And first foul up
A Gorillapod is much easier to carry and use than I had anticipated but getting great results can be tricky. For example, posing in the wrong part of the shot is very easy. I should have picked a marker. Retaking the shot was out as the camera’s battery was finished off by this shot.
With a wide angle lens, it doesn’t take much distance to get really tiny. Also, gradients look much less impressive in pictures than they feel in real life.
Will it ever go well?
Allowing the camera to meter off the sky means a lot of work in the editing software. One day, I’ll get it right and share the result.
