Morning Greeting, China
Photo for December 2011: Morning Greetings.
This image illustrates the importance of having 2 working cameras, one mounted with a wide angle and the other with a telephoto. In this case, the 2 cameras were 5D Mark IIs and the lenses were a Canon 24-105 IS and the Canon 70-300 IS L.
The mist was making the light interesting and walking down the road, the 4 horses came together. It was a split second moment as one of them turned away almost immediately. If I had only a wide angle, this image would definitely not come to fruition. Changing lenses while the scene unfolds seems as difficult as writing with the other hand and frustration will no doubt set in.
Shot with the 70-300 IS L and processed in Aperture and Photoshop.
