I don’t normally shoot street photography, but over the weekend I was out in Old Town Alexandria with my girlfriend, her sister, and their friend having dinner. Had my Canon 5D Mark III with me and was taking some shots of the people in the area for the Memorial weekend. After dinner we decided to walk around and came across King Street Bluegrass.
The west wing of the National Air and Space Museum houses America by Air. This exhibit details some of the history of air transportation in the United States in the early 20th century. Various aircraft are suspended from the ceiling along with pieces of more modern aircraft on the floor that you can examine closer.
In recent years the latest DSLRs have come with the ability to shoot at incredibly high ISOs. The tradeoff of course when you shoot at these high ISOs is you get a lot of noise in the image too. But you get the shot, so it’s the choice between having a noisy image and having nothing. One of the things I’ve found interesting to test is how clean can you get high ISO shots. The new Canon 5D Mark III will shoot at ISO 102,400, so how clean can you get an image taken at ISO 102,400? Looks like pretty clean!
Some more pictures from my trip to Thailand back in November, this time shots from a day market.
The National Air and Space Museum houses some historical spacecraft that one day will have helped us go to infinity and beyond!
I went out into Washington DC because of the interesting clouds in the sky from the storm that was coming through. Which I did get some pictures of that, but in the end I was trying to capture lighting!
Took this picture of the Air and Space Museum on the National Mall in Washington DC a couple of days before the super moon in May of 2012.
More pictures from my trip to Thailand last year in November.
