Another Tethered option

Today I found a new tethered shooting option for use in Lightroom. Its made by Mountain Storm. It allows you to manually control you camera and it imports the file directly into Lightroom. The best part is it works for Nikon and Canon cameras. Its also free! You can download it here.


In photojournalism class we had to go out and shoot a feature assignment. I decided to the local skate park in Mountain Park of Lilburn, GA. Here was my selection for the assignment.

Off the Glass!

Remember that old McDonalds commercial that had Micheal Jordan and Larry Bird get into competition over a Big Mac:
Well here is a photographers take on that featuring legends Joe McNally and Scott Kelby:

Post Processing

Recently on the "Ask the Photographer" blog I found an article on Dustin Snipes post processing of recent assignment for Sports Illustrated . The shoot was of over 70 of the top high school basketball prospects. He had to shoot it two days and only had the hotel as his shooting location. The images are great and he didn't do whole lot of photoshopping to them. They are lit well and mostly burned and dodged . The article is here.

Dustin Snipes

A few years ago I was looking through the web site and found who is now one of my absolute favorite sports photographer Dustin Snipes. I first saw his work as it was critiqued to the 2006 Best Student Portfolio. The year before he was a runner up in the competition. See his work here.

Lighting Set Ups

Since I've been using lights I'm always thinking of different ways to set them up for different effects for my photography. I recently found this video from owner\photographer Mark Wallace about different lighting arrangements.

Shooting Finally!

Lately I have not had a chance to shoot anything except for studio stuff. Today I went and shot for my feature assignment as well as for myself. I went to the local skate park and had blast. Here are a few from the day.
