Behind the Shot

Although I forgot last Thursday to take photos of the group during the workshop, an attendee (Rob) managed to grab a couple of photos of me while I was working. I thought I'd share them (I hope that's OK Rob!) to help folks see what I was doing behind the shot.

You see? One of my many skills as a photographer--walking backwards and shooting. I just know one of these days I'm going to totally biff it.

What I was doing...

And the shot...

Seems pretty safe.

Now see? I'm not afraid to get a bit dirty, too.

The shot.

Hopefully that will inspire you to go for some different angles when you're taking photos.


  1. Great decision to show the setup and the resulting shot. Helps explain to people what's happening when they see us photogs get into all kinds of weird positions.

    Looks like you're sporting the Black Rapid Double Strap (linked for those who want to know more). I'd be very interested if you would do a gear list post with your thoughts on what you have, or even better, individual gear reviews. Who else would like to read Mary's opinions?

    As always, Mary, keep up the good work.

  2. Workshop?!?!??! I want to come to a workshop!
