Nubble












Well, what I can say, I needed to bring in here the "Nubble" light in full view including the sea. It was an interesting evening, the photographer that you see in the picture, on the left, in the rocks, had a tripod and was trying to get his best shot. I was probably a couple of hundreds of feet behind him and I also needed to make the shot. So, taking him out of the frame was not an option, since I would ruin the picture, my shot was done handheld.

What a beautiful place with or without the photographer. :) It took me years before I invested in a tripod because it slows me down. I prefer not to take one with me unless I'm doing night shooting.

Olá Adrian!
Vejo que aprecia a natureza tanto quanto eu!
Também escreve mt bem português!
Comecei por abrir o blog lavoresfl e depois no seguimento desse lembrei-me de iniciar-me na fotografia.
Confesso que não sou entendida nesta área, mas estou a começar a entusiasmar-me.
Ontem adquiri uma nova camera (canon Reflex EOs450D)vamos ver se tiro partido dela.
Suas fotos são mt belas!
Já esteve em Portugal?
Tenho mt gosto em mostrar-lhe o meu Algarve.

The same as you Karen, usually I don't like to be slowed down. I move around often looking for different angles. I have a tripod but indeed I only carry it in rare situations. The trick is to hold that camera as steady as you can, I can shoot handheld a 30 speed and sometimes lower, you get used to it.

Gosto do tom dramático desta foto, dado pela luminosidade de fim de dia.

Também acho que o tripé, tirando nas situações de fotos nocturnas e nas longas exposições, atrapalha muito os nossos movimentos. Às vezes opto pelo uso de um monopé.

Esta foto apresenta cores muito fortes. Ficou muito boa. Gosto.

O outro fotógrafo - o que está lá mais à frente do lado esquerdo, também é capaz de ter tirado fotos com esta qualidade.

Adrian LaRoque said...

Verdade Helena, o monopé é algo que estou a pensar em compar.

Adrian LaRoque said...

Claro que tirou Joao, eu e ele tivemos uma pequena conversa momentos antes desta foto.

The photographer in the picture had a good conversation with me moments before this shot. I believe that his photos were great too.

Hi Adrian.
A really nice place to photograph: sea, island, green grass... the contrast of the colours gives it a unique touch.
Liked it very much and agree that the guy in the pic must hav some good photos too...
By the way, what's the mean of those little adds in the side of your blog?
See you
Marco
