    I've started adding borders to my non-standard crops for printing. See this example:

    The border aligns to a 4x6 print. After printing, I can cut off the excess border if I want to. I've also started doing this for shots when I cropped it so small that it won't print well at 4x6 (shh, don't tell anyone)

    Kellie that is a very cute kid you got there.

    Went out for a walk last night and wanted to try some stuff I read on Dave Black's website,
    a technique he calls "moody blue". Look here for more.

    Exposure:0.003 sec (1/320)
    Aperture:f/5.6
    Focal Length:95 mm
    ISO Speed:100
    Great shot. I checked out the website you listed and couldnt find moody blue anywhere. Would you mind posting a link to the tutorial (if there is one) on this moody blue technique~ I really like it.

    Thanks

    I agree. How the heck do you get them to stay still in mid air like that?
    When I try it they always fly away!



    Maybe my aperture is not correct or something? Or should I just buy a D200 instead or one of the KR recommended helium filled lenses? :-)

    Read some of these articles from the "workshop at the ranch" here, he talks a lot about using multiple speedlights and "moody blue"

    K1W1, your shutter is way to slow to stop the action, thus resulting in your blurred birds. Hope this helps.
