Nikon F3 - Day 13

May I present my beloved Nikon F3. My ambition today was to create a kind of advertising look using only one light source - a Nikon SB-900 - and using a narrow beam to highlight the product and making the surroundings visible but not distracting for the viewer. Fot that purpose I used a honey comb Speed Grid from and had to take a lot of shots to hit the right angle and distance of the flash beam (Photo 1 + 2). In photo 3 i removed the grid and used the SB-900 w/o any light modified thereby enhancing the surroundings and making the books part of the story.

My favorite is photo 2 - but what do you think?

Nikon D300 w. 50mm f/1.4D, ISO 200, Flash WB, 1/60 sec at f/9.0, 0EV, SB-900 w. Nikon SC-29 TTL cord, TTL BL mode.

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.
