Lost & Found

By all rights this photo is garbage. At 1/15 of a second exposure, most of the leg movement becomes a semi-transparend blur. It’s noisy and you can barely make out what it is.

But somehow it seems to work. This is the magic of some shots.

Like many photographers, I spend good money on equipment so I can squeeze maximum beauty out of each pixel. And that isn’t enough; I must have more pixels. I try to keep this in check, and there’s a name for it; GAS – Gear Acquisition Syndrome. Once in awhile, a ppicture like this helps to bring me down to earth.

There was little I could fix in this image. Sometimes a trip to Photoshop and some laborious tweakings can help restore a degree of sharpness to an image that is a little soft – but not here.
