    Well, let's get this out of the way first. We lost. At home. Miserably. To a team that's only won 4 games all season. We're out of the playoffs. Our season's over. Ugh! I don't want to talk about it. Until next year, of course. Now, onto the shoot. It was a warm beautiful day (as you might imagine; I had a blast) and I have a quick story to share: It's very late in the fourth quarter, we're a touchdown behind with just a minute or two left on the clock. I'm shooting from the sidelines, right near the Buc's bench, and when one of our receivers drops a pass, I look to the guy standing right next to me, and say something along the lines of, "Oh come on--you gotta catch those--it was right in his hands." He looks at me and…

    I'm finishing up the update to, "The Photoshop Elements 7 Book for Digital Photographers," (co-authored with Matt Kloskowski) and each time I update a book, I always use all new photos throughout the book, which means I have to be shooting pretty much all the time (which gives me a great excuse to use with my wife, "Honey, it's for work." ;-) Anyway, I shot a number of new images just for the book, and I thought it would be cool to do an on-location sports portrait of some local kids who play Soccer (which is called football about every place else on the planet). My buddy Jim Workman is president of the local Soccer (football) league and he set-up a shoot for me with a family that had three talented, fun, and really sweet kids. This was my first location shoot with Brad…

    The spread above is from my book "The Digital Photography Book, Vol 2." It's my opener for the chapter on shooting portraits (click on it for a larger view), and the reason I'm mentioning it is that I found the shot below, showing the set-up for that shot (taken just moments after I took the shot above). I found it this weekend while I was searching for a completely different shot. The set-up photo above (click for a larger view) was taken by my buddy Dave Moser, and that's my buddy Terry White holding a Lastolite 30" TriGrip Diffuser (here's the link to it on B&H) in front of the window. The sunlight was pretty harsh and direct, so I had Terry hold the TriGrip in front of the direct light to soften, spread, and diffuse it, to give you the shot you see…

    I mentioned on Friday I had a shoot this weekend, and this was it----one of the most famous college football rivalries; The Ohio State Buckeyes vs. the Michigan Wolverines. I flew up to Columbus, Ohio on Friday night (with my brother Jeff who came along to hang with me), and when we woke up Saturday morning (game day) it was 17° (-8°C) Brrrrrrr! Luckily by game time it was up to a toasty 32° (0°C), but I was dressed really warm and the cold wasn't a factor----in fact---it was a blast!!!! It was the most crowded sideline I've ever shot on, and I had to jockey for position all day long, which made it one of the most challenging football shoots. I shot with two bodies; my Nikon D3 was my main rig, with my Nikon 200-400mm f/4 lens (mounted on a Gitzo carbon…

    My buddy Jeff Revell, who lives in Northern Virginia, invited me to come up for the day to shoot the International Gold Cup Horse Race, held each year in Great Meadow near The Plains, Virginia (some of my shots from the event are shown here---click on them for larger views). It was a quick trip for me; I flew up first thing in the morning, and back that same evening, but it was totally worth it. We had a wonderful day----absolutely perfect weather, full access photo passes, lots of laughs (as is always the case when Jeff and I get together), and access to a wonderful hospitality tent that was packed with yummy hospitality. What a great way to spend a Saturday! My Sport Photography Gear Air Travel Test I didn't have time to buy a new camera bag (though I got some great…

    I did a bridal shoot last week, and here are a few shots from the shoot. I used the same lighting rig used by Wedding photography rock-star David Ziser, for all the photos you see here (I used flash in every shot, but sometimes I balanced flash with natural light). David's rig is made up of five small parts: A Quantum Qflash T5D (with a pocket-sized Quantum Turbo SC battery pack) A Quantum QNexus Wireless trigger that lets you control the Qflash from either a Nikon or Canon camera A white 39" translucent shoot-through Umbrella A flash adapter bracket This is all mounted on top of a monopod (using that adapter I just mentioned) which is held by an assistant (in my case, I was lucky enough to snag RC to help me during the shoot). I was able to control the power of…
