You feel butterflies in your stomach, adrenalin in your viens and joy in your heart. As a photographer this means you either just fell in love OR you just got, "the shot". Marc Montocchio of Occhioinc.com sent me his video of how he fell in love... no wait, of how he got the shot, shown below. Come to think of it, he does seem pretty obsessed with marlin so it's hard to tell either way.
...to get this cover shot and to make this video. Check out Marc's blog page if you want to hear how it took years for him to get what he envisioned in his head to what you see before you. Sometimes art takes time. Be persistent and stick with it readers, stick with it.
