I took this picture the opposite day, and I’m pretty proud of the way it turned out. I’ve been actually having fun with pictures in latest months, so I figured I’d share any bike-related experiments with you all.
Additionally, biking downtown is a lot enjoyable. I do know the 2nd Ave bike lane is previous information at this level, however it’s such an ideal a part of our metropolis. It’s additionally a reminder of the form of safety-focused adjustments we will make to our streets when the superb engineers at SDOT have full political assist from Metropolis Corridor. If protected bike lanes like these can work in congested downtown Seattle, they will work wherever.
As for the picture, I’m nonetheless studying what’s potential with “trendy” cameras and enhancing software program after greater than a decade of solely having my cellphone’s digital camera (I put “trendy” in quotes as a result of I purchased a used Sony A6000 from 2014 and am repurposing lenses from my Nineteen Seventies Canon movie digital camera). You continue to can’t beat a cellphone digital camera when it comes to practicality, however I’ve been attempting to convey my different digital camera with me extra usually.
This picture took a very long time to get, and my technique was humorous and maybe not one of the best. I attempted to make use of the yellow plastic put up as a tripod after which use the timer operate to take a motion-blurred picture as somebody biked by. Focus is a tiny bit delicate as a result of I feel the plastic put up moved within the wind ever so barely. It additionally would have been loads simpler to time the pictures if I had a shutter distant. As a substitute I needed to attempt to estimate when somebody was 10 seconds away.
