I normally hate the proofs and descend into a pit of despair at my complete lack of skill and talent. For some strange reason everyone else likes them and I get asked back. There's no accounting for people's taste.
Great to hear from you again Helen!
I don't understand what you mean by 'pinch'.
I'm trying to (if I can get away with it) hand hold most of the shots but if all else fails have my trusty tripod always with me.
I find tastes have the biggest Circle of Confusion!
