    Expensive photographs

    Yesterday I paid $500 for a series of close-up photographs. The photographer, a much more skilled individual than I am, was using equipment that few of us could afford.

    He photographed me from an unusual angle and proved to be an expert in low light photography. The lens produced very clear images despite the poor natural light. He did, however, compensate for the lack of natural light by employing a small supplementary artificial light close to the lens. Despite the short focal length and the somewhat cramped circumstances, he managed to produce several quite detailed images although quite expensive on a “per image” basis. Colonoscopies tend to be like that.

    Bobt it is customary on this forum to share your photos. I appreciate the fact that you didn't actually take them however I'm sure we are all eager to see you very intimate portraits. Unless of course you think they are crappy.

    Thanks! Yup ... all is well, except for those who were present and observing proceedings. I understand their therapy is proceeding nicely. Myself, I just enjoyed the nap!

    And if Bob was worried about giving away his identity he could post half of each photo and call them a semicolon.

    At $500 a pop I settled for the tail option! For top and tail they might just use a pull through (for those who are familiar with cleaning rifles). The mixture isn't all that bad now ... sort of fizzy drink stuff. Good for people on the go (once you've drunk it).

    Been there, done that. Both ends. (But not at the same time.) As far as photography is concerned I think I will stick to landscapes and let someone else do the low light interior shots.

    All CC very welcome. I'm keen to learn.

    You can get a DVD of the procedure. My brother's mother-in-law got her DVD and made them all watch it. Erk!

    - thanks for the laugh. Unfortunately a necessary evil most will have to experience at one time or another.
