wrong, or I shot from the hip and missed it, anyway – I failed big time.
Another reason could be that my own expectations are much higher than they used to be. I see a missed shot, and I can still learn from it. Ming Thein has just written an article about perfection and content, with lots of very very good examples – well worth a read if you’re interested in photography.
Just a few minutes ago, I took a photo of Zuleikha reading. I let down the shutters on the window about 2/3 of their way, and with ISO 100 and an aperture of f=2.0, that gave me 1/10th of a second. Not perfect but just hand-holdable with the good in-body stabilization of Olympus.
Like I said: that image isn’t perfect. But it’s by far the best one I took today, and I like it a lot:
Thanks for viewing and reading.
