    Here's a few shots from my sideline shoot at the Tennessee Titans vs. Detroit Lions NFL game on Sunday. It was a wild game, that went into overtime (the Titans won in overtime), but ask anyone that watched the game --- it was a roller coaster and a blast to shoot (especially since I was shooting with the amazing Donn Jones and his Titan's photography crew -- just a great group of guys --- a very talented group but they know how to fun, too!). I feel like I did better this time out, and I actually got a few shots I like, but I still need to work on my position and timing to get where I want to be. Trying Out Some New Gear: The Nikon D600 I have the just-introduced Nikon D600 on loan for a couple of weeks (for a…

    (Above: My new Retina MacBook Pro, shot with my iPhone, but there's something missing that should be there). It's Game Day! When you shoot an event for a sports wire service, they need the images from the game as soon as possible, and so during halftime I upload half-a-dozen images, and then immediately after the game, from the photographer's work room at the stadium, I transmit (as it's called) another 25 or so final images. They have free wireless in the workroom (and now, in the entire stadium for fans as I noticed on Friday), and there are power plugs and a counter to work on. (Above: Another iPhone shot, this one of the Photographer's Work Room at Raymond James Stadiums. Ahhhh, the glamorous life of a sports photographer. They really go all out for us. LOL!!! There are two rooms like this, side…

    One of the most frustrating things about photography gear is that sometimes there are SO many options available to you, it makes it challenging to find exactly what you want. It's why so many photographers I know (yours truly included) have so many different camera bags, and lenses, and tripods, and filters on and on. We'll all searching for "the one" that will do everything we want. Every once in a while, you find it. Just like I've been searching for the perfect iPad portfolio App. There's a bunch out there, but none of them did all the things I wanted one to do. Some did most of what I wanted, and some did some of what I wanted (and believe me, I tried them all), but I have finally found it. Best of all, it's only $12.99. I'm not sure I have anything…

      Scott, thanks for the opportunity to put a few of my thoughts down for your readers. Not exactly the circumstances under which I envisioned being your guest blogger, but now I have a goal to do this again under different conditions. First of all, I’m of the belief that direct customer input (any kind) is good, so I don’t mind all the comments and ideas – they are all part of the journey to keep improving. We constantly strive to deliver the best customer experience to protect data, and we take this very seriously.  Better to know than not knowing. Regarding your case Scott, the bottom line is that we made a bad judgment – our agents are trained to immediately swap or upgrade (regardless of warranty condition) if they see what you saw on your video – but we made a rookie…

    I've finally reached the point that I'm done with my drobo, which I use for the archiving of my photos. I actually use three drobos: one in my office, one in Brad's office (onsite backup), and one at home (offsite backup). Now sadly I'm going to have to move to a different platform altogether because drobo finally pushed me to the point of no return. What I love about drobo What drew me to drobo in the beginning was the fact that it constantly monitors the health of my hard drives. So if one starts going bad, or gets full, my drobo will warn me, and robotically shift my data to other drives installed in my drobo until I can replace that drive. Keeping a photo archive intact is very, very important to us photographers. Why I'm done with drobo Because for the fourth…

    d800sm

    I've had a lot of people asking which model I ordered; the regular D800 or the 800e where Nikon has removed the anti-aliasing filter (it's supposed to create a little sharper images but without the filter you run the risk of certain photos having a moire pattern). Well, I went with the model WITH the filter (the regular Nikon D800). I talked with a few friends that have shot the camera, and they suggested for the range of photos I take (from people, to sports, to fashion to travel), that I just stick with the regular D800 (which saved me a few hundred bucks to boot). I've had to remove Moire from photos in Photoshop in the past and it is a BEAR!!!! Plus, from what I hear (and have seen at high-res) the D800 is so insanely sharp that I'm cool with leaving…
