Nope, not talkin’ about the things that hang in windows to provide décor and perhaps some privacy. I’m talking about timing one’s photographic strobe to flash at the end of a long exposure, rather than at the beginning of a short one, which is the way they usually work. It’s called what it is because the shutters in SLR cameras is sometimes called “the curtain.” In this scheme, you’re popping the strobe at the curtain’s second action (closing), rather than the first (opening).

I'm a lover of bluegrass, newgrass and progressive folk. I've also been involved in classical music for - well, decades. I have, since I was graduated with a degree in journalism, made my living as a journalist and have worked in both newspapers and consumer magazines. Was for a long time at Cycle World magazine, was for a long time at Four Wheeler magazine, then the Los Angeles Times community news division, and was for a while editor of Open Road, Toyota's corporate blog. These days I'm very happily retired. I like Scruggs pickin', but I wish I was better at it. I like clawhammer, but I wish I was better at it. I also play a little mandolin and a little guitar but I wish I was better at them both. Lack of skill doesn't keep me from fun, enjoyment and satisfaction, and that's what's important. At least to me.
