Last weekend I went for lunch at the Calgary Tower. It is a rather large tourist attraction with a revolving restaurant and look out deck (think the Space Needle). While I was up there I took this quick snap shot of the neighbouring buildings. If you look at the settings you can tell this shot was not really thought out in any way, as I had my settings set up for shooting photos inside the restaurant. If I was going to be taking my time and actually thought about shooting this photo I would have set my aperture at a much higher number (like f20) and would have turned my ISO back down. In any case, I still like the picture :).
Camera: Canon 6D & 24-105L @73mm ~ Settings: 1/3200 – f/5.6 – ISO 1000
Thanks for stopping by, Rob
Sometimes it’s best to simply enjoy the view and forget about photography! A difficult task. Nice shot nonetheless! I forgot there was a restaurant up there as it’s been quite some time since I’ve visited Calgary.
Agreed Mike, and yes it is easier said than done for sure haha. You should come out this summer! I wanna try and make it out your way this summer. We should meet up.
