Day 7: Strolling downstream with the glacial runoff. With a lot of time on the trail and most of it downhill, we took advantage of plenty photogenic scenes in the Andes. Armed with my ultra-wide angle lens (10mm-24mm), landscapes became an experimental focus. Balancing light, shuttle speed, ISO and f-stop pushed me to play excessively in the manual setting. With frequent opportunities to shoot moving water, I began to play with slower shutter speeds. The challenge became making amazing scenes look cool; however, I don’t think I’m quite skilled enough, but a few examples found their way to tumblr. Thoughts? Tips? Critiques? I now have a tripod, so “get a tripod” has already been addressed.
