Pro Tip #1

21 posts in this topic

For all you out there longing to be pro photographers, here's a little trick that I saw used today. Make sure you've got at least two cameras hanging around your neck, one having a lens that will create lens envy in 95% of the population. Position yourself into the street during the 4th of July parade and look professional:

Really, what's happening is that you are now in a position to beat all the little kids to the candy that the floats are throwing!!!!!

BUSTED!

Just who is that fat blob, anyway? Geez, Ken, thanks for sharing the flattering shots, good buddy. gringrin

That second one is what biologists call a predator assessment stare. Wolves, bears and mountain lions use it in deciding whether the prey is worth killing or not. In this case, I think said predator decided the game was too old and stringy to be of much value. Of course, with a big ole pot-bellied male like this yellow one, there ain't a lot of prey except for a 12-ouncer that would get him out of his crouch. But he still remembers how, so watch it. gringringrin

Man, do I need to go on a diet or what? frown

Uh, where was I going to take you to see showy ladyslippers next week? Can't seem to remember the location all of a sudden. gringrin

Next time, might I suggest a crop like this, unless you're going for truth in photojournalism. gringrin

Look, how he is hiding a small bag of candy under his knee, the poor child behind him can't find it and has since left for home in tears. Just look at the second photo, the Grandmother is dragging the weeping child away.

Grandma's dragging the child away, and the child is weeping, because of a cloud of gas around me that was chili the night before. Every photographer's got a bag of tricks to keep pesky youngsters from getting in the way of his shot, and that's one of mine.

Guess we could call that Pro Tip #2. gringrin

Steve, I don't think you need the chili. Just give him the look that you gave poor innocent Ken. That'll send any child away in tears.

And according to upnorth, probably somewhat more masculine, as well.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
