    (Above: Saints QB Drew Brees takes the field to start his history-making night. The story behind how I got this shot, and why he's looking right at me, is below).  I finally got a chance to go through some of the images from this week's Monday Night Football game, between the Atlanta Falcons and the New Orleans Saints. I was there shooting for the Falcons (so they got all my original untouched images, right off the cards, while I was still on the sidelines.  The ones I'm showing here are my final images, which some have have been cropped, and some have had the contrast boosted, and all of them have been sharpened. The story on the shot of Drew Brees at the top of the this post: When I shot for the Falcons in Atlanta, we're on their home turf, so we pretty…

    Ron Martinsen just posted an in-depth review of my latest book, "Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it", on his blog, but besides the fact that he did a review in the first place (which I appreciate very much), I think it's cool that he took some of the concepts from the book, tried them own, and showed his own results. Here's a link to the review (wouldn't this be a great use for some of that Gift Card money you got for Christmas? I'm just saying'). ;-) Cheers, -Scott

    Getting Ready for 2012 - Or 12 New Year’s Resolutions for Photographers When my friend Brad Moore at Kelby Training emailed and asked me to do a guest blog post about getting ready for 2012, I said, “Absolutely.” That’s after I said “thank you" to Brad, Scott and RC for thinking about me for this post. Saying “thank you" is important. More on that topic later in this post. I said “Absolutely” because that’s exactly what I have been doing for the past few months. As a photographer, professional or enthusiast, you gotta plan ahead. After carefully considering the many things we, as photographers, need to do in the planning process, I picked my top 12 recommendations for 2012. Here goes. 1. Set goals If you don’t set goals, you really don’t know where you are going - and how you are going to…

    When I was out in Los Angeles for my "Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it" tour, USA Today came by for an interview about what I take on the road when I travel. They did a cool little video where they show all the tech (and non-tech) stuff I travel with, and in the article they list everything I carry in my Think Tank Photo laptop bag. The article, and video, are online now in Jefferson Graham's "Talking Your Tech" section (Jefferson is a photographer himself), here's the link to the online version of the story (and the video) is below. The story is in today's print edition of USA Today in their Tech Section. UPDATE: I got a copy of USA Today at the hotel this morning, and here's how it looks in the print edition (see below): Onto the Big Game It was a history-making…

    Hi Gang: Our offices are closed today as part of our Christmas break, so it's super-fluffy blog post Monday. Today I'm flying to New Orleans, Louisiana to shoot the Monday Night Football NFL game between the Atlanta Falcons and the New Orleans Saints. It's my first time shooting in the Super Dome, and I've always wanted to see it, plus this is a HUGE game (conference wise anyway----but Atlanta just clinched their playoff spot last night with the Packers win), and since it's a Monday night game, it'll be nationally televised (keep an eye out for the guy with the yellow tape on the top rung of his monopod. No ball cap this time, since it's in a dome). Hope everybody has a great day today (and I hope Santa brought you lots of cool photo gear and Photoshop stuff!). Merry Christmas everybody and we'll…

    OK, I just had to share this because...well...it's Sports Illustrated, and I am just really excited!!!! This was shot on assignment for the wire service I shoot for, Southcreek Global Media, at the "Beef 'O' Brady Bowl" (A Big East conference college bowl, played at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida). During Bowl Games we try to upload images from each quarter live as the game unfolds, and so this year I again asked Matt Kloskowski to be my editor, and he worked up in the Press Box above the field during the game and after  (see his photo below). (Above: Here's Matt's view from the Pressbox, taken after the game with his iPhone. He added a few annotations to show you how rough he had it). ;-) Matt gave a behind-the-scenes report over on Google+. Here's the link). Matt and I didn't get…
