The Money Shot
The Money Shot in photography is like the brass ring. It always seems to be just out of reach, but it’s that ultimate prize we all keep striving for. Every time I either shoot with, or talk to, other photographers, inevitably The Money Shot gets mentioned.
I am always trying to improve my photography, or trying to get that one certain shot. This past weekend we were doing an art show and had parked the RV in a vacant lot with a bunch of other artists and their RVs. The first day, we were outside talking to friends and I noticed a kestrel in a nearby palm tree. Now I love kestrels, they are so colorful and very pretty. We see them in Wyoming and I am always trying to get good images of them, so this was a great thing to see. Later that day I saw 2 in the same spot, and realized it was a male and female pair. The next morning they were together in the tree, but I could hardly see the male. He flew off, and I got some photos of the female.
