Yesterday I had an extreme shooting. There was a thunderstorm. The camera's setting for the same scene changed from ISO 200 and 1/800 to ISO 1600 and 1/100 (f/5,6) in a few minutes. The equipment got wet. Here is a link to one of the last shots, taken with some water on the front element of lens. Well I wasn't expecting that strong rain...
P.S. I'm sorry for my English (you can't think much what you're talking in such weather conditions and when your not weather sealed camera is wet). ;)
On 20-22th May I was photographing birds with Boris Belchev in Kėdainiai and the locations around. However I had a pretty busy week and some images are still waiting for editing. So, a brief story...
The morning was beautiful, but not very good for bird photography.
However, in the evening I photographed one lapwing.
In the morning I made my best photo of the weekend - a roe deer. He was having a breakfast.
Of course, there are more images. Some of them you can see in the 'New Images' gallery, some still can only be found as raw files in my computer... But the summer vacation is soon and I will have more free time then.
Today the awarding ceremony of the students' photo contest "Akimirka mano seniūnijoje 2011" took place in Kaunas historical presidential palace. I have won the nomination "Už gamtos pajautimą" (for feeling the nature). I'm grateful to my fine arts teacher Linas Zizas, who had suggested to participate in this contest. Ačiū!
