Around the world 1/125 of a second at a time.
Jim Rankin – Reporter Photographer
Being March Break and all, thought it’d be a good time to show you what photographers do when on vacation. Yeah, we shoot.
My better half and I have just returned from two weeks in Belize, where we beached ourselves, ate well, read lots and snapped away. The better half, a darn good shooter in her own right, she went armed with a Nikon D90 and a couple of lenses. I decided not to bring the big gear with me. Instead, I packed a newly bought Canon G11 point-and-shoot and underwater housing, good to deeper than 100 feet. Not that I dive, or anything. But we did spend a day snorkeling along the Belize Barrier Reef and also killed a hot afternoon tubing down rapids in inner tubes. I’m a Nikon guy, but I have to say the little Canon is a keeper.
A school of fish at the Hol Chan Marine Reserve, off Ambergis Caye. You’d think I would remember the species, but, no. Tech specs: Lens (mm): 6.1; ISO: 80; Aperture: 2.8; Shutter: 1/640; Exp. Comp.: 0.0
And now, some snaps from holidays past. Most of these were taken with pro NIKON DSLR gear.
For a final frame, something from a wonderful sun-bathed September in Provence.
