Allow yourself to fail. Most of the big successes in my own life came only after multiple failures. It took me more than 12 years to get my well-known photograph “Cranes in the Fire Mist.” I failed every time I tried until I didn’t fail. I failed as a human being in general until I matured. I failed the first time I took the SCCA racing license test. But then I eventually passed it. Failure is normal.

Olympus’ Pro Capture mode allows you to take pictures before you – take pictures. Pro Capture takes advantage of the camera’s electronic shutter. Once you half-press the shutter, the camera starts filling a buffer. When you finally press the shutter, a pre-determined number of images that occur BEFORE and AFTER the actual shutter press are recorded.
