It's been a little over a year since I joined and I learned a ton just by looking at the posts of the masters here. Needless to say, It reignited my passion for photography.
2010 was a very busy year, I started 6 threads here and I still have backlogs of captures that only now I'm able to view after months of lying dormant in my hard drive.
Travelling is a part of my job and I made a vow to bring my camera with me in all my travels, at least it gives me a reason to leave the comforts of my hotel room. I'm starting this thread for all those captures - day trips, business trips , family outings, places where I managed to squeeze in a few frames or any other picture I just feel like sharing. Not in any particular order. Just another excuse for me to work on those pixels one image at a time .
LIGHT MATTERS - The View Through My Lens
CABO SAN LUCAS- MEXICO
"POINT OF IMPACT"
The importance of a tripod.
Shooting landscapes when you're with a tour group is very difficult. During our Mexican cruise we scheduled stops to 6 cities in 7 days. Lugging my heavy tripod with me for the first 5 days and not once being able to use it was not fun . But there was simply no time to set up . On our final stop I decided to leave it , BIG MISTAKE, we were brought to this beautiful beach and with no tripod, I had to find a rock where I can prop my camera up for this shot ( you could see a portion of the rock on the right). This shot was extremely difficult to make, between composing the shot, timing the wave, hand holding the filter and keeping the camera steady (I felt like a contortionist) I was lucky to come up with this capture.
Tip : Get the STURDIEST tripod that you'll be WILLING to bring with you everywhere you go, you'll never know when you'll need it.
