Doug Smith
by Doug Smith

Taken using EOS Utility. On the computer monitor you see the image previous to the one being taken using my finger on the mouse. Exposure in Av mode resulted in mixed lighting from the high intensity light in the image (showing the 18 point star flare diagnostic of a 9 blade diaphragm lens). I should have waited until later in the day so the window would not be so overexposed (explaining why I cropped most of it out). If I did it over, I would angle the high intensity light so as not to glare on the monitor but this will do for the assignment.

Canon EOS 30D ,Peleng 8mm f/3.5 MC
1/13s f/8 iso400 with Flash full exif

other sizes: small medium original auto

Creative use of the fisheye! Feels like I'm in the room with you.

An extremely fine job here Doug. When I just saw the small version
of this shot, at first I though you were in an audio recording studio.
But now I see it's your visual mastering studio. :-) Yeah, good shot.
