BSU Hockey

Last night I went to my first Bemidji State hockey game since they moved into the new event center. I hadn't planned on shooting any of the game but since I hadn't done any sports with the D800 yet it was a great chance to do so. The 4 frames per second fall a little short for sports but I was still able to get some decent shots.

 Not every shot is a winner, as I was tracking this player the camera locked onto the glass along the boards.

With the option of really high ISO people tend to just crank it up and freeze the action but sometimes it's fun to slow things down a bit and get some blurred shots.
Everything was shot with a D800 with a 70-200mm and processed in Lightroom.

Shot a grouse

I shot this image in my front yard a few days ago, I was going through photos when I looked out the window to see this in the brush on the edge of the yard. I put a Nikon 200-400mm on and since I was in a hurry I needed to hand hold this beast so I bumped up the ISO to 800 to give me a shutter speed of 1/1250 of a second. I think this is a great image to put me over the 20,000 hit mark on this blog and it happens to be my 200th post. Hope you have enjoyed.

A new friend.

I shot this yesterday with my new friend Amber.  I had planned on shooting with my Quadra system but when I started pulling gear out I didn't have the radio trigger with so I had to make due with small flash. I shot it with a 70-200mm on the D800. There was an SB-900 on a c-stand camera right with a Honl grid on it and triggered with an SU-800 and processed in Lightroom.

Sunset with Jasmine

I got to shoot with Jasmine the other night fresh from competing in France. We made this really quick since it was really cold out and we were loosing the light. Shot it with a Nikon D800 and a 28mm, for lighting I used the Quadra in a 39" octa camera right. A few tweaks in Adobe Lightroom and I was done.

A cold day with Sara

Shot this with my friend Sara yesterday. It's a very simple image using natural light with a reflector camera right. I had a 28mm on my D800 and processed it in Lightroom.

Lance and Charlotte

Yesterday my friends Lance and Charlotte got married in a small ceremony at their house and me being who I am had to bring my camera and shot some images.

These were all shot with the 70-200mm on my Nikon D800 and then processed in Adobe Lightroom. The middle image was done with my Quadra setup with a 27" softbox.
