Shooting Sleeve Heads can be frustrating. Some times I’m able to get a shot I can live with after only 3 or 4 tries using my 10-second timer and tripod. Then there are the times like this shoot when I need so many takes I lose count before I’m able to get a shot I can live with (You can tell from my expression that I’m not too happy with my ability to visualize where I need to place the album).

The photo isn’t worthy of Carlos’ work, but the record album is “Santana’s Greatest Hits,” an album Carlos might like. It’s the thought that counts…right Carlos?

    I think you placed it in the right place..where the wings of the eagle and your shoulders line up together..John, a bird brained thought that came to my mind is to attach artificial wings to your shoulders...LOL:) ..Scratch that thought:) I am so bad at critiques:).
