  • Hi Gang: It's 2:00 AM Chicago time (so 3:00 am for me, whose internal clock is on East Coast time), and I just got back to my hotel room after a sideline shoot of the BIG Chicago Bears win over the Green Bay Packers. RC sent me the screen cap above of the ESPN TV broadcast last night as I wound up on the air a couple of times. My cell phone kept going off with texts from friends saying "I just saw you on TV.' I just saw you again!" I was cracking up! The highlight of the game was getting to shoot the 2nd half with my buddy, and Chicago Bears Chairman Mike McCaskey. He's a terrific photographer, and he's shot both college and pro sports but he rarely gets to shoot his own team, but last night he hung out with…

    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…

    Hi Gang: I know many of you have generously supported the Springs of Hope Orphanage in Kenya this year, and I wanted to give you guys a quick update on a some great news: (1) The sales of t-shirts from my Worldwide Photo Walk raised over $7,000 this year. This could not have come at a better time. I got an email from Molly Bail, who runs the orphanage, looking for help in covering transportation costs, clothing, and school supplies for the children in the orphanage, and right about that time Rob Jones (from Towner Jones Photography, who organized the sale of the shirts), let me know that not only had we raised that much, but that the first check was already on its way. Way to go Rob, and to everyone who bought a shirt (100% of the profits went to the orphanage).…

    Hey gang, Brad here with the latest installation of Pimpy Thursday!  Let's get to it... App developer Shawn Welch (creator of the Photoshop World app) just released the Presenter Clock app for iPad and iPhone. You can read Terry White's full review right here. (Just to give you an idea of what he thinks, here's a quote from the review... "If you give any kind of timed presentations, this is a MUST HAVE APP!") And, hey... It's only $.99! Moose Peterson just announced his new aviation photography workshop, called Air2Air, a few days ago. If you're an aviation and/or photo enthusiast, you definitely want to click this link. :) Speaking of aviation photography, Bill Pekala, head of Nikon Professional Services, has a great series of blog posts from the Reno Air Races! Check them out from beginning to end right here. Our buddy Terry…
