Friday Night Lights reprise

A couple of weeks ago I checked out the Strobist an hour or so before heading out for my very first high school football game since the late 80's.  Please don't do the math but I can tell you that both my wife and I were scared to death 10 minutes after walking through the RB gates.  I really hate to sound like my parents (sorry mom and dad) but WOW have things changed since we were in high school.  I really miss 'the U' and all the fun that high-school brought.  

While I wasn't going to shoot from the sidelines, David's article about shooting high-school football after 30 years coaxed me to bring a MKII and a couple of 'real' lenses instead of my G1x that normally accompanies me on outings like this.  While I didn't get anything as cool as Mr. Hobby (remember Kate and I were in shock after all) I did get a cool shot of our Bulldogs heading to the locker room at halftime...  

Thanks for the inspiration David, keep it coming!

Say Cheese, Classic non-formal portraits

Spent yesterday with one of my favorite clients shooting some casual corporate portraits. Simply using LED panels and modifiers, coupled with black and white, really made for an enjoyable shoot.  The client requested the black and white and I have to say I love its timeless quality.
