    I always love it when I copy a card to the computer, review what I just shot, and find a nice surprise. This weekend I agreed to do a little product photography (some t-shirts) for a friend that's starting up a website - anyway, I was using my radio trigger to fire off the camera to test my lights and didn't think about where the camera was pointed. Today, when I downloaded the photos - I found this:

    Unfortunately no, it looks that way, but that's not what happened. I had just come from that particular flash, I had just turned it's receiver on. I walked over to another flash (off to right side of image) and after turning it on, I hit my remote trigger to make sure the camera and all 3 lights went off (as you can see, the one on the left didn't). My son has been in a bit of a "copy everything Daddy does" mood the past week (which I love, soooo cute). My camera had been sitting on my table and I wasn't even aware it was pointing in the direction that it was. I didn't see this image until I copied the card contents to the computer and loaded up Bridge. Happy surprise.
