Twenty20 Celebrity cricket match

Filed under: Available light,Focal length,Panorama,Shutters Inc — Bruce Williams @ 22:34

Tonight, Cath, Max and I went to the Twenty20 Celebrity cricket match at the Sydney Cricket Ground, which was held as a fundraiser for victims of the Victorian bushfires.
This is a panorama I shot.
For those who are interested, it was 7 RAW images, shot in portrait mode at approximately 40mm focal length (even though I could have zoomed out to 18mm, the longer focal length reduces the perspective distortion).

Shutters Inc – episode 117

This week, Shelton and business partner, Glynn Lavender took a model out to some ruins for a bridal shoot with a difference.
Shelton also recommends that we ALL go and watch this video.
Also, the Victorian bushfires, and what some very generous local photographers (like Richard Annable) are doing to help out.
Shelton, in the process of learning the hard way, talks about the importance of backing up your digital images to another location… preferably a web-based solution like Carbonite.
Bruce answers a listener e-mail regarding the “flash-to-subject distance formula”… and gets it wrong!
Plus, if your camera’s automatic metering modes (aperture priority, shutter priority, etc) suddenly failed, could you survive having to shoot in manual mode?
