1/1/05, 12:55 p.m., f/6.3, 1/15, ISO 200, nat. win. light, silver reflector, tripod, timer release. Was a tough shot to get- one hand holding mag. glass, the other to press the shutter reease and then grab the reflector while the timer beeped to hold at an angle above the scene! Took so many tries, I'm glad I wasn't working with film! LOL!
