Cavaliers vs. Pistons a Photographic Endeavour Every Game

Tonight’s Pistons game was more energetic and interesting. The game was more fast paced than the last few have seemed, and the crowd was even seemingly more energized. I am not sure what it was that made the game feel that way, since the stadium was still only at less than half its’ capacity. I had a good game and made some good images. Overall I … Continue reading Cavaliers vs. Pistons a Photographic Endeavour Every Game

Detroit Pistons Vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

After a week and a half on the road the Pistons returned to the Palace and faced the Oklahoma City Thunder. After living in Oklahoma for a year, I never became a Thunder fan. But my girlfriend is, so I must be careful what I say about them 😉 The game was very close, and much more exciting than the previous games. Though the Pistons … Continue reading Detroit Pistons Vs.

Detroit Pistons Vs. Atlanta Hawks

This past Friday I had the opportunity to shoot the Detroit Pistons vs. the Atlanta Hawks at the Palace of Auburn Hills. I had the opportunity to shoot the game because of a connection I was able to make through some family and friends to the official photographer for the Pistons. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity, and hopefully I will get to shoot … Continue reading Detroit Pistons Vs. Atlanta Hawks

Birmingham Seaholm Water Polo Vs. Chelsea and Troy High

I am getting a little better at water polo. This weekend I  shot water polo twice. The quality of my shots are getting better, but they still need some touching up in lightroom. The lighting in the pools is absolutely horrible, even with a 2.8 lens I am still slightly dissapointed. I am fortunate that I can run iso 1000 without much noise. I really … Continue reading Birmingham Seaholm Water Polo Vs. Chelsea and Troy High

But for now, … Continue reading Florida Sea Base Reef Fish Identification Edition II

Star Trail Photography Continued

Star Trail Photography Attempt 2 Tonight I tried once again to put together a decent star trail photo using my canon 20d and a decent manfrotto tripod. Unfortunately there is a lot of light pollution in my area, so the number of stars you can see in the shot is limited. But I will definately be setting up this shot in the future when I … Continue reading Star Trail Photography Continued

Experimenting with star trail photography

So tonight I tried once again to capture a star trail. I set my camera up for an extra long exposure, for about 40 minutes. Again it failed miserably. So I decided to finally do some research. I found this tutorial via google, and it provided just what I needed, directions, and even freeware to go with it. It was exactly what I needed. You … Continue reading Experimenting with star trail photography

Another Successful Week

With another successful group of students certified this week, today I enjoyed a couple fun dives with a great group of guys. Each week is different, a different group dynamic, but all my crews have been great this summer. Teaching this summer has been a challenge to say the least, but I have learned alot about myself, and what I am capable of. I also … Continue reading Another Successful Week
