Results from the photo walk

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009 at 11:13 pm

A few days ago I went into the city for the photo walk that I had previously mentioned.

After catching a train into the city I was quite surprised about how many other people had turned up, I think at least 15.

The walk was quite enjoyable and after Docklands we ended up going past the new exhibition centre to Flinders Street Station. Most people headed home, but a couple of us went for a coffee/beer. I intend to go along on the next one. Whenever that will be.

I took over 500 photos (in RAW which means 5GB of data) and I have just finished sorting through them and uploading the final 67 to a set on Flickr.

I still need to add proper descriptions (instead of the timestamp) and choose which ones to add to the group pool. It is interesting to see others have already added to the pool as it allows me to compare how other people saw the same situation.

  1. Very nice sounds like it was a good outing. I might try to make it the next one. All your photos were so brilliantly clear. Did you swap lens or stick to one? I suppose I could look at the meta data on Flickr but its easier to ask. :-)

  2. I stuck with the 17-85mm all day. It was actually the only lens I took with me in order to save space and weight.

    Looking at the metadata wouldn’t have helped in this case as although the lens info is in the EXIF data in the RAW image, Picasa (I have also been playing with Lightroom, but it was easier to do this lot in Picasa) didn’t include that in the exported JPEG. But it does when the source is also a JPEG.

    I spend most of the day shooting at f/11 (depth of field) and ISO100 (low noise). Apart from cropping (and straightening a bit) in Picasa I did tweak the levels a little bit.
