Condor, Grand Canyon


This is a shot I took with a very primitive digital camera many years ago. 

I use the bottom pic for the screenshot on my laptop. 

I have had people tell me that I didn't actually take it or fabricated it somehow. Not so.

If you are shooting with a low resolution camera in situations like this and can't get maximum focus, resolution or clarity, my suggestion is to really dial background clarity back and turn your photograph into more of a graphic image. Think like a painter. Flatten the image out.

I have used this philosophy many times and it works for me.

Good composition and an image that actually says something trumps technical perfection every time in my world.
