Perseid’s Meteors – 1 — Wedding Photographer – 0

I tried my hand tonight at chasing meteor showers instead of a bride. :)  The Perseids meteor shower has been something that I have been reading about over the last few days with the hope that I would be able to get at least one shot of a meteor.  So I had everything all set up and ready to go.  I have just come inside after about an hour of at least 10 mosquito bites, my feet are soaked (sandals are not a good idea for meteor hunting), and zero shots of any meteors.  I am curious to know if this is the way everybody starts off.  I can see this as probably one of the last times that I try this type of photography.  Not saying that I am quiting, but too much work for not enough results.  Here it is at 3am and I could have taken these same shots at about 10pm.  Do you get the feeling that frustration is creeping in here? 🙂

I felt like I was in a little bit of a guessing game out there…I think I saw one…hmm…nope.  Well…maybe it was…I am not really sure what it is that I am looking for to be exact.  My guess is that I should have gone to bed and gotten up early to see if I could catch something before sunrise, but I have a bunch of sessions tomorrow, so that was not happening.

Anyways…I did manage a couple of cool shots while I was out there…but I wasn’t able to get anything from Perseid.
