and it has to be a bit of a toughie (mostly because I am never satisfied with my snaps) but enough of my whimpering: on with the show~!
You’ve seen this one before: I often try to capture the passage of time and this time I sort of succeeded. It was a huge cattle-truck combo slowing for the bend in the road outside Chub’s pub in Winton. He applied the anchors at the beginning (left end) of the red line and I got most of his slowing (I think).
An oldie (Olympus C740) but a favourite. Two white-eyes and only one apple. Brrr. Very early days, in fact one of my first dabbles in digital (does it show?). They finally stopped squabbling and shared … I was satisfied to have caught them at all, boom boom!
MOVING ON …
Not being much into the special effects side of things I couldn’t resist a dabble, and this one is better seen big screen. (For the technically minded, I pointed the camera and clicked the button … camera did the rest). I was satisfied.
I have yet to be satisfied with drops.
I see what I want, I know what I want, but I never seem to capture what I want. I know there’s all sorts of tweaks and fiddles available at the push of a button and the tweak of a menu, both pre and post capture but somehow I have this nagging feeling that to invoke such is ‘cheating’ …
Then I read that Ansel Adams on occasion sometimes spent four days or more closeted in his darkroom, tweaking, and on a single image (then I don’t feel so bad).
So back to the ol’ drawing board …
