    I decided to continue instead of taking a break. I really just needed to sleep on it, because I was being kind of irrational last night.

    So, some good news. I tried my remote again, and by some miracle it still works even after an hour at the bottom of the pool, and also, I told my Uncle Dennis about my tripod, and he bought a new one online right away and it will be here in a couple days. He's so great. He bought me my 50mm f/1.8 too.

    (I managed this shot with my little tabletop tripod. It wasn't easy. It kept falling over under the weight of my camera.)

      oh my gosh. I love this concept! I bet that was pretty freaky getting in that hole. No telling whats crawling in there with you.
      Great shot man!

      this is so great.
      do you have to travel far for most of the location you shoot at?
      all the locations of your shoots are amazing.

      @Pranaya: Nope. 90% of the locations at which I shoot are in the woods behind my house. It has a mostly-dried creek running through it with high walls, and there's where I took this.

      Did you notice a huge difference from changing to a Canon EOS 5D Mark II for the Nikon D3000?
