Is a model release on file if needed? (Yes/No/NA)

no

What day was the photo taken?

September 17, 2010

Photo Description

Tiger swallowtail in my wife''s flower garden. I call this photo "Upside-down Lunch". I am physically handicapped and cannot walk or stand still very well and therefore take lots of shots in the backyard. A telephoto lens works to help me overcome my disability.

Do not let your physical disabilities prevent you from enjoying photography. If you can enter a road race in a wheelchair, you sure take photos from this same chair.

Advice

  • I used a zoom macro lens on an old Digital Rebel . I used a remote shutter release and a tripod. The tripod is important for good focus, especially with macros and a remote shutter release adds to the quality of the shot by taking out the chance of vibration from finger movement on the camera.
