    On Thursday night I got a chance to shoot FC Tampa Bay Rowdies (a pro team in the North American Soccer League), vs. the Austin Aztex and although I didn't shoot worth a darn (and the score ended in a 1 to 1 tie. Ugh!), I did try out a few new things, and learned some things along the way. Shooting at 6,400 ISO The uninspiring shot you see directly above is only remarkable in that it's the first time I've really shot at 6,400 ISO (click on it for a larger view----no noise reduction applied. The one at the top of this post was shot at 3,200 ISO. More on that in a moment). Normally, for night games I would be shooting in the 2,500 to 4,000 ISO range (2,500 at ISO f/2.8 or 4000 at f/4) but the game was held in…

    I mentioned on Monday that a got a chance to shoot the LSU vs. North Carolina College Football Kick-off Game on Saturday in the Georgia Dome with my buddy, Atlanta-based pro sports photographer Paul Abell (here's Paul's guest post on my blog). We really had a ball, plus it was a terrific game, coming down to the last 2-seconds, where the Tiger's defense was able to hold off the Tar Heels from snagging a last second victory. This was my first time out shooting with my 300mm f/2.8 (a gift from my book publisher [Peachpit Press] for being named the world's #1 best-selling technology book author for the 6th year straight. I know---totally awesome publisher, right? Plus they really know how to give a gift!!!!!). :-) Anyway, here's a few shots from the game. I am getting better at my timing, which is something…

    Hey everyone, RC here. I was chatting with Scott a couple of days ago about my experiences at the Star Wars Celebration that just happened in Orlando, FL – and he thought it a good idea to share them here on the blog. I was happy to oblige! [NOTE: RC is being kind here. I absolutely loved his images, and the story behind them, and I begged him to do a post about it—Scott].

    I walked into this opportunity not really being a Star Wars fan. I’d seen the second half of the movies as a kid, but never really got around to watching the three prequels. For the most part, I don’t watch a lot of movies, so it wasn’t something that I felt I was missing out on.

    Why I Went
    elvis-1What attracted me to go to this convention was passion. I’m a passionate person by nature – you kinda have to be to work here. Because of that, I find myself attached to people who are really into being passionate about things. I don’t follow sports, but i’ve always wanted to be friends with one of those superfans who paint themselves with the letter D and hang out by a stadium.

    I mean, i’m the guy who drove by myself a ton of hours to go to the “RC Cola Moonpie Festival”. I love talking to people about the things that they love talking about. The sparkle in a person’s eye is just awesome- I guess it’s why I enjoy environmental portraiture as much as I do. To be able to go to a place where people get dressed up to pay tribute to something that they love was just something that I couldn’t pass up.

    I packed a bunch of lights in my car and headed out to the convention. I was prepared for anything – from small lights to a pack and head scenario. More often than not, i’m usually the guy that’s packing 6 strobes so this isn’t entirely out of character. It’s the McNally in me. Last minute – I threw my tripod in the car, not really knowing why.

    Hi Gang: I took last week off and headed up to Kennebunkport, Maine with my family for a week of just doin' nuthin'. It's so hot down in Florida, my wife wanted to spend a week someplace where you didn't break into a sweat just looking out the window, so off to Maine we went. Although we were there for a week, I only went "shooting" twice (well, technically two and half times, as you'll read in a moment). Once when we took a one-day trip up to Bar Harbor (about four hours away), and once with my buddies Scott Eccleston and his photography business partner Mark Hensley (both of whom I met on my first trip up there back in July of 2007). Here are a few shots I got along the way (I haven't gone through all of them---I had a flight…

    Hi Gang: Just a quick update from Los Angeles where I just spent an amazing day with entertainment photographer Jeremy Cowart shooting two live on-location classes for KelbyTraining.com I always feel like, if I take a class and I learn even one new thing, it was totally worth it. We were only about 30 minutes into Jeremy's first class and I had already learned half a dozen new things. I was blown away! By the time the class was over, my head was swimming with new ideas, and things I just had never thought of. I called my wife at the end the day and here's exactly what I told her: "I learned more about photography today than I have in the past year!" I'm not kidding. We filmed both classes in the same documentary style as our online class "A Day With Jay…

    What a perfect day! I just got back last night, I'm still grinning about the wonderful day I had shooting the Cubbies. Even though I was in/out the same day (flying up from Tampa for the game), it was totally worth it. Wrigley Field is truly a Magical Place I had never been to Wrigley field before (one of the last classic iconic ballparks in America), and as much as I love Boston's Fenway Park, I think Wrigley truly takes the cake. It's everything from the hand-updated scoreboard, to the ivy in the outfield, to the way the park blends in, lives, and breathes with the surrounding neighborhood. I can't imagine a better place to take in a game. (Above: An 8-frame pano taken from the 2nd deck, right behind home plate---click on it for a larger view) Cubs Fans Rule! The Cubbies are…
