Gonzaga University’s Kraziness in the Kennel 2015

It’s the first introduction of the men’s team with an exhibition game.
Did mention I’m an avid fan?
This event will get you pumped!
There’s so much energy… 
the house is packed, the rowdy Kennel Club Student Section is joined by the Band
in a roof raising collaboration of cheer & song.
 
smack talk alert :-)
Coming off an incredible season last year, 
the Zags bring another fantastic roster to the floor…
there is lots of talk about some unfinished business to take care of this year???

Most of this shoot was with the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens.
There’s a few iPhone 5s photos in the gallery as well!

The Inland NW Craft Beer Festival 2015
I captured some fun images at this years Celebration…
Most of the two day shoot was with the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens.
Using a monopod allowed me to move smoothly through the crowd while capturing sharp images.
Great craft beer, music & gourmet food down on the baseball field…

Elephant Seals, Isla Cedros, Baja California, Mexico

Protected by the Mexican Government in 1922, Northern Elephant Seals were on the verge of extinction being sought for their blubber, used in Quilliq stone oil lamps of the time.
With populations now recovering, rookeries can now be found along the remote Pacific Coast islands of the Baja Peninsula northward to California’s Point Reyes and Canada.
Huge bull males can reach upwards of 18 ft in length, up to 6000 pounds!
I was so excited to photograph these amazing creatures,
in this image a Bull pops his head up from a crowd of females.
Visiting this remote site was not easy… located just north of the 28th parallel, over 60 miles off the Baja coastline, the best access to the island was aboard a Douglas DC-3 taildragger that flew over from Ensenada.
Upon landing, transport of our gear was arranged with a local fisherman to a remote campsite near the breeding rookery, we had two days on this amazing playa.
Looking back at the shoot, seems we were crazy to get as close a we did, I remember the incredible noise that the large colony made through the night and a lesson learned that camping upwind was certainly less stinky!

Captured in February 1987 on Kodachrome 25, Nikon F3, Nikkor 80-200mm

Cheeseburger! Cheeseburger! Cheeseburger!

Yesterday’s studio shoot was the “classic cheeseburger”…
Sharp Wisconsin Cheese, Tomato, Red Onion, Lettuce on a Sesame Seed Bun.

Have you ever done an online search for “tips for photographing a cheeseburger”?
There’s tons of info available to save time with one of the toughest challenges in food styling.

This was my first opportunity to try to the Photoshop Focus-Stack feature.
Four images were combined to achieve increased depth of field.

Shooting the Sony A7- ISO 50
Focal Length- 180mm
Aperture- f/2.8
Exposure Time- 1/25 second
