News Chopper

News Chopper

Look… a shitty snapshot! Well, not quite shitty, I’m pretty pleased with it considering the circumstances, just wish it had been better framed. There has been a news chopper thundering around my neighborhood the last few days, filming some hydrofoil (hydrojet, whatever they call the big, gas-guzzeling boys toys) races on the river. On a whim, upon hearing it really low and close to my house, I rushed out with my camera. I have only recently begun shooting in raw, and constantly forget that it takes several seconds of processing time between shots, you can’t just go click click click. I buggered up the distance on my first shot, realised I was shooting in raw, panicked as it came over head, and almost buggered this one up, got the focus pretty good, but was not quite calm enough to frame it nicely. Oh well, it’s still a pretty nice pic (:
