This just goes to show that you don’t need fancy gear to take meaningful shots. For this photo, I snuck up to the top balcony when no one was looking and squeezed off a few shots. I was using the flowers as a foreground for depth in the photo, I adjusted the light settings, and took a half a dozen shots. Later, I came home and desaturated the photo in photoshop, and posted it as my lead picture on my blog. I try to look for interesting angles (people often ask why I hold the camera up so high) and since it’s a very compact camera, I can hide it in my palm and take a shot of unsuspecting individuals when they’re not expected it (and those are often the best kind). It’s kind of a guerrilla style of photo taking.
