Wow! Who knew what fun it would lead to by doing a “Pic of the week!” Several of my friends and family over on Facebook really enjoyed the idea and want to join in. For me personally, I’m enjoying the daily challenge of taking a photo and practicing different techniques. Michael is even getting in on the action by recommending photos to take!
So here it is, this week’s Pic! I call this “Flying a Night.” For those of you who have been following me for a while, you know that our condo has one of the most spectacular views of downtown, Atlanta. On a clear night you can see the planes lining up, landing and taking off.
For this photo I used a tri-pod and long exposure settings to accent the planes’ descending (the long streaks in the sky) and to bring out the Vinings Village lights in the foreground.
Field Settings: Time of night 7:45p.m.; Aperture f6/3; Time Value 30 seconds; Focal Length 32mm (I used my 24 – 105mm lens)
