For Cathy


Once again, thanks to the folks at Course Technology PTR, who have pioneered publishing digital imaging books in full color at a price anyone can afford. Special thanks to executive editor Kevin Harreld, who always gives me the freedom to let my imagination run free with a topic, as well as my veteran production team including project editor Jenny Davidson and technical reviewer Mike Sullivan. Special thanks to longtime Canon shooter Kris Bosworth, who kindly supplied a frozen moment in time worthy of MIT strobe wiz Dr. Harold Edgerton, as well as other great illustrations. Also thanks to Bill Hartman, layout; Katherine Stimson, indexing; Sara Gullion, proofreading; Mike Tanamachi, cover design; and my agent, Carole Jelen, who has the amazing ability to keep both publishers and authors happy.
