House Photo

In case you haven’t been over to my place yet this year – dubbed “The West Coast” – we have a large photo (24”x48”) on the wall of the four of us who live here. You should really see it in person, but if you’re unable to make it you can see it below.

It was fun to make. I shot it with a tripod-mounted Nikon D3x and 24mm f/2.8 using a wireless remote. The lighting was a simple setup with one light just slightly more powerful than the other. You can check out a photo of the whole setup including Trevor pretending he’s a photographer right here.

Charger Baseball Fall Classic

After hearing one of my cousins disparage baseball this past weekend in what could have been recorded as a stand-up comedy routine, I remembered I hadn’t posted any of these photos from the Fall Classic series the Charger Baseball team played the other week. A number of these images showcase No. 6, the studly John Bonvillian. Off the field John can be found maintaining law and order on my old hall, Simpson 3FS.

Speaking of sports photography, a sports photographer whose blog I follow had an unfortunate incident at the last race he shot which resulted in the destruction of $11,000 worth of camera gear. It’s sad, but I find the photos of the busted gear interesting. Check it out.

Senior Protest

Last Tuesday I photographed citizens demonstrating against the county’s decision to cut funding for the Senior Center. Read about the controversy here.

Senior Protest

Ella Asaro, 87, protests the city’s decision to withhold funds from the Senior Center. Asaro says she goes to the center four days a week in order to exercise. She says staying mobile is key to help her reach her goal of living to 100.

Senior Protest

Dozens of walkers were lined up outside the entrance the courthouse Tuesday morning, representing all the seniors who were physically unable to be present at the protest.

Swim Team Practice

Swimming is hard to shoot, especially when the lighting is crummy and there’s no way to shoot straight down a lane without getting your gear all wet everytime someone executes a flip turn. I found a spot in the pool where an overhead light was shining, creating a spot a little brighter than the rest and focused there waiting for everything to line up to make the first shot below. These two photos ran in the Collegian the other week.
