Photo of the Day: Dinni

Dinni, originally uploaded by The Bacher Family.
On October 21, Carl Fabiani retired from his job as Trails Foreman at Mount Rainier National Park after 45 years of service. Obviously the event was well-attended! I used my new 50mm prime lens to take photos during the event. My favorite is this image of Carl's wife Dinni, looking so proud on behalf of her husband as he receives the accolades of his peers.

Clearly, though, I need to upgrade to a camera that can take better photos in low light. This image is at the outer limit of what a Rebel XSi can capture, even with a good lens! I'm holding out for the new 5D Mark III, rumored to be coming out in 2011...

Here's another shot I love from Carl's party: a remarkable panorama stitched together from several shots, not easy to do when you're dealing with people who don't hold completely still, but it came out amazingly well and really shows how full the room was. Open the original image to get the full-screen effect.
