Golden Sponge - Day 2

Day 2 in my "Project 365" was exiting. I saw this sponge a couple of days ago and decided that it should star in one of my upcoming photographs. I found a piece of shale that I brought home from Norway many years ago and mounted the sponge upside down on the shale. As I also learning to use my SB-900 flash I tried both combining flash and ambient light and using flash only. I decided for the flash only light as it created more punch to the photo and it was easier to angle the light to create various shadows. After many variations I decided for a slight angled light beam coming straight above the sponge at a distance of 30 cm.

On the Nikon D300 I mounted the AF-S Micro Nikkor 60mm f/2.8G ED lens and used a tripod and a 2 second self timer delay. Exposure was 1/60 sec at f/25 to get a lot of sharpness (ISO 200). The SB-900 was controlled by using the built in flash as Commander. In Lightroom I used added the color treatment trying to create a contrast between the "cold" shale and the "warm" sponge.

I've just ordered a new book from Amazon. The name "x-teams" immediately caught my eye as I read about it in the Danish business newspaper - Børsen. The reviewer assigned 5 marks out of six, so expectations are high.
X-Teams written by Deborah Ancona and Henrik Bresman raises an interesting question already on the front cover.
"Why do teams fail?"
The topic of the book is how to build teams that lead, innovate, and succeed. I'll write a short review as soon as I've read it.

Mia Blichfeldt

Sometimes you get lucky. I shot this natural portrait of Mia Blichfeldt - a very gifted and up-coming badminton player at a private party - just a month before she became the youngest Danish Champion in Badminton in the senior league - and she is only 16!

Of course you can find many photos of Mia "in action", but only very few where she is being just herself - outside the badminton arena.
