If at first you don’t succeed…
Check out my goof up from last winter.
These images are a good example of why photographers need to get out and try new things with their cameras. You’ll either get something good, or you’ll get a lesson. My lesson from this shoot is that 1/100th is too slow for snowboarding shots. I shot these on burst mode with the plan to combine several exposures, showing the progression of the jump. Unfortunately, they all came out blurry. I could have easily boosted the ISO or opened the aperture a couple stops to get the faster shutter speed I needed, but hindsight is 20/20. Combine that with the super busy background, lame composition, and dull lighting; and you’ll begin to understand why I never posted these last winter.
I recently started working on a marketing project for a company through UW-Stout. I will be heading up the content marketing and social media aspects of the project. I want to include as much visual media as possible. Here are a couple portraits from my last photo shoot. Click on one of the images to open the photo carousel.
Last Saturday I volunteered for the Help Portrait charity organization with several other UW Stout students and faculty. The image above, taken with my phone, shows the equipment set up by the Stout crew. We worked from 9 am to 4 pm, and the event in Eau Claire helped over 100 people get portraits made. http://help-portrait.com/
