Janet and I had a really great day today. The weather was comfortable, overcast and a little gray but very comfortable. We got out of the house for a few hours and I got to do something I greatly enjoyed, talk with Jan about photography and post processing for a couple of hours. Went out to Janet's favorite restaurant, Pappas Seafood and then stopped downtown for a couple of handheld shots of the City Christmas Tree.
I wanted to share this photo of Janet at Pappas. It is a little soft because the lighting was very low and this is hand held. However the biggest problem is that Janet had no concept of the term hold still. She is constantly moving so I shoot rapid fire and hope she pauses at least momentarily.
I also shot two new models today. Neither of which I did real well but they were very interesting and maybe I will get another shot at it on a brighter day. These were shot with Jan's 105mm macro but even at 400ISO were shot wide open so the DOF is extremely shallow and on most shots there was some camera movement or subject movement. These two are about the best of each one.
Tomorrow is supposed to be very cold and probably raining so I am glad we got the opportunity to get out today when we could really enjoy it.
