Only got 1 jump to play around before the clouds filled in and shut us down for the day..
I've decided that I want to save up for the 10 to 20mm G series lens and in the mean time I'm using the 16 to 50mm kit lens. This jump I had the lens set on 16mm but I think I've worked out that when I'm chasing big/fast suits it is better to have the lens on 20mm.
Sony a5100, 16-50 kit lens
ISO 100, 16mm, F7.1, 1/800 sec.
I got a new camera helmet set-up and decided to go chase some groups.
I've always been into photography.. I actually used to have a website for my images and have owned a few Canon 5D's in the past but never put my interest of photography together with skydiving.
These images were taken with a Sony 5100 and either a 20m prime or 16mm pancake.
Things I learned from this day:
- The tongue switch I'm using will take some practice.. I thought I had taken a lot more photos than I actually did.
- I need to keep a little more distance away from the subject, it's easier to crop an image and be able to adjust the angle instead of being stuck with an image that you don't have any wiggle room with.
