Friday's Photo Tip - Keep Your Eyes Open
This post is a bit different from my other photo tips posts, but I think a quick reminder is necessary.
If you are anything like me when the camera is up to your eye - the rest of the world becomes non-existent.
I'm concentrating on the DOF, f-stop, shutter speed, and composition and am consumed in those actions.
I'm not noticing the bystander on the bench, or his buddy that is sneaking his way towards me.
I'm holding almost $2000 in camera equipment in my hands, and I am alone in the city, taking a walk while waiting for my husband to finish up with his appointment.
It's not a good idea to close out the rest of the world when behind the lens.
We are usually together most of the time when we are in the city, and he watches over things - something that I don't even have to think while shooting images.
Quick thinking kept me safe this time, but I think I much prefer the beasts in the woods to the beasts that inhabit the city.
