More Playoff Action

Had another playoff game to cover tonight. I broke out the White-Lightnings and I'm glad I did. I was going to set up a backboard remote but didn't get to the school in time.

I am having a friendly competition with my buddy Craig Mitchelldyer. We are seeing who has the best image after each game. He told me I'm making him look bad :-). Dude, it's your fault....you are a good teacher. Anyway, after each game we are going to post one image to the blog. This is my image. Go take a look at his. (click his name)

I don't have a game to shoot until Saturday. He shoots tomorrow. Maybe I'll go out and find a game to shoot. Sunday I should be covering the Gonzaga women in the WCC championship game. Let's hope they make it.

Basketball Playoff Time

High School playoff basketball is underway. Saturday I covered a game for the paper. It was a great game. But it was in a really crappy gym. Small and dark....sucked up all my light. On one side of the court I had to clamp a flash to a banister and every time something exciting happened someone stood up and blocked the light. There was no way I could get the flash any higher. I was able to put a flash on a light stand on the opposite side and get it above heads. The only thing I had to worry about was someone kicking the light stand and moving it.

I decided to use my wide angle as my primary lens for this game. It worked out pretty well. Came away with some good images. I have another playoff game to shoot on Tuesday. Maybe I will try the wide angle as the primary again.

Girls Basketball

The game that I covered for the paper tonight was suppose to be a heck of game. 2 of the top 3 6A girls teams were going against eachother. Lake Oswego ranked #2 in the state against #3 Oregon City. The game was a blow out. Oregon City dominated the game, winning 53-31. Both teams are 10-1 in the Three Rivers League standings. Oregon City has a chance to win it's 14th straight league total. They also kept their 14 year home court win streak alive. (I will have to check to see how many games they have won during the home court streak). I brought along my white-lightnings for this game. I only used one. Bounced it off the ceiling.


It's been a while since I've posted some images of DeShaun. He's getting bigger everyday. While he was playing with his cars I set up a speedlight and a shoot through umbrella and had him sit in a chair and took a few images. 3 shots from our less than 5 minute shoot.

Thursday Night's Assignment

Last night I had to get some images of Mike Doherty, Oregon City HS boys basketball coach. From what I understand he is the 2007 National High School Basketball Coach of the Year and the paper needed an image to run with the story. These are just a few that I got. I sent in a few so the editor could have a bit to choose from.
