    On Tuesday I did a post about my latest "Epic Remote Camera" fail (my 2nd fail in a row at an NFL game). The camera shoots fine in tests minutes before the players take the field, but once I move into position a bit farther back and the players actually come out, the remote camera only triggers intermittently at best. Arrrrggghh!!!) ABOVE: That's my basic remote floor mount rig: four pieces: a metal floor plate (from fplate.net), then an Oben BB-0 Ball Head which attaches to that plate. Then a PocketWizard Plus X and a sync cord that connects the PocketWizard to the camera. The Camera is a Canon 1Dx and I generally use either a 16-35mm lens or an 8-15mm Fisheye zoom.  Anyway, the folks at PocketWizard contacted me and had some ideas as to what might be causing the interference, and strategies to…

    Above: Me and Mike Carlson, lying down on the job getting our focus set. I use auto focus to focus on the spot where I think the players will come through the smoke (Chip Litherland and Casey Brooke Lawson were our stunt models for focusing position), then once the focus is locked in, I switch Auto Focus off (Photo by Casey Brooke Lawson) OK, the remote shoot wasn't exactly "Epic" but to be fair, my buddy Mike Carlson (who shoots for the Bucs) warned me in advance that because of a series of factors, it's very hard to get an epic shot of the player intros at Raymond James Stadium. One being that the pyro comes out on these big rubber wheels, and they are incredibly distracting (he was right, and it was worse than I thought); plus you have a huge Publix sign…

    Last Saturday I shot a wedding in Orlando, Florida and I thought I'd share a few pages from the Wedding proof book I put together in Lightroom. This was about as ideal of a shooting situation as you're going to get: The bride and groom, Ryan and Lindsay, could not have been easier to work with, and Linsday was a stunning bride (and both Ryan and Lindsay were both very photogenic, which made my job really easy). They were really a joy to photograph and they were incredibly accommodating. The groomsmen and bridesmaids were wonderful and the parents couldn't have been nicer, and the surroundings were first class all the way. The pre-wedding and reception were held at the gorgeous Ritz Carlton, and the ceremony itself in a beautiful church in Winter Park. I really wanted to do this right, so I brought some serious…

    Hi Gang: Sorry I've missed the last couple of days of blogging (it's been crazy around here, and my travel schedule is…well…crazy! I was in Denver Sunday, Miami Monday (still down here, shooting an online class with Jeremy Cowart today), and then I'm back in Tampa tonight. Whew! Anyway, it was an amazing game to cover, and the weather held up and it really wasn't too cold. In fact, it was great weather for a game. Brisk, but not windy. I came away with 60 overall keepers from the game and 62 image for the assignment I was on (which was to cover four specific players, but mostly Peyton Manning, and I have a ton of shots of him). Down goes the photographer A lot of you saw me get knocked over late in the 4th quarter, on a play that was reviewed (so…

    This weekend, I had absolutely one of my most-fun football weekends ever, covering the University of Tennessee Vols big upset win against the South Carolina Gamecocks in Knoxville, Tennessee on Saturday and then right after the game flying over to Atlanta to shoot with the Falcons crew for Sunday’s game. It doesn’t get much better than that! Today, I’ll cover Saturday’s game and the two locations we mounted remote cameras. I called my buddy “Big Daddy” Don Page (the head of sports photography for UT) and asked if there was any chance of us mounting a camera on the Goal Post itself. I often see video cameras mounted up there, but so far I haven’t seen any still cameras, so I thought it was worth a shot. Don worked on it, and sure enough — on Friday we got the go-ahead, with the warning…

    I get that question fairly often, and I can tell you straight out --- it's not as many as I'd like, that's for sure. Yesterday, when I posted some of my favorites from my Bucs/Eagles shoot over on my Facebook page, I got a number of questions along these lines, so I thought I'd cover it here: Q. So, how many shots did you take at the game on Sunday A. Exactly 1,873 Q. That seems like a lot A. I know, but I've been told I under-shoot by quite a bit. I talked to another shooter at a game a couple of weeks before and he had taken over 4,000 shots that game, and he chuckled that I only had taken around 1,600. Q. So what ratio would you like to have of keepers to ones you delete? A. When I go to a game…
