    Sure is nice when you don't have that shadow going across their eyes. Nice timing on the light and direction! I know how rare those games are sometimes. Great shots, like the processing. Joe

    Always being with the family doesn't leave a whole lot of time to play photog but they do let me get my rig set up. I sit with them and fire it off remotely so they never know... Joe

    Coolest time-lapse in history...

    I'm bias since I was there to see STS-131 go up in person but still, I'm grateful NASA let photographers have the access and time needed to create this masterpiece of one of the greatest vehicles ever created. http://www.airspacemag.com/multimedia/videos/Go-For-Launch.html Joe

    NBA All Star Game - as a fan...

    Because it's a wide-angle lens the floor looks farther away than it was. You could easily tell who the players were but with the binoculars it was as you were sitting courtside so it's not as bad as the images might make it seem. For a football game, these seats would be golden! As for the...

    NBA All Star Game - as a fan...

    So we got some last minute tickets to the NBA All Star game that put us on the 45 yard line, 12th row (not on floor) of Cowboys Stadium in Dallas. Stuff like that doesn't happen to us so forgive me if this seems like I'm a braggart. Face value of the tickets (just as an FYI) was $350. So we...

    Sending camera up in balloon - how to point?

    Thank you for the replies and links, I'll go through the ideas this evening. Unfortunately, I can't effectively do the three line solution as I'll be working within a 10 foot radius and with line that long you have twisting and turning which is ok as long as there's a focus point it comes...

    Sending camera up in balloon - how to point?

    Ok, I have a question... I have a camera that is suspended 300 yards in the air, tethered to the ground. My problem is how to keep the camera pointed in one general direction. It doesn't have to be perfect, just majority or defaulted in one direction. Does anyone have any thoughts or ideas...

    World Football Challenge (Soccer) - Chelsea vs Club America

    From inside, I thought they were showing something bright on that huge screen before I realized it was lightning outside the huge windows on both endzones. It was lighting up the place and the thunder sounds were huge inside. People would cheer when a large clap of thunder struck. It was very...

    World Football Challenge (Soccer) - Chelsea vs Club America

    I was using a D3 with a 200-400mm f/4 VR. ISO 3200 for most the night. The crop of the sweaty header is a 100% crop. Joe

    World Football Challenge (Soccer) - Chelsea vs Club America

    Got a chance to go to the new Cowboys Stadium here in Dallas to shoot the WFC soccer match (the last in a series of 6 games held throughout the US). Chelsea beat Club America 2-0 to capture the championship. It was a fun game with some truly colorful fans! So here we go... There was no...

    Leica M8.2 - A brief and uninformed review

    Thanks. I'm far from an expert in the system and most of my comments were in comparison to my experience with the D3 which has the best viewfinder of any Nikon digital (the F6 has a wonderful viewfinder as well). To be honest, I did find myself adapating to it after a while so I don't know...

    Leica M8.2 - A brief and uninformed review

    When you get the rare opportunity to try the Leica M8.2 camera you don't say no. Throw in two lenses, a 18mm f/3.8 and a 90mm f/2.5 and color me gone. To preface, I'm a lifelong Nikon shooter and pretty secure in my choice of camera manufacturers. I always enjoy trying out other camera types...

    Parents and copying images

    You think parents give a rats arse they are violating your copyright?!? Seriously? You think sending them that kind of statement is good for your business and will generate more sales as opposed to those parents telling other parents how psycho you are? I think you might do better to re-think...

    Review - Zeikos grip for Nikon D300/D700

    Hi all, I've enjoyed the discussion so far, it's been a fun read. One thing I did want to emphasize was that I'm not so much endorsing Zeikos as a company or any of their products I haven't used as much as specifically identifying their D300 grip as a worthy alternative to Nikon's version...

    Review - Zeikos grip for Nikon D300/D700

    I got a chance to use both and didn't notice any difference in the connection. It connects the same way the Nikon version does and did not come loose at any point (and I used it aggressively for two consecutive 12 hour shoots). I had no problem holding the setup by the grip.

    Review - Zeikos grip for Nikon D300/D700

    Ha! I'm glad they got to you. I could buy THREE of these before I'd have to shed a tear about a warranty issue with the "name brand" version. I guess that goes for lenses too right? CF cards? Only Lexar and Sandisk for you? Or is it just international vs USA versions? Batteries? All name...

    Fly Fishing spot suggestions needed!

    Hi All, I've been hired to shoot some travel photos around the subject of fly fishing. I'm looking for a location in the United States that is scenic both in a lodge as well as fishing areas. It comes with a fairly solid budget but places like Nimmo Bay is out of the question as I'm not...

    Review - Zeikos grip for Nikon D300/D700

    So I got a D300 and was looking to get the grip. Luckily I have a good friend who lent me their Nikon grip to try out and afterwards I knew I needed to get myself one... First off, there are some advantages to getting the grip for the D300. It allows you to use an EN-EL4 battery (the one used...

    NASCAR at TMS

    Thanks all. I've gotten a lot of positive response from the jacks shot. I don't know if it's because of the visual or if it's just an image people don't normally see... The track shots were taken with a 200-400VR. I also used a 70-200, 14-24 and of course the 10.5 for the "fan" shot. Joe

    NASCAR at TMS

    On a pure photography level NASCAR racing is a fantastic challenge. Lots of color and high speed action. And when you finally get 43 cars and 150,000 people together it actually makes for some nice imagery.... Joe

    He was supposed to but had to cancel out at the last minute. Pure torture for a guy like David!

    ADRL Drag Racing - Houston

    Thanks all. The kind words are appreciated! Equipment used was a D3 with D40x as backup. Lenses were the 70-200 and 14-24 for most shots.

    ADRL Drag Racing - Houston

    Got a chance to shoot the ADRL drag races in Houston this past weekend. Had a great time and got a lot of opportunities to try different setups, remotes and angles. It's always a blast to have the media guy tell you to just go have fun and shoot what you want, where you want. If you choose to...

    Star Trails in Granbury

    First off, I had no idea the stars would be so visible so I did not bring my locking remote. What I did do is use interval timing on the D3 and set it at a 30 second exposure every 30 seconds. This shot is a composite of 70 shots taken over a 60 minute period and then combined in PSCS3 (60...

    Thank you for all the kind comments. It's very encouraging! The boy is 9 years old and has been playing for a little over a year (and apparently addicted to it). I'm not a big fan of selective color but this is what the client asked for. Actually, they asked for B/W with the guitar in...

    Thursday Night Basketball

    Nice set of photos! I tend to like the ones where the crowd is a bit more isolated than the ones where they almost overwhelm but you did a great job shooting wide open to minimize that effect. Joe
