Day 192 – ‘Mistake’ Photo

July 11, 2009

I follow the Digital Photography School‘s feed in my RSS reader. They have weekly assignments for their readers to complete. Though I have never submitted any photos to their contests, I occasionally do the assignment for fun. This week’s assignment is A Mistake: a photo, originally thought of as a mistake, which turned out better than expected. When I read this, I immediately thought of this photo I took of Liz and Andrew dancing at a jazz performance at Hillsdale. I forgot to change the settings on my camera, and the shot ended up being a long exposure. Luckily, I had the strobe on rear-curtain and a steady hand, so the ‘mistake’ shot ended up as a photo which froze Liz and Andrew in place, but still showed their motion. I miss Liz and Andrew. I can’t wait to see them on August 27!
