We’ll have to do lunch sometime…

run from or fight its enemies is ‘lunch.'”

Gatorland’s Rare White Alligators

This rare white alligator was found in 1989 in a swamp in Louisiana. The egg nest contained 14 white and a handful of non-white, normal colored alligators. Gatorland, located in Orlando, Florida, has the world’s largest single assembly of these very rare anomalies of nature. They are not albino – they are leucistic, meaning they have some pigmentation. You can see this in the deep blue eyes and splotches of pigmentation around the mouth.
I was 7 feet away from that mouth with nothing between it and me but George, the guy that works with him routinely. As I clicked off my shots, I kept reminding myself George was a closer and more convenient meal. I also wondered if this monster objected to the use of fill flash. Good thing I was using my Gary Fong collapsible LightSphere to diffuse it. Speaking of the LightSphere, I was very pleased with the continuity of the flash-produced light, despite the shot being taken at a close distance with a camera mounted flash and a highly reflective wall of glass immediately behind my subject.

The Gary Fong PowerSnoot®

Gary Fong has produced some of the most versatile and convenient flash modifiers on the market. Using a Gary Fong PowerSnoot® with a hand-held, off-camera Nikon SB-700 flash, I was able to capture the photo below in subdued natural light using no backdrop whatsoever. In fact, the “backdrop” in this photo consisted of lawn and garden equipment and shelves full of tools.

The PowerSnoot quickly and safely attaches to most any standard-size flash unit and allows you to really focus and contain the burst of light emitted by the flash. It can produce some stunning, dramatic effects to spark your creativity and expand how you incorporate flash in your day-to-day photography.

Ooh, It Makes Me Wonder

And it’s whispered that soon if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter.

Due to a glitch in resource management (namely myself), today’s post features a portrait I shot in October last year. I was going to find and include a quote about time management and being organized, but I simply don’t have time…

The essence of competitiveness is liberated when we make people believe that what they think and do is important – and then get out of their way while they do it.
