Photographer's Note

Driving through the Tunisian countryside we came across a traffic jam of cars, animals and pedestrians. It was market day in a little mountain village. I screamed to my husband to let me out and grabbed my camera and zoom lens. Until now I had not managed to photograph the local Berber women in their colourful costumes. While the locals were busy haggling for merchandise I could easily walk around, stand almost face-to-face with my subject and shoot close-ups. It was a scorchingly bright day, so I pumped up the shutter speed to 1/250 -- fast enough to shoot hand-held with a 200-mm zoom. This is one of the results.

Technical notes: 1) The rule of thumb for getting sharp images with a hand-held camera is that the shutter speed should be equal to the focal length of the lens. 2)It was so bright that even with the fast shutter speed I got disturbingly sharp backgrounds. So I darkened the background in pp with the dodge tool and used a bit of gausean blur.
