Get That Perfect Shot! by Gene Walls

Currently unavailable for purchase

Sarah Palin waded out into the crowd in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. I think their were more cameras than people there, and there truly were lots of people. Pros and amateurs alike were all trying to get the very best photograph of the event.

Point of interest …If you spot anybody in this photo without a camera in hand, that person is either Sarah Palin, Todd Palin or a Secret Service Agent.

This photo was taken “handheld” with a Canon EOS 10D using a Canon EF 35-350mm f/3.5-5.6L zoom lens. The focal length was 35mm. The shutter speed was 1/125th sec. at f/9.5. The camera’s ISO was set to 1600, no flash was used.

Your comments are always welcome! Constructive criticism is appreciated.

FEATURED in “The Photographer in Action”

Hello, My name is Gene. I live in the Susquehanna river valley (West Branch), in the mountains of north central Pennsylvania. I strive to produce photographic images that are simply “true” to the subject, usually with minimal post processing. If something is beautiful or interesting enough to deserve a viewer’s attention, it justifies being captured just as it is …or as close to reality as possible.
