Don't Try This At Home


Nikon D70 @ mm, 1/160 sec, f/6.3, ISO 200
Previous · Current · Next

So, I was sitting in traffic just before the Kingston Bridge. My D70 was riding shotgun, so I thought I might be able to get an interesting shot of the queues of traffic. But before I knew it the traffic cleared and I was suddenly driving along as normal, steering with my right hand and holding my cam with my left. It certainly makes it a challenge changing gears. Even more difficult is trying to hold the camera steady and compose a shot. I'm quite amazed actually that this shot came out exactly the way I imagined it.

Again, I've been a little slow in updating this, but I've got a few good shots coming up :)

John,

I've also been experimenting with this shot and have found myself in similar perils.

I went out for a late night drive in Las Vegas (in Nevada) and was all ready to take a spectacular night shot of the strip, when lone behold, the lights changed. My poor camera got the shot but promptly fell two to three feet into a bucket of change, keys and old receipts.

I later found that, in San Francisc (in California), the shot was better taken on a shorter delay.

Excuse the dirty windows,

Drew.

photography... it's a dangerous hobby isn't it?

Love the first shot Drew, and the sense of movement from the blurred nearby lights.

So what were you really doing, driving down the strip late at night?

I have no comment, other than the fact James was also there.
