    I have to find me some LAX to shoot, these shots are so good.
     
  4. These are awesome Mike. I shot some lax today and boy did I have a hard time with the harsh light. Great job shooting!
     
  5. Thanks so much Dave
     
  6. Thanks Frank it is fun to shoot still trying to figure it all out
     
  7. Thanks Ty this sport more that any is a pain in harsh light and the shadows it creates, to get some detail in the face you have to let the white helmets and sometimes parts of the uniform go.

    Very nice shots Mike. You are so right about the harsh lights. You have to pick the lesser of all the evils and choose your sacrifice. SHadows or blown highlights.

    WOW! Not much of a post, but it certainly summed up how I felt when I saw these. You know...I think I could pick out your pictures even if you posted under another name...if you do, feel free to use "deznpj" :smile:
     
  13. Thanks Alex sometimes it is hard to find just the proper balance
     
  14. Thanks Jeff

  15. Thanks so much I sure hope I get the spellign of your name right...spelling is not my strong point
