    Damn, I didn't even notice the lighting being different. The new offices look sweet though!

    Alright. The last two games I've been to, there's been a photographer behind the bench during warmups who has not ONE, but TWO D3s hanging around his neck. One has the fisheye on it and the other has th 70-200 f/2.8 attached. Each has a Pocketwizard attached to it.

    Ass-hat has like $13,000 in gear slung around his little neck.

    My question is: Who do the guys who take pictures of the team work for? Are they Kings employees? And where do they park?

    The other night my kid did a Zamboni ride during a game and afterward we road up the elevator from ice level with a guy with 2 D3s with some long lenses on them. I asked how he liked the D3 and he told me it was awsome. Wonder if it was the same guy? He told me that even with the high ISO of the D3 he was still using the overhead flash units but loved the results he was getting.

    I imagine that the overhead flashes allow you to freeze motion even better than with just the high ISO alone.

    I don't know about the Kings photographers, but a photographer friend of mine used to work for the Houston Oilers/Tenn Titans organization. He worked for the team, but he also did some stuff for the NFL. Example, a couple times the Raiders (at the time still in LA) used him for Raiderette tryouts. That was awesome because one year he asked me to come along as his assistant. OK I've gone off topic.

    He also used to go to all the Superbowls (regardless of what teams were playing) and shoot. He was going to take me along one year (as an assistant), but I couldn't get off work. He took a great photo of Emmit Smith that the league used as the cover of one of the Cowboys Championship videos that year. Superbowl XXVII I believe.

    In other words, technically he worked for the Oilers/Titans, they hired and paid him, but his stuff was also used by the NFL and they sent him elsewhere to shoot if the Oilers/Titans were not playing. Again, I have no idea what the Kings/NHL do.

    It's too bad I haven't seen or talked to him in about 10 years now. I don't know if he is still shooting for the Titans, but at one point I heard he was looking to get into the NHL with the Dallas Stars.

    Mongo in his favorite afternoon sunny spot, the back of the loveseat in our bedroom:



    That's with the 70-200mm f/2.8, sitting about twelve feet from him. It's the first shot I've gotten where fill-flash has worked properly. I used the D200's built-in strobe at -1.0.

    And here's another attempt at some HDR imaging. This is the church altar at San Fernando Mission. It's a five-image HDR.



    Lemme tell you, it was dark as a mofo in that place today.

    That is a great shot! Very natural fill, that looks fantastic.

    Another HDR work-up from yesterday's pictures at the Mission.

    Default hockeynuts first photo entries

    Hi,

    I like doing nature shots more than anything so here is my first couple of photos. It snowed here (in MI) so I am going out today and snap a few more off. I have a point and shoot olympus sp310, that one I used to take the bee photo. the second one I took from my camera phone is of my cat. Hopefully the uploading worked if not I may need some help with that.
