    I forgot to post this fisheye shot from the game in Miami last week, but when I was getting ready to post it, I thought, "I wonder if I should correct the fisheye distortion?" So, I gave it a shot. In Photoshop CS5, it's an automated process---just open the image in Camera Raw, go to the Lens Correction panel, and turn on the Profile correction and it does the rest in all of two-seconds flat. Here are the results: (Above: Here's the original uncorrected photo, taken with a Nikon 10.5mm fisheye---a DX cropped lens on a FX full-frame body. I love how this DX lens looks on the Full frame body---it's not too over the top). (Above: Here's the fisheye effect corrected, removing all the roundness that comes with shooting a fisheye lens, using the Photoshop technique I mentioned above). The top one looks…

    I shot the USF Bulls vs. Pitt game the Saturday after the Bears/Dolphins game and just wanted to share a few shots from the game. I used the same camera set-up, settings, as I do for any day game: Aperture priority mode; both cameras at f/2.8 all day. Both cameras at ISO 200 all day. I love day games---you set it, and forget it, and just work on your timing, and not worry about ISO or camera settings, or anything. (Above: The receiver just scored a touch down and while he's making the rounds of the end zone, he just flicks the ball behind him, and I was right there in front of him with a 400mm lens. One of my favorites from the day). (Above: This shot breaks all the rules---it's not an action shot---the ball's not in the shot---he's just standing there.…

    And yeah baby, my Bears won 16-0!!!!! (That makes the Bears 7 and 3 this season, and puts them in first place baby, yeah!!!). OK, I had to get that out of my system first. Now, onto the shoot (and my near freak out!): The game was a week ago Thursday night in Miami at Sun Life Stadium. The shot above was just a glimpse of the really tough night Miami back-up quarterback Tyler Thigpen had, as he gets sacked and fumbles (he was sacked numerous times and flushed out of the pocket and had to scramble all night long). He actually played fairly well, but their offense could never put enough together to really get in the game. (Above: I love this shot because you can see the Dolphins Wide Receiver Davone Bess literally running right over his own Center, Cory Procter). I…

    Two weekends ago I got an assignment from Southcreek Global Media to shoot the 2010 Foster Grant Ironman Triathlon World Championships, held in Clearwater Beach, Florida (the image above is from the start of the race. As luck would have it, the athlete I focused in on wound up coming in third). I had never shot any kind of Triathlon before (and honestly, I didn't know that much about them), so I had to do a lot of research before the shoot to get an idea of what kind of coverage to provide. Even at that, it was a real learning experience, and now that I've got one under my belt, I already know all the things I'd do differently next time. Above: The panning shot above was taken in Manual mode, at 1/50 of a second, so I could blur the background as…

    Hi gang: I had really hoped to have something really meaty for today, but instead we have some shots from a college football sideline shoot I did last week: USF Bulls vs. Rutgers (the mid-air shuttle pass shot above is one of my favorites from the game). Here's Why: OK, it may be partially my fault (OK, more than partially), but Matt, Brad Moore, and RC must share the blame because we all started playing the just-released Call of Duty: Black Ops (on XBox LIVE) at around 9:00 pm, and it is now 1:42 am, and we just this minute signed off, and I haven't written one word yet of today's blog post (well, except for the few sentences you just read, of course), and I'm pretty beat, so this is mostly going to be just shots from the game. The Good News The…

    On Saturday, I hopped an early morning flight up to South Bend, Indiana to shoot the Notre Dame vs. Tulsa game, along with my buddy Jim Workman (a lifelong Notre Dame fan), and his son Kevin. So, first---how did I wind up shooting "The Fighting Irish?" At this past Photoshop World, one of the two inductees to the Photoshop Hall of Fame was NAPP's Help Desk Director Peter Bauer. He brought his wife Mary Ellen O'Connell along to see him receive the award, and during the opening night party, Pete mentioned that Mary Ellen was going to be honored with the game ball at halftime, and that they were watching the game from the University President's suite. That was all I needed. I'm like "Pete....buddy....do you think you can use some of that juice to get me a sideline pass to shoot a Notre…
