Hi Gang: Just a few quick things:
(1) Tried out a new lens on my 2nd body for yesterday’s NFL game
I’ve really never been happy with any of the lenses I’ve used on my 2nd body for shooting football. I’ve tried the 14-24mm, 24-70mm, 50mm f/1.4, 28-300mm and none of them fit the bill. I usually wind up falling back to my 70-200mm f/2.8 which you do see a lot on the sidelines. But recently I’ve run into a few guys using the 24-120mm f/4 on their 2nd body and they swear by it, so I rented one from http://www.lensprotogo.com for yesterday’s Saints/Bucs NFL game and I’m digging it (and I snagged this shot that was picked for Zuma Press’s “Sports Pictures of the Day.” I’m thinking I might have to pick this one up.
(2) Today at 12:00 noon (Florida time) is the deadline for uploading your image for the Worldwide Photo Walk contest
Hey, there are some pretty kick-butt prizes, so pick your best shot from that day and get in the contest. If you don’t know how, there’s a video from RC on the Photo Walk home page (and I ran it here on the blog on Friday) on how to upload your image. Good lucky everybody.
(3) Dont’ forget tonight is my free online Webinar called “A Walk in Paris”
Here’s the link with all the details — I hope you can join me live at 7:00 PM ET (Florida Time). Lots to share (and we’ll be talking about the Worldwide Photo Walk, making photo books, post-processing, my images from Paris, and much more). I’ll be taking your questions as well. Should be fun. :)
Hope you all have a fantastic Monday and don’t hate your referee for blowing a call in the end zone that cost your team the game, ya know, like mine did. Cheers, -Scott
