BOLO 2010 photos


in Daily updates, Geek stuff, Internet matters, Ottawa, Photography

My photos from yesterday’s blogging event are on Picasa:

I think I managed to get a shot of everyone who read, with a few of the crowd thrown in. Some more photos are in a Facebook album. I also have photos from last year’s event.

My thanks go out to David Scrimshaw, who had the cleverness and boldness to point a couple of the ceiling-mounted house lights at the microphone, greatly facilitating the photography of all present. Indeed, there were very few annoying flashes.

If anybody wants full resolution files, they can contact me. Keep in mind, the original files are about 10 megabytes a piece, at 5616 x 3744 pixels. Also, my internet connection is in terrible shape. Getting these on Picasa took hours, and many false starts.

They were pretty much all shot between 6,400 ISO and 25,600 ISO. I was expecting the venue to be a bit brighter, so I brought my 70-200 f/4 lens, whereas my 50mm f/1.8 might have been a better choice.

Someone should tell Margaret Wente about the proportion of females to males at such events.

Yikes. I am one of ‘those’ people that shoot on auto. I will not do that anymore – thanks for pointing it out and offering help on how to avoid annoying other photographers. I will play around with my camera and figure out the different settings. Thank you.
I thought your reading was excellent. I would agree with your top favourite lists – but would add yours as well.

26,500 ISO? Yowza! Your dedication to not using a flash is nothing short of inspirational
