Suzie Starbuck

John Krill: Suzie StarbuckThis is an experiment. Here at the beach it has been overcast like this for too many days. So while down at the beach today I was trying to come up with something a little different. Enter Suzie Starbuck.

Has anyone else noticed that if you want to be on one of the big sites you need a gimmick. So Suzie Starbuck it just one on the ideas I was fooling around with down at Main Beach, Laguna Beach, Ca.

Problem One: I need the cup in focus. For some it doesn't matter but for me it will always matter. Do I need to keep the cup level with the horizon?

Problem Two. Do I want Suzie Starbuck coming in from all sides of the frame or just the bottom? Worth trying.

Problem Three: Need to determine the smallest f-stop for complete sharpness. Along with that I need to determine what focal length I want to use and use that focal length for all Suzie Starbuck images.

More on Suzie Starbuck in the future or am I wasting useless time?
