Knife & Chili - Day 27

A boring still life photo.

I needed to test a reverse mounting of my camera on a tripod - so instead of the camera hovering above the three legs of the tripod, it was now hanging between the legs (that sounds as something else) enabling a clean and plan photo of the subject placed on the floor directly under the main axis of the tripod.
I was handholding two Speedlights (SB-600 and SB-900) controlled with PWs. The power of the flash units was managed by the PocketWizard AC3 unit (SB-900 = Group A / SB-600 = Group B). The camera was set to time lapse release of 5 sec and I used my cable release Nikon MC-36 to focus and release the camera which gave me time to drop the cable release a grab the flash units before they went of.

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.
