    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    The Shooter and the Model.

    When we visited the Butterfly House inside the San Antonio Zoo, we came across this two young ladies doing a photo shoot. I immediately saw the idea of taking a shot of the lady photographer while she take some shots of the model and this is what I came up with. I think the model knew that I was taking some stolen shots but I guess she didn't mind.

    Click the image to see it in Lightbox.
    The Shooter and the Model.

    -------
    Nikon D70, Nikon 18-70mm lens at 38mm, Exposure at ISO 400, f4.2 at 1/320 second, Matrix Metering in Aperture Priority Mode.

    Thanks, Thierry. The place was really crowded at that time and it was really hard for me to find a good angle to compose the shot. Not to mention my sore shoulders so taking shots in portrait mode is a disadvantage for me most of the time. I could clone the chair out later. Thanks for viewing!

    Thanks, Donald. Guess what... the young lady photographer uses a Canon 5D MkII with the red lined Canon lens! This girl must be earning good money doing this kind of stuff. Unfortunately she forgot to bring some reflectors to control the shadow areas on the model. Oh well, I'm not a Pro so I'll leave this stuff to the real shooters out there.

    No problem Willlie. your angle was according to me the better and in such situation you have an instant to catch

    You probably got a better shot than she did..from the angle she was shooting, I suspect she got a lot of unwanted shadow whereas your angle eliminated most of that.

    Thanks, Chris. It was fun hearing her Canon 5D shutter go like a machine gun in burst mode. Hahaha! Mine goes Click... Click... Click...

    I think I've used my burst mode maybe three times...it does 6 frames per second. Generally, I just plain forget I have it.

    As with most of your images, I like this shot very much.

    However, the bold title and name at the bottom distracts me from the image.

    I wonder if a less bold or smaller font would not work better?

    I could make the font smaller, Richard. Thanks.

    Thanks, Mario. I think that if you click on any image posted on CiC (Except for the one's that are uploaded as an attachment) it can always be seen via the lightbox. I use flickr and I usually set my largest image size to be 1500 pixels. In that way, I don't lose much sharpness when CiC "resizes" (if that's the right term to describe it) to 700 pixels max. When you click my image, the lightbox will show it large but not at 1500 pixels but instead at 1024 pixels on the largest dimension. It is not the CiC's system doing it but the Flickr account that I have. As a regular account user, the largest size that I can only others view my work is at 1024 pixels. Hope this helps, Mario.
