Yesterday I spent the day bonding with my Canon 7D. I usually leave her at home because she takes away my attention. I turned on the mono preset for black and white shooting to make my random shooting interesting. It also allowed me to monitor my exposer. With the contrast, I could see right where the light was hitting.
We spontaneously went to LA yesterday for a Pink’s chili dog. I started shooting out the window and made jokes like, “Drive by shooting in LA”. It also help me notice the city details.
When we went to Melrose for a walk I started to snap photos by holding my camera in front of me. At times I had no idea what I was shooting. I was breaking all the rules. The benefit of digital is you can snap as many photos as you want.
