Its a view from the road up the hill from where I live, and it looks out across a plane of land that stretches from Frodsham, across the River Mersey and onto the Wirral.
On route though, I stopped to try and get a shot of Helsby Hill, and it was a sharp reminder of how little I know about my new camera, and how to use it.
I also took a couple of shots of the wind turbines in the distance, or at least tried to.
I do not profess to know if they are good or not, but I wanted an all purpose lens, and one for longer range, and from what I’ve read they seemed good enough for me.
These shots I took with the 70-300mm lens, and played with various settings:
Then I switched to the 18-55mm lense, and I think got better results for what I was trying to capture.
I appologize for sharing some really poop photographs here with you, but as I have always said through this challenge, I will be open and honest with my progression. At the moment, its a backward step to hopefully go further forward.
I didnt come this far, to only come this far………..
Learnings – I assumed a long range shot would need a zoom lens, I think I’ve learned today that it’s not always the case, and the lens needs to fit the frame of the shot, not just the distance. No doubt there is a word for that, but I’ve no idea what it is! Or maybe I just don’t know how to use the zoom lens correctly yet, time will tell I’m sure.
