Happy accidents happen

Sometimes when you're shooting the drummer during a drum solo you get to shooting so fast that the flash can't recycle fast enough to keep up.

Usually I end up tossing these as they are unusable. Especially since "I am KNOWN for my drummer shots!"

But every once in a while you get one of those strokes of good luck where the Rock Gods and the Photography Gods get together and decide to throw you a bone.

Great photo !

That is brilliant. It's a pity that the edge of the "Bud" sign was cropped or you might have been able to sell it to them for a promo. It could still be worth a try.

Great Idea, now to scrounge up the money for registering the copyright on it!

That's a full frame shot, no cropping on my part.

I'm hoping the band hires me to do promo photography of them and shoot them in a bigger club (or at least one with a bigger stage). I could get a model release signed by the drummer than.

Of course this is what I NORMALLY get when the flash has time to recycle.

One final example of why "I'm known for my drummer pictures."

And why it's better when the flash has recycled.
