[Sometimes I get asked, let alone assumed, that this is potatoshopped. It's not potatoshopped. How unfortunate that digital technology creates doubts on some authenticity these days. And, no, I have no qualms on digital post production. It's a tool and a personal choice we all have.]

    Stevi Clack, The shutter speed? I can't recall. Could have been between 160 - 250 (with strobes going off).
    Steven Heipel, No cows were injured. Only two glasses of milk were tried. Heh.
