p.1 #1 · THE most frustrating day of my life


This week I had THE most frustrating morning of shooting Iíve ever experienced.... I won't recount the entire story here but it involved missing gear, broken brackets, siezed bits and I still went home happy. Got to love shooting macro!

By the time I arrived back at the bees, you guessed it, they had all up and gone. Iím sure I saw the one I originally singled out earlier fly by with one of itís tiny little bee fingers in the air. ďWoosahĒ I muttered, doing my best to channel Marcus from Bad boys ..... I think something broke inside me at that point. I went from being filled with frustration to laughing and actually seeing the funny side. Iíve always taken the position that if you canít laugh at yourself, then who can you laugh at? And at that particular moment, I looked like a right goose.

The rest of the story is at http://www.anthonytancredi.com/blog/ for anyone interested, otherwise, just the pics below!


Cheers,
Anthony

A lovely set of images, Anthony. Just love the blog entry !! It makes me feel a bit better about some of my efforts. We all need the occasional "growth" opportunity or so I'm told

Very nice set Anthony. I never get that blue on the BBB's. Never even see it any way, except the faintest blue - pp tricks?

Thanks Andy, Gustavo and Mark. Appreciate it!

Mark: Yes and No . I've gotten the blue appearing on a couple of shots... not sure why (maybe more natural sunlight, less flash? seems very fickle in number of appearances though). This one had it so gave a healthy push to the vibrancy / saturation sliders in Camera raw (limited to the backend of the bee) to help show it up.
