The first photowalk of the year for me was a rather windswept and chilly event, but it was also a lot of fun, and a nice way to ease myself back into photography after my hiatus.
I put up a post in a photography related Facebook group that I planned to do an impromptu photowalk in central Malmö on Saturday, and two other photographers from the group showed up and joined me as we slowly moved from the Triangeln train station through the city’s central parts to the Malmö Central station and back again.
The forecast had mentioned cloudy weather and increasing winds, and unfortunately that was spot on, because by the time we turned back towards the Triangeln station we had the wind in our faces...and there was definitely a lot of it!
I decided to experiment with shooting my photos in Auto ISO mode and at 1/320th of a second, and letting the camera sort out the aperture. That worked okay for the shots when the sky was a uniform, cloudy gray, but once the sun began to shine through the clouds the camera couldn’t deal with that so well in that particular setting. A good learning experience I’d say. Now I know when to use that feature and when not to!
