The knock on Seattle has stereotypically been that it’s always gloomy and rains. We were extremely fortunately throughout the week to have great weather with bright sun rays. It rained a bit on our last day so we felt like we got a taste of Seattle’s famed weather but this was far from expected. With sun like this from time to time and greenery all around, Seattle’s really an amazing place to be!
I really like the look of lens flares. The first few times I tried it I was looking through the DSLR eye piece and soon realized I was exposing my eyes directly into a magnifier. Whew! glad I wised up instantly and started using the view finder. I guess that’s a tip for anyone trying these kind of shots…don’t be looking into the sun!
