To all ye who want to paint with light ...

I should have started this blog many moons ago as I started experiencing the joys of rediscovering the art of photography. But as the saying goes - it's better late, than never!
So, here I am, in the hopes of recording what I learn as I progress from ignorance to enlightenment; about what my eyes can see that my camera can capture; and, what my mind imagines and my camera paints with its capabilities.

Please feel free to add any comments and share your wisdom (tips or tricks) that you have picked up along the way.

Day 298 - Photography Disaster

I was attending a business conference and took some photos there as well.  Needless to say, it turned out to be a nightmare trying to photograph the event in poor lighting.  I returned with quite a few really grainy shots as I had to shoot on ISO 800, wide open, and a shutter speed of not more than 1/30s in most cases.  If this isn't a recipe for disaster, then what is?  I was seriously out of my mind when I thought I could give this a shot.

I sneaked in these photos because I wanted to take a few shots that I could post here, rather than only taking shots of people that I didn't want to publish.

  1. why didn't you put your ISO up higher, why was it only at 800? Also when these situations happen to me I bring a lens that can open up really wide like a 1.4 or 2.8 (if its indoors and its a conference its obvious it might be poor lighting, you should of rented a lens for a day) then I can shoot at higher shutter. Sometimes when that happens you can also try your best and make the photos black and white if you want.
