Not a lot of time for editing as I was setting up my new editing rig. So I went to the wheel house which is flowers and I can quickly edit them. Tried out the macro on the Sony RX100M3 and pleased with the results. Will require more testing but good enough to quickly knock out some photos. Enjoy.
This was on the water taxi back from Coronado Island. While it was sunny out, the camera metered on the dark area. The Sony RX100M3 has a different way of spot metering then my Olympus cameras so there is a learning curve. Still, I liked how it came out.
The way the sky is swirling and causes the land elements to be silhouetted. The light coming in from the left just adds to the drama of the image.
This was shot from Coronado Island which is a view of San Diego I have never seen before. I really liked how the buildings were reflecting off the water. I didn’t use the usual landscape format to give the image a sense of length. I was shooting is 3×2 just for a bit of change up.
To get the details out of the image I did another composite or about 8 total images. I am discovering that prefer doing a composite because I finally get the level of detail I want. With memory cards being cheap and setting a camera to continuous you can easily create composite images. With a bit of trial and error you can figure out what works and what doesn’t.
This is just one of those street photography shots you got with because everything lined up. I was just going to shoot the seafood cart and the interesting building. Instead I saw the man walking down the hill and just waited for him to get centered on the crosswalk. It all lined up and very happy with the image. Hope you enjoy it.
So wraps up the birds from the Tampa Bay Aquarium. I hope you enjoyed the series. This is my first time shooting birds or wildlife. It’s not something that I find all that interesting photographically speaking. I had the opportunity so I took it. It was a bit of a challenge to edit the images because I’m used to buildings, landscapes, and people. So I had to step back a bit and let the images stand unaltered except for some standard workflow tweaks I do.
Hope you enjoyed my attempt at nature photography.
