Triple-button shot makes photo history!
It’s me, Blog Guy, that aspiring photojournalist. I think it’s time I try some tougher shots. You know, the ones that only the pros can do. Like say you have some world leaders together and you want to show action?
Sure. The great shooters will do this by showing them buttoning their jackets. If you can get two of them to do it simultaneously, that’s solid gold.
Awesome! Is there lanything better than a double?
Well, there is… oh, never mind, it won’t happen again in your lifetime.
No! Tell me what it is! I can handle it!
Look, in theory there’s the trifecta – three jacket buttonings at once – but that’s a shot we only dreamed of, until it really happened yesterday. We’ll be talking about it for years and years to come, so save a copy for your grandchildren.
