Photo-a-Day (Wednesday, 2nd October, 2013)
Civil War Re-Enactment
I cant make me mind up whether I like todays photo or yesterdays photo best.
Its nearly the same photo
I thought it was still Tuesday, when I saw this pic again...why is it on twice?...only three guns have gone off.
Hahaha - so that's why David was lying on the floor at the side of me :)
I love the low angle!
Yes Dave Oy, and with his camera in his hand. You know it dosen't matter what make of camera you use today, they all take the same good quality pics.
Lol, the chances of catching the same two guns going off when things are happening that fast must be small.
Two-one. Target men with glass fronted black boxes. Drop fifty .Right thirty
Two very different cameras - the results - I don't thing there is much in it!
David, the camera Canon PowerShot SX240 HS has a mode 'High-speed Burst HQ' to capture 'the moment'. Of course I don't know if it was used in the case. Here is some advertising blurb about the camera:-
In High-speed Burst HQ mode the PowerShot SX240 HS can shoot up to 10 full resolution images with a speed of 10.3 shots per second, so whether you’re shooting sports events or everyday life in motion you will never miss a moment of the action.
David, in my opinion (for what its worth) this one is much better than yesterdays. Yesterdays looks too colourful (doctored) even.
There are too many Davids. I'm the one who took the photo and that's my comment at 09:15 :)
Thanks Oy. Being able to get down low is one of the things I like about using a screen for composition. Of coarse I'd have been struggling had we not been in the shade.
Thanks Garry. I enjoy using my little SX240 but I am saving up for something a bit faster and with better dynamic range. In high contrast scenes like this one I have to deliberately underexpose the shot to save the highlights then bring up the shadows later in my editor on my PC.
Neil, I didn't use the High-speed Burst mode for this shot. I used the Continuous Shooting drive mode which gives something like 2 frames per second for as long as I need it. The High-speed Burst mode takes a while for the camera to write the the 10 shots to the memory card so if I'd have started shooting to early I may not have had a chance to try again.
Really trying to confuse us "oldies"
