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

  1. Just want to say hanks for how commited you are to photography, photoshop and your fans. I respect you, as well as learn from you. (Also, you’e my motervation. This might sound bad but my motervation is to become as good as you or better, but you’ll always be the best to me.)

  3. Hey Scott,

    Great Capture!!! Question. How do you think this lens will perform in a night game situation with that high of F stop? I’m thinking in terms of more noise base on increased ISO. I forget, what camera body is your second camera?

  4. Curious as to your crispness experience with that new 24-120 f4. I have the 3.5-5.6 of same length and it’s fairly soft, but then again it’s also getting old. I love the range of focal lengths. btw – I’m one of the few in the world that actually like the old Bucs unis over the new ones…

  5. That “Walk in Paris” skyline photo is magical! Your talent knows no bounds…..

  6. Re: A Walk in Paris ==> I know you were on vacation, but would Jay Maisel say you were in one of the most exciting cities of the world and you only took pictures of Kalebra and a waiter for your book; the rest of the pictures were of unrecognizable people, stone and concrete?

    • I think you’re a bit confused. Jay Maisel is a street photographer. I was doing travel photography on my own vacation. I would no more ask Jay what to shoot on my vacation that he would ask me what he should shoot on his — they’re totally different styles of shooting.

  7. Hi Scott,
    Thank you again for the photowalk and thanks for this webinar too!
    I’m considering buying Lightroom 4 now… but before taking any decision, do you think it would be possible to watch your webinar again?
    Tks in advance,
    The girl with the red boots
    PS : Say “Bonjour” to Kalebra!

  8. Scott, are you going to post the finished Paris book like you did the India book. Thanks for the great video posting of you photo walk
