Walk…slowly and carry a little camera

The biggest problem most amateurs have is what do I shoot?

Well this weekend in Hamilton there’s an air show. You will find tons of stuff to shoot there. Most of it won’t be in the air because most of us don’t own 600mm lenses which are sort of “the” lens to have at air shows. You will be amazed how small airplanes look in photos shot with anything less. But you will be pleased with how good an airplane sitting on the tarmac can look through even a modest wide angle lens.

Everything is in bloom. And I often shoot images of flowers just for the shear joy of it and the images make for great background images on my monitors.

So it’s mid June already. Get out and shoot. Oh yeah, the big secret is walk slowly – really slowly and use your eyes before you use your camera. Keep it simple. These shots were taken with an Olympus E-PL2 as JPGs and edited in IPhoto. Doesn’t get simpler than that.
