As summer comes to a close a few things come to mind, one of them is how much warmer it was on the south coast in France back in August when I was walking around in shorts and sandals.
I am soon going to celebrate an official full year of DSLR photography and in that year I’ve managed to switch from Canon 500D to Nikon D300 and then over to Canon 5D Mark II, and I will be staying with that camera for now.
Shooting is becoming more and more fun as I learn new tricks and study up. I’m reading up on lighting use right now which is quite interesting, but as is traditional with any photography gear… nothing comes cheap.
Well there is a good news with the shorter days which is earlier sunsets and not needing to stay up too late after a shoot. But as the temperature gets colder and colder, shooting after sundown is going to be more and more of a challenge. It reminds me of my Berlin photos from last year that I took at -15 celcius which was kind of rough.
I’m also trying out Lightroom 3, wow it’s really an upgrade. The noise reduction is great, Lens correction is amazing, finally these things can be done from within Lightroom. But I wonder if they signed a contract with the PC hardware manufacturers. Lightroom 3 is sloooooooow and I am seriously wondering if I’m going to get another PC or go back to Lightroom 2.
Well, fall comes before winter and that’s a great time for photos of trees and leaves!
