    now, where have I seen a picture like that before - it looks vaguely familiar.


    Nice one, Steve.

          His is more grainy and less sharp than yours, but he did get the poster of the leaping dancer in the background.

              I'm glad you mentioned this; the number of times I've viewed the image and it's the first time I've consciously noticed the poster of the leaping dancer. He was the true MASTER of photography. Pure genius.

                Ok Mark, you've got me on this, what on earth is ProCap. Is it some sort of lens cap designed so that you can't take pictures of a lens cap you've inadvertently left on the lens when using a RF?

                  Sorry Steve, was just joking. FYI, ProCAp stores photos in the buffer only you half press the shutter. On fully pressing the shutter, the last photo and the previous 10 (?) are also stored. Good for birds taking off, or sports photos...…...or puddle jumping...

                    Sounds great, but I'm getting a bit old for all that new-fangled stuff!

                      Ah, ok, sort of got it?!
                      But the thing is, like HC-B, I was using film. And if you were to look at the contact sheet you would see that there is only one frame devoted to the puddle jumper.

                        Me too, but the ProCap description could be used in place of anaesthetic. I'm feeling drowsy already... 100, 99, 98...

                            The guy is definitely looking at the lens, but I was concentrating on his foot to click at the right moment.
                            I have a copy of the Magnum Contact sheets and find it quite inspirational. Unlike the 'Masters' I'm far too stingy to waste more than one shot.
