Give her a few years and that Med School will pay itself off in no time!
My congratulations to her - That's quite an accomplishment to be
accepted in-and-of itself
The buildings are more colorful there in Romania than I had imagined....Great framing on the shots though - I especially like the multi-colored doors
in the second image...Maybe a tighter crop would have helped set off the doors as the clear subject, like this:
Yeah - I hate it when a car or some other man-made object gets in the way of a shot....grrrr - Again though, sometimes a good crop can make it
I rotated the image, giving me the maximum amount of space to keep both the guys to the left and the car in-frame, and whacked off the rest....Sure
the horizon is a bit wonky, but it feels a little less cluttered now....
Saturday my best friend got married - What a friggin night that was! They had three "official" wedding photographers there, so I left my camera in
the bag until the reception - That's when all the fun starts anyways!
Me and a friend drove them to Jacksonville Airport after
the reception....Didn't get there until like 5:00 AM - For those who haven't driven
that stretch of road before, I can sum it up as the flattest and most boring 3 hours of Florida you'll ever experience...
At any rate - I've been attempting to regain some kind of normal sleeping schedule these past few days with no luck whatsoever....Touching up the
photos has been keeping me up just as late!
I encountered a few problems when I was going around taking photos....One of my biggest mistakes was not recognizing the need for new batteries for my
flash - After about 5 or 6 botched shots, I finally snapped-to and figured it out, but some of the images taken prior to that suffered as a
My second mistake of the night - My camera was set to shutter-priority mode, and I foolishly set it to 1/30th sec on my 50mm f/1.8 under very
low light, which resulted in a lot of poorly focused shots......Lesson learned here is that I can never trust my auto-focus under
low-lighting conditions, and that I need to bracket my shots more often to find a good shutter speed before I set off snapping my way through the
At any rate - That's a long introduction to a few of the shots I came away with:
There's the groom, with the white vest....
Good example of a combination of both my dying flash batteries and my slow shutter speed....It was a great shot too, but it's a big thumbs down...
Trainwreck! What can I say - We have fun! Here was my driving buddy to Jacksonville, chowing down on the feast they had...
I’ve got another wedding coming up this Saturday, so I’m making sure I get these kinks worked out…I can’t screw this one up, seeing as how
I’m getting paid this time!
