    Saturday night I got a chance to shoot the USF Bulls vs. Western Kentucky football game from the sidelines with my buddy sports photographer Andy Gregory. Here are a few of shots from the game. (I got the image above just as the team had gathered in the tunnel to enter the field through an air curtain of C02) Lens Length vs. ISO & Noise Issues When I shot the LSU - North Carolina game a few weeks ago, I took my new 300mm f/2.8 lens, and absolutely totally loved it, but you do have to hustle a little more up and down the sidelines to stay close enough to the action. Saturday night, I used my 200-400mm f/4, which worked out pretty darn well because of the extra 100mm reach, but I'm not sure it's quite as magical as the 300mm f/2.8, with…

    My good friend Moose Peterson wrote just a fantastic post on his blog last week called "Dreams can take flight", and while it is about an experience he had in aviation photography where he captured some of those truly once-in-a-lifetime images, his story that led to the photos is about much more than that. If you want to start off your Monday right, click right here. The images range from fascinating (the ones leading up to the shoot), to just "Wow---I'd have given anything to be there..." type of shots, but take the few minutes to read the whole story. Very powerful stuff, surrounded by very powerful images. You'll be glad you checked this out.

    A few weeks back, I did an interview with Sophia Betz from the blog "The Photoletariat" and one of the questions she asked me "Which photographers inspire you?" Besides the ones I mention here on the blog (like Moose Peterson, Jay Maisel, Dave Black, and Jeremy Cowart, among others), I listed a number of other photogs whose work I go to when I want to be inspired. People whose work makes me want to grab my camera and start shooting. The list wound up being so long that Sophia asked if she could run it as a separate post, and last week she did. Here's the link to the list of photographers that inspire me---some very well known (like Joe McNally) and some you may not have heard of, but I find myself going back to their work again and again. Hope you find…

    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…

    Hi Guys: The very awesome and cool Brad Moore sent me this mondo epic video (ABOVE) from David Bergman, Bon Jovi's tour photographer on their current tour (My son and I are big Bon Jovi fans, and we caught their tour earlier this year, and met up with Dave before the show. Here's the link to Dave's Guest Post on my blog from earlier this year). Anyway, I thought you guys would enjoy the video. Many thanks, and hat's off to cool, awesome, and awesomely cool Dave Bergman for this epic, mondo cool video (sorry, all the cool's and awesomes are a cool awesome hangover from Brad's Pimpy Post yesterday. Brad's cool like that). You can get all the details on David's blog and over at Fstoppers.com, the guys who produced the video.

    When I shot the LSU vs. North Carolina football game last week, I wanted to take my new 32-gig Lexar Professional 600X high-speed UDMA memory card out, and when I popped it in the camera, I have to tell you—my jaw dropped when I looked at the LCD readout on the top of my Nikon D3, and saw that in JPEG fine mode, I had more than 4,300 shots available on that one card. Seriously---wow! I snapped the shot you see above of the LCD readout window using my iPhone 4 on the balcony of my hotel before I left for the game. Now, later Paul Abell snookered me into shooting a sporting event in Raw mode, so my number of available shots went down to around 1,200+, but still---that ain't bad for just one card. By the way---the Lexar 600X card is insanely…
