Well my cold hasn’t gotten any better so at 5am I was in bed awake coughing and sneezing.. Karen had gone downstairs as I was making so much noise and so I turned the TV on and it was playing a rather wonderful movie called The Men with Marlon Brando as someone coming to terms with being newly paralysed.
Now prior to having purchased my Sony RX100 Mark 2 that would be the end of the story. But this camera was purchased so I could become looser and more spontaneous in my shooting and this proved to be the case. I pulled it out of my wheelchair bag lay back and took a number of shots. It was dark and so this was a good time to try out its ISO capabilities and I am pleased with the result. This was shot at ISO3200.
I did wonder whether a better shot would be a simple one framing Marlon Brando in the TV – like this below – but think the wheelchairs in the TV image, light values and positioning of TV and my chair work best.
So, its 8.50am and the photo of the day is done!
