Man city parade with my Oly 75-300mm
5

The Man City treble winners parade passed right by my flat yesterday, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to have a go with my newly acquired second EM5 body and 75-300 II lens.
I learnt a few things.

1) I'm no Getty images pro shooter

2) long telephoto lenses are mega fun

3) Noise is an issue when you set the shutter speed so high that you want to be sure to freeze any motion and you aren't a skilled enough snapper to know to back it off a bit when its obvious you don't actually need 1/800th of a second.  I panicked when the bus came and basically forgot what little I know about photography.

4) I had the long lens on one body and a 25mm f1.8 prime on the other.  I nearly strangled myself at one point when the straps got crossed over.  Don't do that in future
