Week 48, Day 334, March 29, 2010, Cornell Fan

While I was waiting for the bus I immediately noticed this Cornell Fan walking toward the bus.  We were not near a sporting event, and this was an uncommon site.  His enthusiasm was a lot of fun, so I asked him, and his family if it was okay to take his photo.  They very generously said yes, and explained that his mother is an Alumni of Cornell.  I think that we might be looking at a future Alumni as well.  Thank you for the opportunity to take the photograph, and for spreading your enthusiasm on the Campus.

On the photography side, I forgot and had the ISO set way to high.  I've been better about this, but when I was swept up in the moment I made a mistake.

Lessons Learned:
  • Be bold, and ask people to take their photographs.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/800 sec, Aperture f/6.4, ISO 3200, Focal Length 20 mm, Lens Canon EF 17-40mm, hand held.

Yeah, I'm still working on that part - the "be bold" part. Good for you for taking that first step. nice image.
