Shooting from the Waist

We came back to NJ at the start of a heatwave. Yay.

We also came back to a water main break. Make that 3 water main breaks that affected our county.

Yay.

Today we took L back to the fossil beds. I find myself turning on all of my focus points and shooting from the waist more and more when we are out and about.

These were all shot (except the water main break image) from the waist in manual with my 24-70mm 2.8. Many of my Disney photos were shot the same way. The 24-70mm was my BFF in Disney. It was the only lens I brought with me each day. I was able to carry my camera and backpack camera bag the entire time in Disney without any problems. I also brought along the GoPro and my Canon G12 each day. Oh, and my camera bag's waterproof cover came in handy!

Do you ever shoot from the waist?

Sunday Snapshot

Our weekend in pictures. Saturday we went to a local flea market at the beach in Ocean Grove. I found the coolest thing! I'll have to take a picture of it. I'm in love with it!

Every spring the tents get erected in Ocean Grove . At one point there were over 600 of them. I believe there are only slightly over 100 left now. You can read about it HERE . It's pretty interesting!

Sunday started off with a visit to the Red Bank Farmers Market to see Adam at the Cinnamon Snail.

We were second in line.

This guy was first.

Yummmm

L had the chocolate cookie glazed donut.

Mike gets the breakfast burrito...religiously....with no hot peppers. Adam knows this and always has one off to the side waiting for Mike.

Me? I had the Creole Grilled Tofu Sub and O.M.G.

After that we headed to Poricy Park with the cousins to sift for fossils. Click HERE to read about the 72 million year old fossils we found. It was a blast and I can't wait to go back again.

 

Hope everyone had a great weekend too!
