As most people know already, I carry a camera with me everywhere. You never know when you are going to capture a neat shot and that's part of the fun in life for me. So last night at a gallery event I captured a bunch of images and when reviewing them I thought I'd share two and see what folks think of a mess-up and a good grab.
The color shot is a good lesson in what not to do. Even if pressed up against a wall - try not to shoot a group with an ultra-wideangle lens. This was shot around 18mm and it's just not right. Anyone else distracted by the "look"? Ok the matching purples on each end help - but otherwise - no good!
The B&W image is what excites me. To get a nice quick shot that gives a bit more expression and isn't posed. So remember not all your images have to be of people looking at you and saying cheese.
