Before I went shooting with an old school friend of mine, I went scouting with my brother and mother in-law.
While shooting some test shots I snapped my bros awesomeness!
Some details of this shot:
It was taken on the 14th of February 2013 at 5:48 PM.
The sun was not setting just yet. As you can see from the above picture, I still had a good 40 minutes to go.
But I wasn't there to for that. I'm sharing this image to show what the sun looked like when I shot these pictures. The sun is of course behind m brother and he was sitting behind a ancient Roman grave. This last gave me a little less haze in the shot, but enough rim light to work with.
Focal length was 84mm using a Tamron 28-300 (this is my favorite scouting lens as I don't need to drag around bags and cases). When I chose to shoot at 50 ISO during my first session of shots, I did not consider that (in AV mode) I would have reaches such a low shutter speed. Typical distraction mistake. But it is here where the magic happens for me sometimes. A random shot being a really good picture. And I really love this shot. And at 1/30th of a second isn't noticeable at all!
I shot in AWB to speed things up. I didn't want to waste time on white balance on scouting. The advantages of shooting in RAW format is that you can easily adjust it later.
Here are some other pictures!
Thanks random dog!
