    glasshole

    Welcome to my world (well, as of late). This is the small hole in the glass you get to shoot through when you're shooting hockey (The NHL made the holes smaller recently to protect the photographers and players). The one here is from Saturday night at the Tampa Bay Times Forum (the arena where the Tampa Bay Lightning play their home games). I've talked with other photographers shooting hockey, and they tell me they would kill to have any hole in the glass, because they have to shoot through the glass, which is often 1-inch thick and almost guarantees their shots won't be nice and sharp, so I really shouldn't complain. Here' the view if you angle  your camera in that hole as far as you possibly can and shoot blindly down the rink (I say blindly, because it would be kinda hard to…

    LightningSharks2

    (Above: You might be wondering "Scott, why the static no-action shot?" That's because I've found that when the players aren't moving, it's somewhat easier to get a shot in focus, and that "in-focus" thing was eluding me most of the night, so I posted this shot to prove to myself I can shoot a sharp still life. Maybe next time pears in a bowl). I shot another NHL hockey game last night (the Tampa Bay Lightning vs. the San Jose Sharks), and while I certainly did some things better, I didn't do enough of them to actually share the actual shots. My painful dance of learning to shoot through a very small hole in the ice continues. My angle this time was actually worse than in the other game, and I could only shoot the goal directly in front of me, and about 3/4 of…

    d800sm

    I've had a lot of people asking which model I ordered; the regular D800 or the 800e where Nikon has removed the anti-aliasing filter (it's supposed to create a little sharper images but without the filter you run the risk of certain photos having a moire pattern). Well, I went with the model WITH the filter (the regular Nikon D800). I talked with a few friends that have shot the camera, and they suggested for the range of photos I take (from people, to sports, to fashion to travel), that I just stick with the regular D800 (which saved me a few hundred bucks to boot). I've had to remove Moire from photos in Photoshop in the past and it is a BEAR!!!! Plus, from what I hear (and have seen at high-res) the D800 is so insanely sharp that I'm cool with leaving…

    motocross1

    I've been shooting quite a bit lately for the book I'm just finishing up and I thought I'd share a few shots from a shoot I did on Monday, set up for me by my friend and neighbor, photographer Kathy Porupski at a motocross track in Dade City Florida. (Above: Here's a behind-the-scenes shot. You can't tell from this shot, but my photo assistant Brad Moore is way up on a hill that the riders jump over. That's my friend and fellow photographer Kathy Porupski holding the power back behind Brad, and I'm below them a bit farther down the hill). We used natural light for a lot of the action shots, but we also used an Elinchrom Quadra battery back and strobe head with a 27" soft box (or just a reflector and grid) for some of the shots, and all of the…

    d82

    Since my post last night here on Google+ (http://www.scottgplus.com), and here on my blog earlier today, I've seen a lot of comments flowing in pro and con about this camera, and I just want to say a quick few things about the comments I've been reading thus far: (1) The D800 was apparently created for a very specific type of photographer  There is no law that every camera introduced by a camera company has to be designed to fit your personal needs. If you read that it has 36.3 megapixels and you're like "36.3 megapixels is overkill!!!" then obviously this camera isn't for you, but that doesn't mean there aren't photographers out there who read that spec and cheered! (Me being on of them). It looks like this was designed for commercial photographers, and wedding and landscape shooters that want to be using a camera with Medium-Format…

    d800dslr2

    36.3 megapixels (wow!) with a full frame sensor. Full HD video with stereo sound (yay) built in HDR (sweet) and it looks like its aimed at the commercial, wedding and landscape markets (photographers who shoot medium format digital backs. I mean who used to shoot digital backs). ;-) I haven't seen one, held one, etc., but it sounds amazing and I want one. Bad!!!! (And yes, sometimes you need 36.3 megapixels). Two words: Whoo Hoo!
