This is my hand. Tried taking this with the 50mm f1.8 but my arm is too short and it was darn near impossible to take it at 50mm. So the good ol' sigma 17-70 did the job =)
I read something about "Orton's" technique (donno if I've spelt that right) but I had a lil shot at it. Not sure if I've done it right but meh.
