It isn't perfect, but it got me into the Smithsonian.
I believe I do a decent job at action and environmental portraits and want to get better at doing more-formal sitdown shots. That requires mastering the lighting and other variables that help bring out the subject's personality. This is going to be a tale of how I bumbled into what I feel is a pretty good shot.
What do I keep? Anything resembling a picture. The blurry stuff I usually delete in camera. I also don't keep the referee-butt images (which I call "doing the butt") that feed my photographic fish stories (I had this award-winning shot, but a referee ran into the frame as I squeezed the shutter).
