  • Teacher: Kenji Tachibana Digital Photography I Windy Day: Stopping subject motion S haking in the Wind: I was a breezy Spring day in 2004. I was walking on to the campus from the south end of the campus. And my Nikon Coolpix 5400 was still relatively new and waiting to be tested. I noticed some yellow flowers shaking in the wind. The direct sunlight, the dark ivy background, and the shaking made them stand out.

To counter act this reality, I chose to use the 28mm (equiv.) super wide angle focal length. 6.I was ready to shoot knowing that I was going against a few of my own dont dos.
