Explore..#1 Yay :)
There is a lot I have learned in taking these types of photograph, the learning curve is huge, and the potential for failure is also high. Some days everything goes right, other days nothing does. Some days your images are pin-sharp, your focus is second to none, but you just can't get the right shapes. Other days your shapes are perfect, but you just can't get the focus right. Sometimes both focus and shapes are great, but then your flashguns won't sync, or the photogate is playing up, or your batteries die. The list of potential hiccups is endless.
But then there are the days when it seems like everything is coming together, your batteries are full, the flashguns are behaving, focus looks sharp, the shapes are just what you wanted and life seems great.
Those are the days when God gets a sense of humour, and decides to send a fruit fly on a suicide mission....
*Sigh* Onwards with a smile :)
