|Description ||Bedd Gorfal circle photographed very late in the day after a visit to Bryn Cader Faner, this was one of those ‘Just about time for one more before dark visits!’ and by this stage the light was extremely poor for photography, Tripodded at ISO400 plus a little brightening in Photoshop was needed to get this still somewhat grainy image.|
|You have coped with difficult lighting brilliantly. Photoshop is a great aid and the tripod even more so. I always advise people to carry one, but never take my own advice!|
|Got to admit that these days the tripod mostly stays in the car or at home, I enjoy the freedom of being able to wander carrying only a lightweight digicam. Tripod these days often means camera wedged on a convenient fencepost or rock and used the timer! Maybe digital has made a lot of us lazy, without the constraints of film costs & large memory cards I’m certainly a lot more careless in my photography – I take lots of shots and then delete the junk, rather than carefully set up shots as I used to & still do when using film. My advice to anyone would be to use a tripod for everything, a definite case of do as I say, not as I do! |
|Very true. The problem with taking lots of shots and deleting the junk is that they can all turn out to be junk without time taken to compose thoughtfully. I'm always impressed with the real old timers who staggered around with great heavy plate cameras. The image shown on the glass screen was large and so could be examined carefully before exposure and then just the one shot was needed. They didn't want to waste the precious and heavy glass negatives!|
