Photo Adventures with Curiosity and Learning

May 6, 2011: Birds and Arrows at WUNC

The best part of my visits to Duke is visiting Josh - and next week he and Alexia (here) will be married. Today, Josh, part of Birds and Arrows, will be doing a bit at WUNC - so off I went with camera in hand

Here is a tune by Birds and Arrows - Andrea, Pete and Jowh

There were several studios - and here Josh and cello are doing a sound check

I did all the photos in natural light, in both raw and jpg format. Exposure was 1/30 sec, f/2.8 using my new Tamron 17-50 mm lens. This is a big experiment for me - I bought a D7000 to replace my old D90. So I'm shooting with an unfamiliar instrument. The above was my first exposure to the video recording option and I was pleased
