Reading the Leaves
I shot this to prove I wasn’t insane. I have been having massive problems with my Canon 5DMKII. To prove my sanity I loaded my 85mm on an ancient 400D that I got last year in Thailand for a song and just randomly shot crap on the way and back from the gym. There is a tree on my estates that I am forced to park under by the condo association shades my car. So with a branch hanging in front of me I focused the 85mm and snapped this. Green was boring and really didn’t bring out the leaf lines so black and white it was and a border just for giggles.
As for the Canon 5DMKII. Turns out said problem was with the viewfinder not being in focus which is obviously a gear issue and not the photographer being a complete idiot and never thinking to check that. Did I mention I prefer electronic and not optical viewfinders? It could not be the camera operators fault for being forced to use such ancient technology.
