Too often people I find purchase DSLR cameras and immediately dive into taking pictures. Of course, I'm a little guilty too, though prior to my first DLSR I spent months honing in my craft on 35mm film. The image to the left was captured on a Canon AE-1 created in 1975. During this time, Canon sold over 5 million and had a max shutter speed of 1/1000. At that time, that was considered fast. Honestly, for this image, it didn't need to be even near that measurement as it was just the right time of day. This image was captured while walking through The Audubon Zoo in New Orleans.
Another image captured on a Canon Rebel 35mm camera. I was driving past the old Sonny's driving range when I noticed lease signs being placed. I ran home and grabbed what was at the time one of two cameras. Both being 35mm. Here I exercised the sunny 16 rule and was able to capture a great swing and perhaps one of the very last. The driving range is now under way of becoming a new economic development. I have images of the remains of the golf ball that I'll share in time.
So, what have you noticed between these two images minus a little grain? They were both captured on cameras that didn't have a digital display or the ability to view the images in real time. They were both captured on 35 mm film using basic principles. These principles are that which I 'm looking to cover in upcoming articles, classes and workshops. Remember, you don't actually take a photograph, you create it. Until next time....
