Show and Tell



A fun blog is having a show and tell story picture time. I wanted to join in. This picture was either skill or luck, I cant decide. It was when I still had my lame little Rebel (the first one canon ever made, it took 3 years to take a picture) I had a fish eye on that a friend let me barrow and had a HUGE professional lens that someone else let me barrow with a big ol filter on it. It made my little dinky camera weigh about 20 pounds, it was literally bigger than the camera itself. I was asked to photograph an 80s dance and this guy looked like he was about to do something cool when he goes in the middle of the dance floor. People gather around and BAM a flip from standing flat on two feet. I GOT IT IN MID AIR, completely upside down! first time! BOO-YA! Little dinky camera came thru for me!
