A few short days ago, I decided to go on a photo shoot with my Canon and accessories, and with my Samsung Galaxy Camera 2. Coming off from camera vacation, and jumping into winter photography, shooting with my heavy Canon equipment, I realized how out of shape I had become while only holding a little camera. Huffing and puffing, with full (heavy) backpack on my back, tripod slung over a shoulder, bundled up with a LOT of outer gear on, I trudged through snow to get some pretty amazing shots.
I set up my tripod very low to the ground which meant I had to kneel in the snow (not just once but several times), and while contorting myself as I peered through the view finder, my beautiful (darn!) hat kept on slipping over my eyes. Impatiently and with an audible um well expletive, I tugged my hat back off from my eyes to clear my vision, all along determined to have my eyes peeled on the perfect spot to shoot. And then getting up … well, that was another whole different matter. You bet I groaned out loud. You bet!
And with another verbal um well, OK, my favorite word that begins with an “s”. Use your imagination. (wink) And along with that, a grumbled … “This just doesn’t get easier. Darn!”
When I finished up with the photo shoot (soaking wet from the exertion) and was actually walking back towards my parked car, I stopped and said, “Hey, wait a minute! I have my Samsung with me. Let me take some shots to see how different the images look between the two cameras.” So I turned around and walked back to the spot where I last was shooting.
I did my best to get the exact same shots, but when I used one of my cameras, the sun had come out from behind the clouds. The lighting of course was vastly different. I spent a lot of time in editing rooms, to get each of the following photographs looking almost as if they came from the same camera.
You didn’t think I would make things too easy for you when I would ask you …
“Which one is which? Which photograph was taken by my Canon 50D and which one was taken by my Samsung Galaxy Camera 2?”
Tee hee … I want YOU to tell me in the comments which photo YOU think was taken by my Canon. Good luck to you. I think you will need it. I am going to deliberately wait all day long until I answer you if you are right or if you are wrong.
Again, good luck. You are going to need it!! GRIN! Above all, have FUN!
PS IF you don’t know, don’t feel bad. Even I would have a difficult time figuring this puzzle out. LOL
