    Cowboy Stadium has been at the top of my list for stadiums to shoot for a few years now, and yesterday I finally got the chance. I had only seen it from the outside, a few years ago when I was doing my "Light it, Shoot it, Retouch it" tour in Arlington --- it's within walking distance of the convention center where we hold my classes, and it's just an amazing feat of architecture and design, and when I found out I I'd be here a day early, I reached out over Twitter to find a contact with the Cowboys, and before you know it I was talking with Shannon Gross, Social Media powerful overlord for the Cowboys (and as luck would have it, a photographer). Our shoot was set for 2:00 pm yesterday, and I was planning out my shoot in the morning when…

    Above: One of my favorites from the game. Shot at 6,400 ISO. No noise reduction. OK, it wasn't a pretty game, and it didn't end the way I was hoping, and we had a long rain delay (well, Lightning delay), and I got home hours later than I expected, and I'm still pretty damp from the rain, plus I forgot some important stuff, and just overall....I loved it! :) Above: Here's an iPhone shot of my "Office" for game day. Ahhh, the glamour of sports photography. They really spoil us with perks like free power outlets and fold-up metal chairs in the workroom. There's almost enough for everybody. ;-) I actually have lots to share about the game, the gear, my new fancy-dancy multiple card reader, and my long list of mistakes off the field and in my post-processing, but unfortunately, it's pretty darn…

    Hi Gang: I thought I'd share the painful, behind-the-scenes step-by-step lighting set-up for the BMW 650i I shot a week or so ago at Studio 75 in Seminole, Florida (I shared the final shots on my Facebook, Twitter and Google+ pages). Since I had all the test shots as we were piecing the lighting together, I thought I show you how it looked in stages, all right out of the camera (until the end when you see the final shot). It's not going to be pretty, but here goes: Above: Here's a behind-the-scenes shot of where we finally ended up. lighting wise. It looks like a simple two-light set-up, and it is, but getting there was....was...well…it took a number of hours and there was a lot of "scrunching of my face" during the entire shoot to get it where I was hoping to be.…

    Above: I snapped this iphone shot of of the 200-400mm before I left for the game last night. You can see it's a lot skinnier than the 400 f/2.8, and so lightweight you could hand-hold it without a monopod.  Hi Gang: Well, it wasn't a pretty game, and the Bucs lost pretty miserably, and the stands were pretty empty and....well....(he pauses searching for some redeeming nugget), but at least I did get to try out some cool new gear. After my post about last week's Falcons/Titans game, Canon offered to let me take their new 200-400mm f/4 with a built-in 1.4 teleconverter out for a spin for last night's game. I got in well after midnight and still had a 2nd round of uploads for the wire, so I don't have any game action shots ready to post this morning, but while I was…

    I'm really, really glad I had this preseason game to shake off the rust from the 7-month football shooting drought, because I was some kinda rusty. Whew!!! This was my first shoot of the season and my timing was still a bit off, especially at first, but by the 2nd half, I was starting to feel comfortable again. It was the Falcons vs. the Titans, in Nashville, and I'm there shootin' for the Falcons, with Michael Benford and Jimmy Cribbs (two of the best guys ever). It was my first time shooting a night game at LP Field (all my shoots up there have been day games), so it was fun shooting a night game there, especially with all this new gear (see my post from Friday). Camera Settings I shot the game with two Canon 1Dx bodies (one with a Canon 400mm f/2.8…

    Finally! The wait is over --- Football is back, baby!!!! (Whoo Hoo!!) :-) Tomorrow's my first shoot of the season (well, the preseason), and I'm off to Nashville to shoot for the Atlanta Falcons in their pre-season game against the Tennessee Titans, and I am trying out a completely new camera set-up (Take a look at my load-out of the game below). So, last season when I was shooting for the Falcons up in Atlanta, my buddies Michael Benford and Matt Lange (from the Falcons crew) both were shooting the new Canon EOS 1DX, and they kept running over and showing me some shots during breaks in the game because the noise was just so incredibly low (we all have to shoot at around 4,000 or 5,000 ISO in the Dome at night). I'm used to shooting with a camera that does great at…
