If I were you I would leave that sort of thing to the Vet.
They use an injection rather than shooting the poor thing.

My trick is similar to Les Dawson's piano playing.
He was a very accomplished player, but he played badly on purpose to get laughs.

Just like my photography...

true Luis, it's a Wind Power station with all guff and hot air floating around in there!

I guess the thread's on about what you photograph and how you do your photography.

Are you happy to do pretty much the same thing in the same style every time you go out (which is good, cause if you're getting consistent results, why change it), or are you into diversity and pushing the boundaries and learning new styles ?

To my wife's horror I made a wood bracket which goes across our cars roof bars, then another for my camera, cable tied everything together. I then drove around with the camera on the roof and took photo's using a cable release through the window, looked like something out of National Lampoon's Vacation but; hey I had fun.

Don't think it really matters. Each to their own. However most photographers are striving to improve their photography, and do new things.

I once tricked someone into thinking I was a photographer, does that count? Smile

I'm full of tricks - but photography's not one of them.
