Intro by Skip Cohen
If you're not following Seth Resnick on Facebook, he's only a click away. He's sharing a lot of outstanding content covering everything from technique to calibration to his "why" when he clicks the shutter. It's simply great stuff.
What I loved about this post was its simplicity. The image is stunning, but it's Seth's honesty and ability to laugh at himself that made it perfect for a Friday share. In his post the following day, after another self-inflicted challenge, he wrote:
BEING ABLE TO LAUGH AT YOURSELF. In a world where we strive for perfection, sometimes letting go and simply laughing at your own mistakes is the best way to move forward.
And here's my point - I'm not sure when the world became so serious, but we're all wound a little tight these days. As a result, we miss those moments when we should kick back, laugh a little, and hit the reset button.
Wishing everybody a terrific weekend ahead. Take the time to laugh.

Yesterday we got up before the sunrise and headed to the beach. Nina a young US ranked dancer was practicing and she put on quite a show. While the images came out very nice, there were of course a few issues.
The biggest issue was that my camera equipment came from my air-conditioned house to a humid extremely hot beach. As the sun started to rise my lenses were all so fogged that I couldn’t see through them. It took almost twenty minutes for the lenses to warm up enough to shoot.
One might think that with 40 years of experience I would have avoided this issue but …….Lucky for me Nina never runs out of moves or energy and the light was still beautiful. The lesson here is that even with all the experience etc. Sh** still happens.
