I took these a couple of months ago on a long and boring bus trip, I decided to see just how many photos my trusty (crap) old fixed lens 2MP camera could take on a set of batteries – about 250 on 2 AA batteries – I tend to carry 6 batteries as part of my daily kit plus my digital camera and perhaps a film camera too. just for kicks and giggles.
Not quite on that shot, but I realized that I would get the background in focus.
The difficult thing was anticipating the time between pressing the shutter release and the camera taking the shot, In this case I got the digger on the back of the truck – less than ideal.
I started to get the hang of it about 20 trucks later and found that the sweet spot to try and get a shot of was the gap between the trailers, of course this didn’t work so well with white trucks as they did odd things to the exposure. Start of a nice gap there.
And there we have it – the shot I was trying for – only took about 50 attempts too.
