I was seated in my car, and pulled over to the side of the road around the 48th & Market St area in West Philly. It's alot of construction going on along this stretch of tracks.
Anyways, I was taking images of the work going on underneath ...when I heard the train. I had to quickly switch from AV mode to Tv mode...for a steadier shot. Had I had that tripod.... I would have gone for that slower shutter to blur just the train. Didn't want to waste my time knowing that no matter how steady I "think" I might be able hold the camera steady the whole image STILL would have turned out "shaky"
Another opiton I considered was that AI Servo function. Keep in mind, I'm sitting in my driver's seat... window down... telephoto lens pointed up on some street corner in WEST PHILLY!! ROFL!! I guess the fact that I notoriously sport dark RayBan frames added to the whole mysitque of "who is THAT??" parked on the corner.
And then on top of that... I'm fidgity with the buttons and all on the camera, tryin to get it all "right" while THE EL is fast approaching my spot
I like the end result though....
