A Very Regretful Error...

2 posts in this topic

I have always loved photography, not from a technical point for I am the last guy on the planet who is technical regarding photographic equiptment.

Recently I decided to upgrade my photography equipment by purchasing some quality Canon lenses....I have no regrets!

However, because of my inexperience, I still make many mistakes while out in the field shooting subjects. These next two pic's is a fine example of how one can get caught regretably off guard.

The thunderstorms that passed through my neck-of-the-woods two days ago were a photographers dream. For rarely have I ever witnessed such a brillantly colored, all naturally colored storm cell that passed right over my residence. Yes I did manage to capture some very eye pleasing pic's. However I also lost some of the best opportunities due to camera shake.

If only I had grabbed my monopod or tripod when I walked out my backdoor and began shooting the sky!

In this first pic, the ambient light was sufficiant enough to still be able to hand hold the camera to get the shots. You must take into account that I was shooting these conditons using a slow shutter speed.

This pic came out sharp and clear...

However, as the sun continued to set, the ambient light was also deminishing thus making it very difficult to avoid camera shake under the settings I was shooting under at the time. Adding to my dilemma was the fact that in order to attempt this pic, I had to run approximately 200 yards to my duck pond.

By the time I reached the pond, my 53 year old lungs were starving for oxigen! Sadly there was no way in which I could get the shot and avoid camera shake, which resulted in lousy result!

I will never allow such a mistake to ever kill the moment again!

So please save yourselves a lot of disappointment by always carry your pods!

    • He was talking about updating and upgrading our nuclear weapons,  which aren't related to the middle east.    Getting the 53 brigade combat teams up to readiness standards also will cost money.  
    • How much of that $6 trillion do you suppose is military spending?  I’d venture to guess a large amount of it.  Now while he talks about spending so much in the middle east and ignoring issues at home he apparently wants to add an additional $54 billion to the defense budget which will more than likely be funneled back into the middle eat one bomb at a time.   He might make sense in what he says from time to time but then his actions seem immediately contradict his words. Should we believe the words or the actions more?
    •  Decriminalization only makes small possession and usage kinda illegal.    Laws still have to be upheld.   Mexican cartels still would not be allowed to ship tons of cocaine over the boarder. Doctor still can't write false scripts.  Gangs still cannot run drug dens Staus quo     Just push for complete legalization. Regulate through the government. Lower the cost of product.     Cross your fingers you don't get a Russian heroine epidemic.    Freedom restored.      
    • "We spend $6 trillion in the Middle East, and we have potholes all over our highways and our roads"

      Every now and then it is hard to argue with Trump, the positives aren't many but he is not wrong about everything.
    •     Also, how do you explain the growth rate of U.S. incarcerations since Nixon began the War on Drugs in 1971?   You don't think there is big money involved in prisons?       http://fox6now.com/2017/02/25/private-prison-stocks-up-100-since-president-trumps-win/          
    • DALLAS TRADES BENN to Montreal !!!!!!   Jordie   for a 4th round pick and some no-name....Jordie was bad and playing worse lately
    •   He won't ask anyone's advice - that's a big part of the problem.  But judging by his actions and words, he fully intends to return to the criminalization/prison approach.  You know, the method that was a complete failure in the past.   Why wouldn't pharma be worried about heroin and meth?  They make versions of both, so it is direct competition.  There is also real life evidence to suggest that marijuana can be used as a replacement for opioids for pain, so that is a reason for them to be opposed to the legalization of weed, also.  Do you have a better explanation as to why Trump wants to step up enforcement of federal laws against legal purveyors of marijuana according to their state law, rather than simply changing the FDA/DEA classification?                   They would be comparable, except they have spent close to a trillion dollars on the War on Drugs since Nixon signed it into law,      
    •   Is this speculation or do you have a source for this information?    
    • Without media, you will only get what news from the party in control that they wish to give you. With no freedom of the press, no matter what they say, you will eventually lose more than the 1rst. amendment.  Let's see what happens when the President addresses Congress and if it's a rally speech or a substance speech with policy? If it's just rah-rah??, with the corrupt  media,----make up your own mind.  
    • If you ever want to feel like a puny human, go mess with those big boys. Nice pics!
