Three Feathers - Day 3

Again I'm playing around with my Speedlights. The idea was to photograph some feathers falling through air with a piece of shale as back drop. A SB-900 and a SB-600 was placed left and right angled 45 degree  to the shale each controlled remotely by PocketWizard FlexTT5 & MiniTT1. But this attempt resulted in the lack of shadows - so I switched of the SB-600 and used the SB-900 from a more angled position to cast a shadow.
Trying to get 3-4 feathers to fall nicely through the air is not easy, so I took a three photos with just one feather and merged them in CS5. Back in Lightroom further twisting was made to achieve a contrast rich and saturated mono tone image.

The equipment was my Nikon D300 with AF-S Micro 60mm f/4.0G ED (Sync speed at 1/250).

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.
