Anna Diederich September 20, 2009

Thanks so much everybody!

For those of you who asked here is my set up. I went to the produce department of my local grocery store. I chose Meijer because of the pretty blue cart. I added fruits and veggies to the back of my cart. I set my camera bag in the front of the cart....the spot where a child would sit. I used my 10-22 WA lens and attached the remote shutter release. I set my SS to 1/5, ISO 200, f/10. I looked for the most colorful isle and pushed my cart as I was shooting. Easy Peasy! #7963759

Michael Umbreit September 20, 2009

Debbi Smirnoff November 26, 2009

Thanks so much for the image details Anna!

Two questions?
No flash...??
AV or Manual?

I've tried to do a similar shot and I fail miserably.
You are so talented!
