"It is one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it is another thing to make a portrait of who they are" - Paul Caponigro
Constructive Critique of my photographs is always appreciated
Thanks for the post - I really need a good laugh this morning
How many times have we all done that?

Maybe it just seems longer when you are watching him and squirming, thinking 'glad it was not me' cause the entire video goes for only 21 seconds.
I'm unable to view the video as it shows on my computer as being blocked for copyright reasons.
Is it because he's using a Canon?
(honestly I'm not sure if it's a canon it's just my best guess)
the censoring I mean, not the lens cap.
they might be an official sponsor *grin*
Regards and thanks for the reminder to pay attention to the basics...
There might yet be truth in the rumours that a lot of photographers are painting those
grey whitemuddy coloured lenses black and using opposition brand lens caps so that they don't look like they are using the last decades equipment.
Given I use Pentax I should be the last one trying to start a brand war, we're seriously outnumbered...
Hey, not all photographers shooting Olympians mind using slightly dated equipment...
Perhaps it's a branded ND filter and we're just not getting his brilliance....
Perhaps they are trying to protect the good name of a sponsor (pure conjecture on my part)
Or they might be taking down any youtube videos of the Olympics...
And I mean if people work out that any dumb monkey can buy a big lens,
people might realise that having a big lens does not automatically mean you are a good photographer,
And then my cover will be blown...
(Yes the size of my lens truly exceeds my ability)
I heard a news story on triple J radio about a week ago about the censorship of the olympics in relation to media content. Basically unless it's on TV they will ban/remove it. That includes/but is not limited to: youtube, facebook, myspace (if anyone still uses it), twitter or any other type of media or social media site.
It was very interesting to listen to as even general public that have drawn the olympic rings on a shirt could be up for a hefty fine.

I was out one freezing night, having my first go at star photography. I was trying different methods... long exposure, stacking etc. I left my lens cap on for an hour long exposure.... blissfully unaware :-)
