Oops, touched the shutter button to soon...
Lens: FA31mm Camera: K-1 Photo Location: Hallum, the Netherlands ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/320s Aperture: F4 
Posted By: Fries, 09-06-2018, 12:26 PM

I normally don't share photo's that are a write of. But this one... This is wat happened. To end a big restoration program two public officials were releasing two ducks into the air. My camera was in the wrong drive mode and I had to film this at the same time with another camera on a tripod when I had to shout to stop the proceedings because another photographer moved into my shot. In short, it was messy! In between filming I quickly made a JPG out of the raw file and then made some fast edits after I transferred it to my phone and send it to the newsroom. When I arrived my colleagues where smiling...a lot! I did too after seeing it on a bigger screen. I won't describe what it made them funny to them...

Cheers,

Remco

Reminiscent of Owen's performance on "The Vicar of Dibley"? Priceless!

given the rates you'll get for news photos you could find this more lucrative as a blackmail shot; especially with two possible payers

Glad you guy's like it! I have to smile every time I see it. For the blackmail idea to work I guess I shouldn't have published it here I suspect.

In hindsight if something I do with a camera makes people smile that's a succes in my book. Thanks!
