‘last week, I went to a getMETAsmart event put on by The Stock Artists Alliance at Seattle Pacific Univ. If your photography of any value – any kind of value… you need to know this stuff. The presentation was excellent. I’m changing some things I’m doing and will be adding more…
ad hoc quid pro quo so little time so much to know…
and on my ferry ride home aboard the WA State Ferry Kitsap, I recorded this as well as many others. That boat has a strange vibration to it different than the others I noticed it when the camera was at my eye and me rising up slightly on my toes to dampen most of the inherent vibration transferred through the deck… actually exchanging vibration for muscle motion… (and depending on how much coffee and time on the feet… no alcohol involved but it might have helped steady or not) and it also seems to move through the water differently… it’s flow, I mean… (or it may have been someone that steers differently)… </tangent>
Seattle spring night from the ferry Kitsap enroute to Bremerton
Camera Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II lens 24mm exposure 1/4 sec @ f/4 ISO 3200
key things here are the very slow for hand held camera at age 61 62 on a moving ferry and it’s compensation of using an image stabilized lens and very wide (for full frame sensor) lens…. I also rose up on the balls of my feet and leaned against a bulkhead (nautical name for ‘wall").
Because I was using such a wide angle lens my position wasn’t nearly as far as it appears in the image. I was close enough that I was looking up at the buildings. You can see the slight tilting of the tall buildings due to perspective distortion from pointing the camera upward.
