Short post today as I have an early morning presentation to give. This is my favorite combine to photograph. I’ve already photographed it a couple of times this month (one of which I posted this week.) I had no intention of photographing it again or at least not this soon, but as I drove past it last evening on my way home it called out to me, “Come take my picture.” 🙂
Most mornings in the Fall, when I leave for work I head East, which means for a few blocks anyway I’m driving into the bright sunlight. One day, a couple of weeks ago, I noticed in my rear view mirror this red bench sitting up next to a tree and the way the morning sun reflected on it suggested that it might make a nice image.
The problem is I’m usually late when I get out of the house so I never have the time to photograph it. Yesterday when (late as usual) when I raised the garage door and saw the sunlight was soft and with a touch of orange mixed in I decided to photograph the bench. So I got my camera ready before backing out of the garage. I drove down to the end of the block to photograph the bench.
Well long story short it made me even later than I normally am. Even though the sun was shinning on it the first couple of images I took my shutter speed was too low so I had camera shake blur. So after I increased the ISO (not enough by the way) I got this image, which is okay but not what I wanted. Lesson learned don’t try to hurry the shot. If I can’t stop and do it justice then just don’t do it.
Enjoy your Friday. It means that tomorrow is a sleep in day!! Thanks for stopping by the blog. Be careful.
