Now knowing how time is of the essence, Hubby quickly we became enthralled in what we were doing after an initial “hiccup”. Being fully present both in our walk and what was around us, for a few moments we actually strolled hand-in-hand. Not for long however, because very soon both of our hands became occupied with our cameras.
How completely we enjoyed each other’s company, at times just laughing and kidding around. Sadly I told Hubby this is how I remember how we used to be until major responsibilities (aka special needs cats) came along. Looking at him, from my Heart I told him we must keep doing this cuz it is so good for the both of us!
[If it is important enough, one makes time to do that which is important. Hubby is learning to put the “work” aside to have some fun. Thank goodness!]
Again time flew by. Hubby really got excited when he observed how I approach walking in a forest as an adventure, as if I am hunting for treasure, so he too began to look for things that popped out at him. He’d point. Then I would. How’s that? Naw, the light is not right. OOOOOO yes look over there! We gotta get that! And on it went ….
I was told he learned more with me then he did the entire time he went to photography school regarding the subject of light. But of course, Hubby. The only way you can learn that, is by experiencing it.
He was using a Canon Rebel T5i with a 17-55mm kit lens. My camera was a Canon 6D with a 100-400mm L-series lens attached. His lens is bottom line while mine is top line. Now, before you say, “oh that’s not fair” I offered Hubby the use of my 24-105mm L-series lens but he refused. His learning curve …. When he saw the quality of my pictures next to his he declared he will be using my lens when we go out shooting again.
Below you will find galleries of “his” and “her” pictures next to each other so you can compare. Every one of the pairs is taken of the exact same landscape just with a different lens focal length and technique. Hubby shot in large file JPEG while I shot in large file RAW. All editing was done by me, something Hubby WILL be learning to do in the future. Please enjoy the show!
