    Last week went well, so I thought I'd return and try some different settings, etc. I also had a few prints to drop off, the actors all seemed to appreciate the shots.

    Nice shots
  3. nice shots, esp the fire-eating one, that has to be a tough exposure.

    Was that bozo (that was getting in your way) back?

    Thanks. The fire eater is actually easy, I looked at last weeks shots, and found the one that I liked the best exposure-wise. I wrote down the info, set the D300 to manual and shot away. I had given the performer a couple of prints earlier in the day, he recognized me when he did the act and positioned himself for my benefit.
    The bozo is long gone, he works for a small newspaper and they only were at the opening day. There were a couple of repeat shooters but the amateurs seem to be more polite than the so-called pros.
