Scouting with my brother and my mother in-law

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.


How the sun behaved on that dayLorenzo Enea Leonardi

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!

I look like a BOUSS. As for the second picture, it might just be my homicidal instinct showing through my retina. Comunque daje belle le foto, ma le altre?

I was on my way to bed and just saw your comment.

You are right! They do look funny. Well as my dear friend Benjamin from Berlin always tells me:
Never post a picture as soon as you finished editing it. Wait a day or two then get back to it and see if it is postable.

Well I guess I forgot to wait...

good night!
