It’s been a while.
A few months ago now (time flies!) I shot my first wedding. It was a favour for a friend, and the first time I have really used my camera “professionally”.
And, to cut a long story shot…I loved it. In another life I would have loved to be a wedding photographer. In the life I do have I am unsure how to proceed. I could say more, and as I type this I really wish I would have put my thoughts into writing at the time. I have probably forgotten much of what I though I would want to remember.
But regardless of lessons learned and swiftly forgotten, after that fairly intense and enjoyable experience I just felt no interest in picking my camera up again. My camera mojo had left me.
I would love to snap another wedding/event/whatever…but taking my camera to Clent or some other place had no appeal whatsoever.
When you have had a pint of Guinness then settling for a glass of Carling just will not do.
And all that is irrelevant with regards to the MOON!
The moon was lovely and full last night (15.10.16), so I busted out my 1980’s heavy-duty tripod and remote shutter release…and snapped away.
I felt my mojo creeping back!
I love my 70-200L, but just get so little chance to use it. It worked a treat here though.
The images are only tweaked very slightly in Elements, apart from cropping and enlarging a bit they are essentially straight out of the camera (via RAW).
Not exactly unique shots, but I am pleased.
Thanks for looking!
