Once again an interruptive rain storm allowed me a photography opportunity I would otherwise not of had. A windy rainstorm swept it right when my evening DSLR Photography Lesson was to start, forcing its rescheduling. After the rain past I went out onto my back patio with the same gear setup I was to use to teach the lesson with:
- Nikkor AF-S 105mm VR micro f/2.8g macro lens
- Induro CT214 carbon fiber tripod with BDH2 ballhead
- Nikon MC-30 cable release
That lens choice would not have been my first thought to use for the Smacks Bayou long exposure landscape shot I previsioned, but I wanted to setup a challenge to see if I could make it work. Instead of feeling restricted, I felt liberated to be using a 105mm prime lens. I sat down in a chair, let the tripod hold the camera, and even rested the cable release on my lap as once I setup the shot, I let the gear do all the work! This is an extremely relaxing way to do photography.
