This wasn’t actually the intended target (I was going for a wide angle crowd shot). But, this was the best part (or only good part) of the photo. It sort of caught the mood I felt from the weather and other things.
A gathering was held at Olympic Plaza on Saturday, October 24, 2009 to protest against latest round of health re-organization and cutbacks in Alberta. It was also used to promote a rally planned at Foothills Hospital on November 4, and outside the PC Party Convention in Red Deer on November 7.
I’m finding it a little frustrating that I’m actually worse off with the new DSLR versus my old high Zoom point&shoots in a circumstance like this. I had to manually switch between telephoto for closeups, and wide angle to get the full crowd, and the pictures weren’t much better, if at all. I’m sure I’ll eventually be able to get better photos, but not yet. So far, the main area of improvement is with no flash, low light, photography, where taking decent pictures just wasn’t possible with my old p&s. Anyway, I did realize when I acquired the DSLR that there’s a learning curve, and learning was really the whole point.
