and straight forward. Camera, on a Gitzo tripod. Arca Swiss
monoball tripod head, and a zoom lens (70 to 210 mm. or
close to it). No silks, no nets, no reflectors (earlier in
the day, yes; but not now); just direct, late-afternoon
My style of
photography (tripod, carefully posed shots), evolved from my
use of slower lenses (maximum aperture, F:4.0), and
Kodachrome film (generally 64 ASA).
I still use tripods
for most of my photos, because they help me to frame my
shots rather precisely, as well as to keep the camera steady
regardless of exposure speed.
Shooting in wine
country is not a bad gig; we toured a winery, and, of
course, sampled the libations.
