Last weekend I showed you some images I had taken with the Canon EOS 60D and while all those photos were of the Supreme Court Building, I did take other photos. I thought I would take this opportunity to show some more. I am not going to go into much detail about using the camera, that is all still the same as last weekend. I should have more to tell you after I get back from my weekend away. I am looking forward to using the camera more.
This was the very first photo I took with the camera last weekend, and the first image that worked. The others I had tried didn’t really work out, I was using the wrong settings. I saw some people staring down this laneway and wanted to know what they were looking at. How strange is the pipe with the funny bend in it?
The ISO was turned all the way up for this image, and it is quite grainy, but it handled it rather well, don’t you think? I wish my D300s was this good when the ISO is all the way up.
I have seen other people doing images like this, and I do quite like them. I don’t think I want to go out and do a series of images like this, but it is fun to try it. I thought, while I am walking around with this camera, I should just photograph everything.
I quite like this composition, but the light was horrible. It was grey, overcast and very flat, which is what I think is really wrong with all the photos I took that day. I must try and go back another time when it isn’t so grey.
It is going to be interesting to see what the 60D will do in Harrietville. I bet you are looking forward to seeing how I go with it.
