If you like sports portraits, you'll love this!!!

I ran across this website/blog today, and I was impressed with the work. Kelly Kline does a lot of sports-related photography for editorial and commercial clients. I've done shoots for Slam Magazine (a basketball magazine) in the past, and I noticed several photos she's also done for Slam. It looks like shoe's also done work for ESPN and a bunch of sports pubs that I've never heard of (but, I don't really follow sports, so I'm sure there are plenty of great athletic magazines that I'm clueless about).

Anyway, she has some great "behind the scenes" pics on her blog that will answer some of your "how did she did that?" lighting questions. And, even if you aren't looking for tips and tricks for shooting better, you can still be wowed by all the great athlete portraits and action shots she has...

I would SOOOO love to be using this right now...

Of course, I'm not so rich that I can just buy this for the heck of it, and 99.995% of my clients don't need a file that big. It would just be overkill for all my newspaper clients and most of my magazine clients. But, how I would soooo love to pull my Hasselblad gear out of storage and start clicking away again. Maybe I'll score another big $50k shoot that will allow me to pay for this? Think it will happen in the current economy?!? I'll keep my fingers crossed, but I won't be holding my breath.


Are you following my State Fair of Texas posts?!?

In case you didn't know, I've been posting a daily State Fair of Texas photo over on the Quick website. If you love the fair as much as I do, you should be checking their blog daily at noon! Here's a link to a couple of the recent picture posts:

I will post one for each day of the Texas State Fair, so keep coming back y'all!

The audience can be even more fun!!!

Sometimes the audience can be even more entertaining than the band playing on stage. Take the recent Slayer and Megadeth concert, for example. I had some really great pictures of the bands performing, but I couldn't resist getting a few images of the audience getting rowdy. People were being pummeled in the mosh pit and getting hit by crowd surfers. This shot of mine ran in the Dallas Morning News and proves that audience pics can be just as fun to shoot...

This is what I see at night...

I wind up shooting in night clubs all the time - capturing the energy, the lights, the color, the movement... making a still photo look and feel like the real thing. This is where I go when I try to capture Dallas on film at 1am. This is what I see. This is what I do...
