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.

    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.
