Yesterday's post had a picture of something close using a zoom. This one is something far using a zoom - What the zoom was made for. This shot is of a flag in downtown Laconia. I was outside at the Mill and saw this flag a few blocks away. It was swaying back and forth in the wind. And I was getting jostled around myself. I really had to squeeze my elbows in tight to my body and held the camera tight against my eye to try and get a steady shot. My feet were firmly planted, and I was trying to time the shutter release with the sway of the flagpole.
Aperture: F/25 ; Exposure: 1/6s ; ISO-100
If you aren't using a tripod, you've got to do all the things I've listed above when using a zoom in these conditions. I think the slight movement and the flags whipping, works in this picture. What do you think?
Ok, it's late, must sleep...zzz
