Woman in Red Heels (Pic of the Week)

3797

I’m resurrecting Pic of the Week for this, my first in an album called “Candids.” I’ve taken to taking my camera into restaurants and stores and snapping pictures where I normally would not. I read of a technique where the photographer casually lets his or her arms hang down, holding the camera at or just below waist level. Without even looking at the screen, so as not to draw attention, the photographer then uses a thumb (usually his or her own) to depress the shutter button. (click the pic to enlarge)

Usually I strike out badly because there’s almost no composition involved and I haven’t figured out the angles yet. This time, however, I was sitting and placed my camera on the chair next to me, using the self-timer to keep it sharp without cranking up the ISO.

  2. How do you get that sharp image at 1/3sec and 105 mm? You got that anti shake gizmo?

  3. Pops – The last sentence of this post reads, “This time, however, I was sitting and placed my camera on the chair next to me, using the self-timer to keep it sharp without cranking up the ISO.”
