How we capture, 2017-03-23

pasjrwoctx/ March 23, 2017/ 2nd Shot Photography

Photography is supposed to capture life, moments, space and emotions. As well as convey a story at times. Our approach is often different than other photographers. In the way we see the world, compose, capture, process and present the scene in which we have captured. Life and nature is not perfect. It is full of blurred lines, colors that can both pop and be rather dull. Life can be noisy and rough as well as soft and smooth.

At times it is bright and crisp other times life can be dark and fuzzy. Photography draws a lot of correlation from life. 2nd Shot Photography believes that every photo speaks for its self. There is no right way to simply take a picture. Because pictures are not what we are about. What we try to do is capture what we see in the most natural way possible.

Often leading to our creative processing and editing to flourish. One photo may look like the “ideal crisp cover shot” while the next may appear to be an artistic rendition of the moment in time we captured. Never do we set out to create the perfect shot. As no shot is perfect to everyone. We set out to create photographs that speak on their own. Often leaving all the little imperfections that remind us that it is of real life. While others may want to be creatively altered. When you select 2nd Shot Photography, your selecting a photographer that understands life. That is not afraid of staying natural, while being creative sometimes breaking barriers of normal.

The following photo is a great representation of our work, while on a walk this morning. I was just looking around and enjoying nature. As fast as I saw, the only shot whether great, good, ok, bad or crap. Either I shot, or forgot. I shot this from about 1500ft using my OM-D E-M5 and the M.Zuiko Digital ED 75-300mm f/4.8-6.7 II with the following settings, f/8.0 1/4000s ISO1600 300mm hand held as I was walking. I shoot full raw full manual mode all the time., the focus mode I was using was single auto focus MF assist. No time to stop and attempt pinpoint focusing. After processing I am glad I did not have a composed thought out shot. Because what I ended up with was a fight or flight moment, and it appears to be so natural. Just as if you the viewer was seeing it in person instead of print or digital copy.
