the goal is speed and number of flips accomplished during
one'revolution' around the tree.]


  1. Wow, Andie! Looks good... way too good... =) I especially like the focus on the last picture, and I like the room you gave the subject on the first picture - showing that the subject was bound for somewhere! =)

  2. Thanks, Teresa =).

    Hopefully I can post some BTS photos once I get them from the Knopps.

  3. Sweet pictures Andie. The sense of motion you capture is great. I am amazed that you were able to partially freeze your subject (in the third picture) while the rest of him is, pardon the pun, in full swing.

  4. Well, truthfully, it was all a matter of chance that the motion was caught that way. I wish I could take credit though :wink:.

    I took a total of about 300 shots while he was swinging and kept only about 15 or so =P.

    Motion is an area that I really need to work on to actually capture what I want on purpose as oposed to chance :wink:.

    Thanks for the encouragement.

p.s. I intentionally don't have watermarks on my photos— mostly because I think they're tacky. However, this does NOT mean I give you liberty to steal my photos. If you want to use a photo for anything, just ask me... I usually say yes.
