Lots of Pictures

July 7, 2009

This past weekend was a long holiday weekend in the U.S. I attended several events and shot a cumulative total of 731 pictures this weekend. (Amazingly, despite it being Independence Day, I did not shot a single frame of fireworks!)

The 731 figure is amazing, even to me, primarily because of my shooting style. Anyone who has gone out shooting with me knows that I am not a machine gunner. I seldom use burst mode and never just snap away indiscriminately. On the whole, I tend to be fairly deliberate in my composing and shooting.

Lately I’ve also been stretching myself beyond my usual comfort zone. Although I have favored longer lenses for decades, I’ve been forcing myself to shoot more wide angle recently. To my own surprise and delight, I’ve begun developing a bit of fondness and appreciation for wide angle. It may never replace telephoto as my preferred shooting style, but it’s good to branch out and broaden one’s horizons.
