And of course the Sony version will cost the same as Nikanon, even though the lens will not have the built-in stabilization . . . .
I composed a shot of the signs and the street, and just as I pressed the shutter, this little boy stepped in to the frame. I never saw him until he was in the frame . . . we had agreed that we wouldn't photograph anyone in this neighborhood without their permission, for safety's sake. No one noticed.
This young woman allowed me to take her picture twice. The first shot was out of focus. We met her a little further down the street and I asked again. She struck a post, smiled, and that was it.
That unoccupied shoe was "liberated" from a store by a homeless man known to our instructor. We met him near the beginning of our workshop, and then again at the end, pictured here.
Our instructor said "Your job is to get that man's portrait!"
Do you have any idea how hard it is to shoot a portrait of a total stranger in the middle of a Chicago crosswalk with about 5 seconds notice? I just walked by, knelt down, and snapped, right in the middle of the street. He was opposing me in the crosswalk.
Stop saying price point. Just say price.
Not that impressed. Can't even read the switch labels or anything on the displays. Given the imaging equipment available in 2011 to even the novice, this lake of resolution seems strange.
Oh those things are mean. Nice shot.
