Self Portrait - Day 25

Today I couldn't find any inspiration or ideas for the daily photograph. I'm tired after 2 hours of spinning and I have a cold. Hmfffff.

So I Chose to test the Lightscoop Warm flash bouncer unit together with a Nikon MC-36 remote cable release unit attached to my Nikon D300. In this way I could position my self in front of the camera and auto focus by pressing the "release" botton on the MC-36 and take the photo by pressing full. A very smart little cable release unit this Nikon MC-36.

This photo was captured with my iPhone 4 - hence the bad quality due to difficult light situation. As you can see the Lightscoop Warm is placed in the flash hotshoe and the harsh flash light is reflected to the left where is bounced on a white book shelf. This will ofcourse result in lesser light than if the flash light had bounced from the white ceiling. The only way to show the Nikon MC-36 was to wrap it around the flash head :-)

This is the photograph - I must apologize for my appearance but here we go. In LR3 I dropped the saturation a bit and made a few other small corrections (needed :-) )-

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.
