    Well, I went out the other evening to shoot, with the idea of not giving a crap!.. I gotta tell you, it was refreshing. I'm always so concerned with composition, settings, and yada yada... It was very refreshing to go out, and just not care..

    Well here's a few... Although I must confess, I am still trying to figure out how to get light streaks with a sunset without blowing out the sky.. .Any suggestions??? C&C always welcome...

    In order to get the light streaks while maintaining the integrity of the sky I would try using a graduated neutral density filter. It will allow you to properly expose for the foreground while keeping a properly exposed sky.

    Honestly, caring about composition is not a chore to me, and i dont think i could "Not care" about composition. Its cool how after a while your eye learns to pick out what will work so when your take a look through the view finder your already most of the way to getting that shot just the way you want it

    No, I can't help but do all that stuff automatically now. Not that I don't ever screw up (I am always learning), but I am usually paying attention to what I am doing. It is just engrained now to do that ;)

    Plus, it would completely piss me off if I had the opportunity for a killer picture and screwed it up by doing something stupid composition wise ;)

    Funny you should say that.. because this morning I was thinking maybe a N.D. filter might help... So I guess I'm going to have to pick one up... Just when you think you have all the gear you need... :lol:

    Perhaps I should have re-phrased, I'm obsessive about composition... So it was nice to just point the camera and fire off shots...:D

    lol @ victim. thats good :thumbup:

    yes as mentioned ND filter i think.

    this kind of walk-around photog is worthwhile. something often comes up that cannot be anticipated. and if not.. well you got some fresh air. ;)
