Partly cloudy. Either I blew out the highlights because the sun popped out after I’d setup the shot or I captured a murky, dark scene because the sun vanished behind clouds after I had the camera ready for a shadowy image.
Windy. Not only was I knocked about like so much paper blowing in the breeze, but many of my subjects likewise had a hard time sitting still—meaning I have lots of blurry pictures and lots of photos missing the main target.
Fingerprint. At some point during this morning’s walk, and without realizing it, I planted my fat thumb right in the middle of the UV filter and left a remarkably clear imprint that happily sat between the lens and everything I tried to shoot from that point forward.
Sunglasses. I kept forgetting I had my sunglasses on, so I’d set the lighting too high based on the dimmer view I was seeing rather than what the camera was seeing.
Some days it’s just not worth chewing through the restraints…
