Smiles upside down..

2003-06-26 16:13:42.087179+00 by meuon 2 comments

Fun things to do on a weeknight.. include helping Ann (caver friend) hang a rope from a tree in her back yard for climbing practice. It brings a new meaning to "hanging around at Ann's". - first thing she tries: rapelling upside down. - Putting a large external flash on my CyberShot makes a BIG difference on night shots.

Yes a big flash does help. A friend of mine some years ago took a great picture of an old steam locomotive at night. He used a looong multiple exposure shot from a heavy tripod, "painting" the loco by using about 8 different flashes to illuminate various parts. Now imaging doing it while you're dangling upside-down from Ann's tree and we first do your head, then your chest.....

Does anyone else keep flashing on "vertical smiles" when reading this entry? Out of my brain, Tom Robbins.
