yes, every blue moon i shoot sports.
i shot one football game last year and this year i got to shot one too - here's a shot of the head coach giving a chest bump after a score.
thanks to carrie niland for her assisting and coaching me where to sit (i really don't know what i'm doing with sports). due to her help, i was actually able to shoot halfway decently. got to partake in some dinosaur bbq grub as well - mmm, dinosaur.

me myself and photoshop
so i've been really wondering how some of the photographers out there are mining images and get richer detail out of images etc. it's a great illustrative tool and an key inspiration behind this is:
this kid is amazing and his work has been a real inspiration to me. i think he's only 18 years old - makes me even more impressed by him as i learn more.
some friends from work and i have been trying to understand these techniques, and finally it's making sense. so what better monkey to practice on than myself.
you can dress up a monkey, but it's still a monkey.
and on a side note, i'm not arguing the ethics of this one way or another, nor am i doing this on daily work for the paper - i think it's just great to have another tool in the pocket for illustrative purposes/freelance commericial work. it'll be interesting as this becomes more common what the general thought of it is as far as it applies to photojournalism.
